Did you know that 2/3 of the US economy is consumer spending? You might think, as I did, the majority of our economy would be some kind of raw material production or export, but no – it is our consumer dollars. So we need to, those of us who can, go out and buy something. Buy something that we can afford. Buy something that will make us feel good. Buy something to give as a gift to make someone else feel good. We each hold the power to stimulate the economy–get out there and buy something!
