The University of Michigan has recently released stats after conducting a survey. This survey was carried out to find the confidence of consumers showing the true picture that whether or not customers/end consumers are willing to spend. It is to be noted that the Michigan consumer sentiment index is considered as an important factor in determining the future aspects of the country’s economy.
