I was riding into work today and the DJ on the radio was going crazy over the recent Brittany Spears concert. She stated that this could be the "greatest comeback ever!". I was thinking "better than the Bills over the Oilers in 1993????
Pop culture provides some great insight into the state of mass social mood. Her meltdown last year aligned very well with the downturn of the contraction phase. Maybe this recent rebound will align with the last bear market rally. The title "CIRCUS" might be very timely and appropriate. I would say that if Brittany is still at the top of the charts, this contraction has quite a ways to go. At the bottom, pop divas won't be at the forefront of our consciousness. Oops, I did it again!
