That's the same kind of attitude that keeps the economic recovery from happening at a faster rate.
That may be the case for some people, but it isn't the case for just as many. A lot of people these days are focused hard on paying down debt for instance, others will put more money away. If they do spend their money, who says it is going to be spent on something that spurs the local economy? Spending 500$ over the course of the season in a local bar to watch hockey has a more positive effect on the local economy than buying a 500$ made-in-china TV at Wal-Mart, for instance.
