that's not good news for an economy that relies very heavily on consumer spending. and that lack of confidence in the economy probably explains why sales of big ticket items like washington machines and refrigerators and a lot of other products that are designed to last three years or more, they went down, durable goods ordered declined 1.2% signaling a downturn in the nation's economy. and those weak statistics come just one day before the federal reserve needs to decide whether to raise interest rates. it may force them to keep rates right where they are until the edge of the year. as you mention, guys, using a debit card may be history. a number of big banks like citi, jp morgan and bank of america have tested technology that'll use biometrics to let you access your cash. scanning your eye, a read of your fingerprint, or voice recognition. it'll be interesting times ahead. at least it won't matter if you forget that debit card at home, have a great day.
