No Bush Boom for Consumers

From Holden:

Yet another economic indicator fails to meet expectations.

U.S. consumers’ attitude toward the economy softened in April, according to a report Friday.

The University of Michigan’s full-month report on consumer sentiment moved to 87.7 in April, down from 92.6 in March, according to media reports. The preliminary April reading had been 88.7. The April reading was under the 89 predicted by economists.
