a rise in orders that is above expectations sounds very good. but... 

if the amount of stuff being shipped around the country is flat, but everything is selling at a much higher price,  then maybe it is not the good news that we think it is.  this represents inflation more than it represents growth.  

as a consumer, i prefer to buy more items at a lower price.  if i buy fewer items at a higher price, then my standard of living went down, not up.
