    Briton......ecomomists here use every excuse they can come up. Sales are down becasue it is too cold to go's too hot to leave the pool or air conditioning.

    Just like gas prices. “gas prices are spiking because of the last minute holiday rush”.....“gas prices are increasing because no one is travelling and the need to increase margins”. Let's not forget...........Hurricane season has a arrives and a cloud formation started off the African coast in the Eastern Atlantic. This is causing a flurry of activity in the Carribbean basin and prices have started to rise”.

    Economist are like lawyers and my favorites are the ones who do not use oxygen.
