NRF's Monthly Economic Review is a report for NRF and its communities’ members that includes the latest information on industry sales, providing a thorough overview of the current retail and economic climate.
Prepared by NRF chief economist Jack Kleinhenz, the report utilizes recent economic data to analyze the impact of key indicators such as energy costs and the housing market on retail sales growth.
Current Edition – November 2013The economy grew at 2.8 percent in the third quarter (July, August, September), better than the consensus expectation. And while there is still a long way to improve and more job growth is needed to truly spur economic growth and investment, the contours of the consumer landscape remain in relatively good shape, and a strong holiday season could be the springboard the economy needs going into 2014.
