Numbers & The Economy

What do numbers have to say about the state of the economy? It may depend on which numbers you look at.

With gas near $4.00 a gallon, food prices going through the roof, salaries being slashed and the U.S. labor force losing 60,000 jobs in May...economists say the economy is stagnating.

There's no question many people are being impacted by those numbers. But I found some other interesting numbers to consider when looking at the economy. Try 100-million dollars. That's how much money Sex and the City & Indiana Jones both brought in during their debut weekend.

So what does all of this mean? That's the question I would like you to answer. Analysts say with everything going on in the economy, consumers will keep retrenching...but some numbers would seem indicate otherwise. What do you think?
