Consumer Spending, Confidence, Sentiment, and Income, were all up. Employment is up. Home and car sales are booming. Traffic in major cities and gasoline sales are almost back to pre-pandemic levels. Despite the political wrangling, media pessimism, and stock market volatility, the Economy is recovering – even without a vaccine or additional stimulus from Uncle Sam. This is a testimony to the resilience of the US Economy and its Consumers.
