Happy Holidays from ConsumerMiser!!! I wish everyone a fantastic New Year and I have a feeling that 2014 will see the economy continue to strengthen and be a clearly better year from a personal finance standpoint for many compared to past years.
The economy showed nice signs of real improvement with the unemployment rate falling from 7.3% to 7% in November 2013 and jobless claims (actual number of people who have filed for unemployment benefits for the first time) slowing. This is on top of a great stock market that backed up my 2013 predictions (more on that in a blog post coming soon) which at this rate should lead to continued improved consumer confidence in the long term.
I believe that a stronger economy has been gift wrapped this holiday season for 2014. Do you believe that the economy will continue to turn around in 2014?
