Gruen’s response was America’s first modern mall, something he envisioned as a hub for dense suburban developments that would include apartment buildings, hospitals and office space.

Lest someone wonder, Would framing price as a moral dilemma be the ultimate pricing ploy?, the answer is no: 87 percent of customers chose the lowest price, Preysman reports.
