On cognitive functions interrupted (and the growth of two retail corporations in the US)

I haven’t been able to write much since the equivalent of a permanent shock affected my production function as well as its slope (break ups are always hard, being the dumpee is even worse, in the long run we are all dead).

I’m slowly regaining use of my cognitive functions. For I don’t want to leave Ben alone in this blog any longer, I thought of posting two maps showing the growth of two retail corporations in the US: Wal Mart (1962-2006) and Target (1962-2008).

This might interest fans of urban and regional economics (or not). Anyway, I promise that the quality of my contributions to this awesome blog will increase. Just have a little faith on me.

    Good to have you back. Don’t worry, as we say back home “un de perdu, dix de trouvés”.

    Where are the other nine?

    Would love to know what went out of business in the four-state wasteland (KS, MO, AR, OK) that target concentrated there and TX for their first expansion.
