Consumer Sentiment

The Leading Indicators author Zachary Karabell takes on consumer sentiment surveys, and casts doubt on their usefulness. “Yet after decades of these surveys, the link between them and actual behavior remains tenuous at best. … People seem quite capable of being anxious about the world and spending money at the same time, and equally capable of feeling confident and saving.”

Join Karabell for a live author chat (sub. req.) tomorrow at noon Eastern.
