That makes sense, but is still kind of mind boggling. Thanks!

I’m no expert and my speculation might be worthless here, but I would imagine the health of a “consumer market” probably correlates with how much money the average person spends on things they want rather than need. Not to say that doesn’t happen outside the US (that’d be quite the ludacris statement), but the US citizens do spend a lot of money of a lot of stuff.
