Interesting. Six months ago the US and world economies received body blows from lockdowns that sent them down by unprecedented amounts.

Then in July retail sales rose to an all-time high to little notice. Then in August they increased again by a larger percentage than they rose in the same period in 2019 to another another all time high. What was the reaction?
- The increase was below expectations
- The increase from January was less than the year before
- We're not flying with eagles
- The increase wasn't as great as it was in June
