Hiring up 3.6%, wages down by 5% will just be a wash for the economy. Its
doubtful that shopping and credit buying will be any better. The economy
hasn't improved for the necessities in life and the trinkets will not be so
important to consumers anymore. Consumers are tired of the debt and
higher bank fees and getting out of debt has become an economic emergency for
consumers. I think the consumer buying and spending will not be as popular as in
the past. For one thing tax refunds will fall dramatically becasue of the ACA
tax and penalties will reduce the debt spending of the past.
