If you want to help the US economy, don't hold back on Xmas shopping.

i've seen many posts recently about the stock market, don't sell stocks, buy stocks, drive up the market.

good sentiments but not necessary. nothing will be more important for our economy over the short run then holiday shopping. for most retailers the holiday season makes or breaks them for the year. don't hold back. i know none of us feel like celebrating this season, but don't hold back on holiday shopping, it is the single strongest indicator of economic health. forget about the stock market none of us have enough money to make any kind of impact there, even all together, but our holiday shopping will be VERY IMPORTANT.
