Alex chats up the man who only needs one name -- Maguire.
On today's Planet Money:
Another very special radio competition. We sent Adam Davidson, Chana Joffe-Walt and Alex Blumberg to the International Council of Shopping Centers' New York Conference and challenged them to bring back the best economics stories they could find. Listen to their stories, hear our panel of celebrity judges weigh in and then decide who you think should be the winner.
Bonus: Listen to each story individually and vote for the winner, after the jump.

Adam meets the anti-mall radicals.
Chana goes in search of the cool kids.
Alex meets the burger king.
Cast your vote before the poll closes at 11:59 PM on Wednesday December 23!
