High St Sales Stall As Jobless Total Rises

Click to enlarge photo

Retail sales unexpectedly stalled in August compared to the month before, a sign that consumers are cutting back on spending as unemployment rises.

People out of work or about to lose their jobs spend less and do not buy houses. The tendency is to sell houses and move down or go into a rental.

Why they use the word "unexpected" I have no idea?

Oh wait, they must mean "unexpected according to experts".

Have we learned nothing of "experts" over the last year.

There is nothing 'unexpected' in this recession, just as there will be a steady reduction in retail for as long as people are losing their jobs and livelihoods.

The media are on the side of (in the pocket of...) the politico and aristocrats, so they do their masters bidding and present the negative financial news as 'surprises', attributable to flotsam and ether. Yes, all this black penned media is presented in order to divert our attention from the wholesale a$$ rape being carried out by the entrenched monopolists.

The future looks blight.

Meh.

We appear to be in a bit of a pushmepullyou phase.

Personally I think the only way is going to be down from here, however perhaps they can engineer another boom.

The consumer is tapped out, reducing credit card bills or using them for essentials.

Broadly I agree but "aristocrats"? Bit of a 19th c POV n´est pas?
