It's The Economy Stupid: Income and Spending

Personal Income was up +0.3%, which is down from the prior period’s +0.4%.


Personal Spending was a no-go.  No growth.  +0.0%, which is down from the prior period’s +0.4%.


So Personal Income is not growing much, and as a result Personal Spending is not growing.  Sounds like individuals are acting in a practical manner given their lack of increases in income. 


Now, if only the government would do the same…
