Rise In Traveling Hookers, Depressed Gambling, Booze Sales Bode Poorly For US Economy





If you’re inclined to agree with the notion that trends in cash-based businesses are a good leading indicator when it comes to assessing where consumer spending (and thus the US economy) is headed going forward, you should expect the string of retail sales misses to continue because as Andrew Zatlin notes, spending on hookers, booze, and gambling is now sliding, forcing some escorts to take their show on the road.

If one compares the history of the Chinese and US housing bubbles, one observes that it was when US housing had dropped by about 6% following their all time highs in November 2005, that the US entered a recession.

For the first time in Australia, every single one of the 47 bidders offered a price so high that it implies a negative interest rate.
