Somebody is spending, but who? This chart shows YOY customs duties and excise taxes which are a fairly good surrogate for retail spending.

However, here's a question: if the federal government buys a fleet of new Chevy Volts (the ones that burn up, LOL), do they pay excise taxes?

The combination of Higher Energy, Higher Dollar, Higher Commodities, and the September 15 California Tax on the internet has caused a SURGE in amazon orders to beat the increase…and of course Obama's playing with the numbers. Look at the huge drop in employment a year ago in October. Obama knows how the numbers work a year ahead, and of course, where do auto parts come from…electronic components come from Asia…for starters…and foreign car assemblies do buy foreign parts.
