Consumer Pressure Part I
Growth in our country's economy is greatly dependent on consumer spending -- shopping. Some statistics say it's about two-thirds of our economy rests on buying services and stuff. More stuff. Just about the time you get some new stuff that you are thrilled to have for your very own, a newer, brighter, faster, ultimate for a moment new thing arrives on the market. Some parents evaluate their effectiveness at being a loving parent by measuring how many days and for how many hours they are willing to stand in line with hopes of the UPS truck bringing just enough nuggets of happiness to get one into their eager hands to surprise a child.
