The NPD Group, Inc. reports 76 percent of consumers are "being careful" about spending on discretionary products and services.
Gosh, this is terrible and so irresponsible! This could be the ultimate weapon of capitalism destruction! Why are the marines digging in the sand while the U.S. are feeling the end of the (consumer) world as we know it and just when their homeland is being threatened by crypto-communists who want to abolish private property? Go home and get them buy stuff, anything, now!
Bon, c'est pour de rire. Prenez donc un cognac ;-).
