Xmas Shopping
I don't know about you, but I've been hearing on the radio and TeeVee all about the holiday shopping rush, and what a great year it is turning out to be for retailers! Weeee.


It's a lie. WalMart has reported that same store/time comparisons are less than last year for the first time in history. Plus, Barry puts the media swallowed message of the retailers industry to the test. Of course the media swallowed the message exactly as the retailers had hoped without doing any, you know, actual reporting.

Xmas shopping is thus far sluggish. Look to price cutting soon.
