The Economy is finally turning positive?

Well Wall Street is excited about the high Black Friday sales. And the data is in on the Cyber Monday sales, up 33% over last year. And consumer confidence has seen the biggest increase in about 8 years, 15 point increase (btw, have you been asked questions about your confidence in the US economy? I haven’t. Who are these “consumers” speaking on our behalf?).

So things are looking good, well minus the housing market and the unemployment rate (maybe the rate will fall – report due this Friday). And, what’s going on in Europe is still sketchy.

I hope the momentum continues in the right direction. It would be nice, finally, to emerge from this long-suffering recession.
