"... Aggregate wage and salary income remains a particularly pronounced driver of consumption in the present cycle with credit growth remaining modest and the long-term capacity for consumer re-levering to drive incremental consumption growth remaining constrained.

Aggregate income growth will remain positive over the nearer-term but will continue to slow against steepening comps."
