Spending by rich Americans on luxury goods is set to grow by $26.6 billion in 2011, with the number of affluent families planning to spend more almost doubling in the past three years, a poll found on Friday.
“It is a relief to finally be able to see a significant return of affluent consumers to the luxury marketplace,” Jim Taylor, vice-chairman of Harrison Group, said in a statement.
Yes Jim, it is a relief. I for one am looking forward to my first good night’s sleep in months.
