Here's a bullish sign for the economy: Wealthy Americans are more optimistic about the economy than any time in the last year, according to the March reading of the Mendelsohn Affluent Barometer. The Barometer studies the lifestyles and spending habits of today’s affluent Americans. 50% of respondents interviewed think they personally will be better off 12 months from now. That's a 12% jump since January and its highest reading in over a year.
