Consumer Confidence Tumbles


by Steve

Consumer confidence is tumbling in the wake of Katrina and higher energy prices. That should knock down consumer spending in advance of what may be a lean holiday shopping season. Note the comments from Ken Mayland of ClearView Economics, who had previously been a cheerleader for this economy.

Go ahead Felonious Tom; bring on that back-door Social Security privatization grab. With consumer confidence numbers like these as a backdrop, that should just about kill off the GOP next year.
