Fed Policy Notes: Is The Consumer Tapped Out?


Tune into "Power Lunch" today. I'm filling in for the lovely Sue Herera who is on assignment today. Right ahead of the release of the latest minutes from the Fed's policy meeting, Bill Griffeth and I will be talking about just what to expect from Bernanke and the consumer. I'll also be asking the question: Is the consumer tapped out?

Check out this blog Wednesday and Thursday. I'm heading out to theMAGIC Marketplaceconference in Las Vegas, NV tonight. We'll be reporting live from what is one of the biggest conferences for merchants and retail buyers in the country. I'll have the latest trends and details of what I'm hearing on the ground in regard to just how pinched the consumer is feeling right now.
