A Boost To Consumer Confidence

Unleashing Bold Initiatives

I don’t understand the economy. Not before the crisis, and certainly not since. (It’s a good thing I can draw funny pictures.)

It seems like every week I hear in the news some new indicator or report that suggests that something may or may not be the cause or something else that might possibly mean something good could be coming some time. It’s exhausting.

So one day while hearing about the latest consumer confidence numbers, I chose to take aim at statistics and the above cartoon was born.

  1. I am pretty convinced that finance reporters just need something to talk about so they will talk about anything, like consumer confidence rates.

  2. I think this is one of your funniest so far Mark!

  3. Research indicates that customers fail to make online purchases due to lack of consumer confidence. The lack of the personal element and the concern of making a purchase online if there is a problem with the product equates to lost Internet sales.
    This cartoon pretty much tells it all.
    Sometimes, pictures can speak louder than words.
    Thanks for the good laugh!

  4. Haha! The kid is a fast learner of the buzz lingo! 😉
