There are signs that the economic recovery has actually stalled the holiday shopping season. This season has turned out to be a bit of a bust for the retailers. 2012 saw the worst year over year performance since 2008. Sales on electronics, clothing, and jewelry rose less than a percentage point while analysts had expected growth of at least 3%. Ed Butowsky, wealth manager, financial advisor, and managing partner of Chapwood Investment Management, joins Fox News to examine the weakest sales growth since 2008 and how it will impact the economy as a whole.
