From Am Ex's release today:

Total revenue fell 16% to $6.0 billion, but consolidated expenses declined 17% to $3.9 billion as the company trimmed jobs, marketing, and rewards costs.

Total card spending fell 11% in the United States from the third quarter of 2008.

Americans continuing to spend less....that means it is impossible that the recession is over since consumers represent the majority of spending in the economy.  Further, we have a massive contraction in spending despite America's thirst to be a welfare society and government's multi trillion dollar and growing deficit.....all disguised under the tranparent vail of stimulous programs.

Pretty soon we will be cut off from unlimited can only borrow when those lending to you think you can pay back......and when that happens, things will get very interesting....especially for welfare dependent banana eating primates.

Until we restructure...stay tuned for more reports like the following...I am sure all of these people will be lining up to buy new houses next week:
