please explain how retail sales # beats when most retailers had horrible negative nov comps. smells like we live in russia were #'s fixed
I think they are right. The malls are packed by me and it seems people are spending money like crazy. Much better than last year. I think the numbers for this season are going to be up, profits may be only up slightly because of price markdowns, but sales numbers may be way up.
yes americans have too much money and dubai too and meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
were so rich half our mortgies are currently headed towards foclosures! hahaha ya baby spend spend spend party in the usaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
I can tell you right now- I have alot of contacts in the retail business (both domestic and abroad), and December is an absolute DISASTER vs 2008- especially in the high end of the market. Most of these contacts are smaller retailers that cater to higher end clientele. Lots of business bankruptcies coming in early 2010, and many of these small businesses have been using credit cards to get by. If you aren't a huge publicly listed company with access to the capital markets, you're pretty much screwed if you need capital at reasonable rates...
Early 2010 will make 2009 look like a picnic.
too funny, please read and do some research before you spout off a moronic statement like that. The story is on the host page of yahoo finance. The people on these posts know a lot more than the so-called overpaid out-of-touch economists and media cheeerleaders.
u dont need to know any numbers. americans are broke and we spend money we dont have and learn nothing and now are at it again.
Heres the only number you need, 49 million people receive foodstamps.
approx 200 mil adults /50mil equals 25%.
