Okay, so the headline reads that it is so wonderful that consumers spent through the roof in January. I guess I'm just not conservative enough to believe that spending more than you take in indefinitely is viable. I understand buying now at a bargain stuff you'd buy soon anyway for maybe a higher price, but at some point the buying has to stop and the paying start, except I suppose if you're smarter than those of us in the "reality-based community."
