Everyone knows there's a relationship between consumer confidence and unemployment changes. Once upon a time, gubment tried to impact consumer confidence by creating jobs. Now, they seem to try to steer it the other way---"everybody, buy, buy buy..." But Mr. Sans-a-job or soon-to-be isn't likely to be in such a buying mood. (And isn't this approach one of the reasons Japan's economy's in the dumper?)
