Shop or Drop?

Consumers are spending but for how much longer? Over the past year disposable income is down, savings has fallen from 5.3% to 3.5%, household net worth has fallen by $2.4 trillion as house prices keep falling and credit card debt is up. Luxury spending is strong but chain-store sales were down in Oct and Nov as were purchases by the middle class. I don’t think households can keep spending at the elevated levels of late.
