The Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq are all up today, so let's take it one step further. Forget being thrifty this valentine's day. Forget the $5.00 chocolates in the tacky heart box. Forget making a romantic meal. Consumer spending has been steadily increasing, so why not do your part to help the economy to continue on this path?
Your best options:
1. Flowers: the redder, the better.
2. Dinner: the fancier, the better.
2. Jewelry: obviously, the shinier, the better.
Go spend! Your loved ones will thank me. So will the economy. Your wallet may not.
