July retail numbers are out today. Economists were hoping for “flat as a pancake” and got Less Than Zero instead. Ylan Mui has the fast report, with a picture of somebody’s bored someone just-a shoppin’ at the Kohls. Above, one dude does his part at Express for Men, which, back in the glory days, was called Structure. I think he probably bought a lot of striped dress shirts to wear to the martini bar (or church, same difference).
America is still not shopping.
