Middle-Class Spending Expectations Crash, NY Fed Reports

It appears someone forgot to tell The Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) how to 'seasonally-adjust' its data to meet the narrative. In February's survey of consumer expectations, FRBNY reports a collapse in consumer spending growth expectations in January. Even more worrying for President Obama's "middle-class economic" strategy is that the biggest plunge is among the $50-100k income cohort. Not exactly the picture of the 'wreckovery' Americans are supposed to be buying right now...


All those jobs... all that wealth created... all that low-gas-price-tax-cut... and spending expectations collapse...


Across all incomes but mostly in the middle-class!!


Not the "recovery" everyone is being told about?
