    you know that income inequity thing? did you know that the stats being used are per house hold, not per individual? and how that impacts them? consider in the ‘old’ days only the husband worked. now days it both husband and wife. and then of course expenses are higher.

    then there is the higher cost of education.

    and of course some thing not noted is that risk is now a great deal higher in families than its ever been. sort of like how business and finance like to avoid risk. now families have to do that too

    Apparently businesses are discovering that right-sized, out-sourced, under-employed workers spend less than they used to. Who would have thought? Hopefully somebody else’s company will step up to the plate to employ them more lucratively so that they will spend more money at your company. Meanwhile, selling to those Indian and Chinese consumers who have been building your products seems to be occurring slower than projected.

      If not for 1% hauling in 95% of post-Great Recession income growth and spending so much of it on itself the U.S. would still be mired in financial crisis.
