Personal Income Up 0.3 Percent, Real Disposable Income Not Quite 0.1 Percent

The BEA's Personal Income and Outlays report shows personal incomes rose 0.3%.

"Real DPI increased less than 0.1 percent in September and Real PCE increased 0.3 percent."

Spending rose 0.5% but the BEA revised August from +0.0% to -0.1% so effectively spending increased 0.4% from the unrevised number.
