Economists excited by Consumer Dreams: Tales From Normal, Mn.: FICTION
Just got the tweet...that this very morning at Betty Lou's Coffee Shop in Normal, Mn. a distinguished economist from the Twin Cities, Son Won Upchuk, spoke to the small group of bass fishermen there...where the coffee is double strong and the whipped cream is no extra charge....He began his presentation by saying that no matter how pessimistic voters might be today, and no matter the difficulties that consumers are presented with, there is room for hope....he cited a recent poll that stated that even though consumers have not been purchasing more goods...things..products that make the world work for all of us workers...yet they still have dreams of some day buying things when they can some day afford it...and those dreams, while not formerly the realm of economists, have been duly noted....stay tuned as I follow this story.
