Are you feeling confident in economy?
Barack Obama is enjoying a surge in support in the presidential campaign, according to recent polls. Perhaps that’s in part because a new survey shows that Americans are more confident in the economy than they have been in seven months.
Consumer confidence rose Tuesday to its highest level since February because of expectations that hiring will soon pick up, The Associated Press reported.
Housing prices have been rising steadily. The stock market has been gaining ground the past year, as well.
What about you? As a consumer, are you feeling more confident? Are you ready to loosen the purse strings as we approach the Christmas shopping season? Are you optimistic that your next raise or that new job is in your near future?
