It’s Not a Recession, But It Sure Feels Like It – Stats

Here are some numbers provided by CNNMoney.com in an article called Income, spending gains slow that support my post from yesterday: It’s Not a Recession, But It Sure Feels Like One

Income earned by individuals rose 0.2% in October (pay
increase)

Spending by consumers also gained 0.2% in October (spending)

Prices paid by consumers rose 0.3% (inflation)

Minus volatile food and energy prices there was a 0.2% rise

That left prices outside of food and energy up 1.9% over the
last year (inflation again again)

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
