National Debt Relief publishes an article on December 1, 2013 to help their readers understand what consumer confidence is all about. The debt relief company aims to provide this information so consumers can use it to help them make financial decisions.
The article is titled “Consumer Confidence Is Down Again: Why Should You Care?” The article begins by discussing how important it is to analyze the American spending lifestyle. Even if the natural reaction of a person is to focus on their personal finances, they have to learn that looking into the national economy will also benefit them.
Of all the statistics and data that is released to measure the current state of the national economy, the article concentrates on consumer confidence. According to the article, consumer confidence is one of the indicators that measures how the Americans view the national economy - whether they are happy or feeling optimistic about it. The data provided is based on opinions but it is still important because it allows professionals to make forecasts about the future spending habits of consumers.
As revealed by the article, the data is officially called the Consumer Confidence Index or CCI. It is a survey done by the Conference Board since 1967. The article discussed that the index describes how consumers are dealing with their finances and also how optimistic they are with the national economy.
National Debt Relief explained that consumer should be interested in this because it helps them make better spending decisions. For instance, the article said that consumer confidence is down in October and November because of the government shutdown and the debt ceiling. This should make consumers cautious about their future spending. If it is down, there must be something wrong and the article encourages consumers to be smart with their spending also. If it is high, then the consumer should be encouraged to spend as they planned.
Specifically, the article explains that the Consumer Confidence Index will help consumers make wiser decisions about investing, spending and saving. To read the whole article, click on this link: http://www.nationaldebtrelief.com/consumer-confidence-care/.
