What is Consumer Confidence·

Sometimes terms are a little misleading so I thought I would explain what consumer confidence is today. As a preface, I read this regarding the US having the lowest consumer confidence in 2 years.
Consumer confidence is defined as the degree of optimism on the state of the economy that consumers are expressing through their activities of savings and spending. There is a more in-depth article at Wikipedia.
Personally, I always thought rating consumer confidence was stupid. I can tell you that my spending and saving habits are determined by one thing--what I need.
