                  Consumer 2020: Reading the signs. The report, which
                  was presented at the National Retail Federation in
                  New York on Monday, draws together insights into
                  economic and demographic trends, considerations of
                  finite resources and sustainability, and the
                  increasingly dramatic impact of technology on our
                  daily lives. The report also includes predictions
                  about how consumer attitudes and patterns of
