Consumer Confidence Is Now Lower Than During All Recent Financial Crises And Tragedies

One chart stands out in today’s Breakfast with Rosie: the comparison of yesterday’s surprisingly weak Consumer Confidence number with comparable prints taken at financial crises and tragedies of the past such as the October 1987 markets crash, Desert Storm, LTCM, the dot com collapse, September 11, Katrina, and Lehman. No surprise: yesterday’s was the lowest. And as a reminder, the president’s reelection campaign kicks into higher gear in a few months…against the backdrop of the most unhappy popular sentiment in recent years. Just how do QE 3 skeptics believe he will succeed, when still faced with consumer confidence that two years into the “recovery” is lower than during any other previous economic “expansion”, even as congress is about to unleash the most brutal wave of fiscal consolidation (aka austerity) in recent American history.
