Berg argued, somewhat incredibly, that the case "is not about building
a luxury shopping mall or providing parking spaces to its citizens."
Instead, it's about "whether state and local government can play an
active role in economic development." Well, sure, but it's probably most
accurate to say that the case is about whether the city can heavily
subsidize a luxury shopping mall in hopes of landing economic
development in its borders, and not in neighboring suburbs. Then again,
no one's asking for our summary!
