The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index rises a hair, -35.9 vs. -36.3 last week, and hanging above the -40 level associated with recessions or their aftermath. For those earning more than $100K, the CCI is positive at 3.7. Those earning $15K or less are at -49.8 - sounds awful, but it's the highest since 2007 and 3 points above the long-term average for this group.
