We continue our series on the economy with a look at consumer behavior.  What is the psychology behind the way we spend money and how does a struggling economy affect that behavior?  We’ll hear from experts who look at how consumers spend and behave in the marketplace, and we’ll hear from an expert on saving money.  We encourage you to write in with your comments on what, if any, spending habits you’ve changed in this struggling economy.

  1. how can there be an entire hour devoted to the consumer’s wallet without once mentioning that the most expensive commodity out of our paychecks goes to taxes? After all the rounds of taxation, from payroll/property/sales/gas tax we pay about 45%. Even more for Charlotte residents. The oil companies were chided, well why not the Charlotte water authority that just hiked their rates to make up for budget shortfalls caused by conservation? We need oil but we need water more. Or the fact that NC will soon raise the gas tax rate because it is indexed to the price of crude?

    Why is it on this show government is always the answer and never the problem. Nowhere is it more evident of government’s overbearing than on our wallets. It doesn’t fit the narrative of this show. There has yet to be a tax that this show thought problematic.

  2. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Floatable!!!!
