When a community opens a large shopping mall, it often expects a boost to the local economy, and in fact a large amount of economic activity goes on in these malls. Yet the increase in the local economy is typically much smaller than the total amount of economic activity that goes on in the mall.

Which one of the following, if true, most helps to explain the discrepancy described above?

(A) When large shopping malls are new they attract a lot of shoppers but once the novelty has worn off they usually attract fewer shoppers than does the traditional downtown shopping district.
(B) Most of the money spent in a large shopping mall is spent by tourists who are drawn specifically by the mall and who would not have visited the community had that mall not been built.
(C) Most of the jobs created by large shopping malls are filled by people who recently moved to the community and who would not have moved had there been no job offer in the community.
(D) Most of the money spent in a large shopping mall is money that would have been spent elsewhere in the same community had that mall not been built.
(E) Most of the jobs created by the construction of a large shopping mall are temporary, and most of the permanent jobs created are low paying.

If a large shopping mall is operated, it is expected that the economic activity that goes on in that mall will contribute to the local economy. However, the increase in the local economy doesn't equal to the total amount of economic activity in that mall. Thus, there must be an amount of economic activity in that mall isn't created for new, it is taken from elsewhere. D conveys this well.
