    No headline - Economy » Abilene Reporter-News



    Consumers, who drive most economic growth, spent more on cars, furniture, electronics and other goods in July and more in May and June than previously thought. That burst of activity is encouraging because it shows many Americans were willing to spend despite high unemployment, scant pay raises, steep gas prices and diminished wealth.

    If it keeps up, the economy might rebound after growing at an annual rate of just 0.8 percent in the first half of 2011.



    Now if the corps hire like they say they plan to in the third quater then you will have to work even harder to find a way to trash consumer confidence

    The biggest threat to the economy right now is a group of Americans who will do ANYTHING to trash the economy so they can win the next election

    The ones Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh hinted at in their brainless rants, that is as much evidence as that poster needs to call it fact.

    Threats = the constant call to increase taxes

    BG926nbsp How Regulation is Destroying

    The True Costs of EPA Global Warming Regulation


    This info has been around for sometime.

    Before Obama, regulation cost US business 1.75 trillion a year. Did you think adding another trillion a year would cause business to fire up the hiring? Then add Obumblecare and compliance costs go higher.

    Coincidently it is also back-to-school time.
    Who da thunk retail sales would rise slightly?
