Defining moments for the consumer

Observation:   An interview with BDO’s Stephen Wyss suggests that consumers have moved to a mindset of moderation, and that more men are doing more shopping.  See the story at Marketing Daily’s website. 

Implications:   What Mr. Wyss describes as a “defining moment” for the consumer matches up very nicely with what I’ve referred to as Reconciliation; people have taken into account that they have a different set of financial realities than they did in 2006.  But they’re not freaking out about it… they’re coping, adjusting, and making things work.
