    In the month of May, consumers' assessment of the economic situation in their cities has improved. The share of those who considered the situation as good went up from 15.5% to 19%. The rate of those who considered it bad grew by a lower rate, from 29.8% to 30.6%.

      Que serÀƒ¡, serÀƒ¡, the future is not with us to say. So keep on buying your flat screen TVs, Cell phones, etc; to boost up the “Consumer Confidence”.The more you buy, the merrier it is.
