It's The Economy Stupid: Greece Buys Mega Million Ticket

Just kidding about the Greece thing. 


Consumer spending in the U.S. rose in February by the most in seven months, showing the biggest part of the economy is strengthening. 


Purchases climbed 0.8 percent, the largest gain since July, Commerce Department figures showed today in Washington. The median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News called for a 0.6 percent increase. Incomes advanced less than projected, sending the saving rate to a more than two-year low.


So, out growth in spending is greater than our growth in income.


Laissez les bon temps rouler!!!
