If Alexander Hamilton were alive today, he’d be spinning in his grave. Well, that’s what Yogi Berra might say. The nation’s first Treasury Secretary will lose his place on the ten-dollar bill if the current holder of that office has his way, and that would be upsetting to anyone; particularly a Founding Father who lost his life in a duel with that no-good Aaron Burr. Regardless of whose likeness adorns our currency these days, Americans have been spending more of it. We learned this week that Personal Spending rose by .9% in May, and if that still doesn’t sound like a lot, it was a whole lot better than April’s .1% increase. Helping to spur this spending uptick was the .5% rise in Personal Income. This is good news for Janet Yellen et al., who have been lamenting the absence of growth in the amount of money that people make and the presence of growth in the amount they haven’t been spending. Could things be turning around for the consumer?
