Retailers appear to be optimistic about the Christmas holiday season ahead, despite gloom in other sectors about a potentially worsening global economy. Department store operator Kohl's (KSS) says it expects to add 10% more workers this year, while a poll by the Hay Group found that 57% of retailers were keeping holiday hiring at about the same level as a year ago, while about 36% said they planned to hire more. That's up from last year, when just 10% of stores said they would hire more.

  • Yes, all those souls with the Bernanke induced fake stock market gains would go and spend all the money they don't have but seem to have (it is all paper gain unless you realize it but human greed won't allow us to sell either because of the fear of missing out on more gains) on useless gadgets and fancy cars. After all they did it with tech bubble, house equity extraction etc.
