Economists are worried that Americans’ newfound sense of thriftiness and saving will hurt the economy and prolong hard times, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.

For years, economists were saying that Americans don’t save enough, that we have the worst savings rate of any industrialized nation, that we couldn’t spell “save” if they spotted us the s, a and v.


Now that we’ve finally gotten message (the hard way) and are saving, they’re saying that we’re hurting the economy.

Hey, economists!  Make up our minds, will ya?
