Sa du att kurderna var glada? Jag tyckte du sa kunderna

we'll look at wheter the capture of Saddam Hussein has provided a boost for the holiday shopping season...
Atrios avlyssnade för några dagar sedan, och nu har vi svaret:

AP: Experts hope Saddam's arrest will spur shoppers, 16 dec
"Several experts said the news of Saddam's capture, revealed early Sunday, couldn't be a better holiday gift for merchants during the season's last, crucial stretch.

'Ultimately, in the long run, this is going to put people in better spirits, and we are definitely excited that this has come during the holiday season,' Ellen Tolley, a spokeswoman at the Washington-based National Retail Federation, said Sunday."
Men alla lät sig inte övertygas:
"Despite an economy that some say is on the rebound, consumers continue to be frugal and seem to be waiting even later to do their holiday shopping than they did last year. Although recent economic data have been cheery, personal job security is the most important factor in how much consumers spend."
Den där sista meningen säger mycket om den amerikanska ekonomin. Jag återkommer.
