US Consumer "Comfort" Surges At The Fastest Pace Since May 2009 (Driven By Black Women)

Remember the relief? The last 4 weeks have seen Bloomberg's Consumer Comfort index rise at the fastest pace since its "Off The Lows" move from March 2009... The driver, apparently, was women whose comfort rose from 41.6 to 43.0 as men dropped from 48.2 to 47.6; and while "white" people's comfort dropped from 45.3 to 44.5, "black" people surveyed saw a huge jump from 40.3 to 45.9 in their comfort.



With the biggest 2-week spike in "black" comfort since Nov 2007... (when Obama announce Oprah would appear with him on the campaign trail)
