US con­sumer sen­ti­ment still flat

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

US con­sumer sen­ti­ment kept flat in early Septem­ber as bet­ter eco­nomic prospects were off­set by de­clines in in­come prospects and buy­ing plans. The pre­lim­i­nary read­ing of the con­sumer sen­ti­ment for Septem­ber was 89.8, the same as the level in Au­gust, said the Thom­son Reuters/Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan in­dex of con­sumer sen­ti­ment. “Mod­est gains in the out­look for the na­tional econ­omy have been off­set by small de­clines in in­come prospects as well as buy­ing plans,” said sur­vey di­rec­tor Richard Curtin.
