I received a press release today that deserves a few minutes of your scanning. It’s the monthly consumer confidence report issued by The Conference Board.
It shows that consumer confidence actually trended up this month for the first time this year. Is this a sign that we’re going to start hustling and bustling again? Well, little by little, it is my belief that the answer is yes. By the end of this year, we’ll be shaking off the worst of things and getting back to full-boar business.
Also included in the press release is specific data about which regions are more confident than others, and intentions to purchase major ticket items, like homes, cars, major appliances, etc.
Fascinating stuff – enjoy!
Hope you see the signs of hope and promise that I do and that you start planning and acting strategically now to take advantage of the economy as it returns incrementally…
