Broken record

December 1, 2008

After all the doom and gloom in the news, I was a bit surprised to read this about black Friday weekend:

The National Retail Federation said 172 million shoppers went to stores and Web sites, a 17 percent increase from a year ago and more than a forecast of 128 million. They spent an average of $372.57, up 7.2 percent from last year

MORE people spending MORE money. How can this be?

(Insider trading puts me in the Christmas spirit (and the concert was kick ass))
