The signs are showing that we are headed toward a great economy. More consumers are purchasing homes on a consistent basis. Retailers are seeing more gains in profits. It appears we are out of the deep water and headed toward the shore. Are we really, or are we merely caught in a whirlpool standing on the dollars of one another? The majority of the gains from this increased spending goes primarily to two areas. The first being the larger companies, while the second being those that tax these large companies. The deciding factor of growth is whether the spent dollars will benefit the spender in the future or was the expenditure was for mere gratification.
Will we nourish ourselves with some turkey or nourish our appetites for toys? A slice of turkey does a body good. A clipped coupon may tame the fire for a minute but make sure the toy is one that lasts.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
