first_img Comments   Share   LONDON (AP) — People around Britain paused in streets and workplaces, in churches and mosques, in railway stations and at the Wimbledon tennis tournament Friday to honor the victims of an Islamic extremist’s rampage at a Tunisian beach resort.Flags were lowered to half-staff at Buckingham Palace and U.K. government buildings to remember those killed in Tunisia’s deadliest attack. Thirty of the 38 dead were British tourists, the youngest a 19-year-old university student and the oldest an 80-year-old retired scientist.

Study Underwater GenXers Holding Down Housing

0 Comments

first_img August 26, 2014 479 Views First-Time Homebuyers Millennials Negative Equity Underwater Zillow 2014-08-26 Scott_Morgan Study: Underwater Gen-Xers Holding Down Housing Much has been said, and even more theorized, about why millennials are not buying homes at the same rate their generational predecessors bought when they were new-generation homebuyers themselves. Zillow, however, may have found a real answer in the fact that generation X and baby boomers are largely underwater.According to Zillow’s latest Negative Equity Report, high negative equity among Gen-X homeowners is causing gridlock in the U.S. housing market.Nearly 43 percent of homeowners between 35 and 49 are underwater on their mortgages. In contrast, only 15 percent of millennial homeowners (those between 20 and 34 years old) and 31 percent of baby boomers (50 to 64 years old) are underwater.This storehouse of negative equity among the two older generations limits millennials from homeownership mainly because of the ripple effect created when underwater homeowners have trouble listing their properties for sale: baby boomers may not be able to find move-up buyers for their homes because Gen-Xers are stuck with troubled mortgages, Zillow reported. In turn, millennials can’t move into the more affordable starter homes currently occupied by Gen Xers. In other words, the very types of houses young first-time buyers would be most able to afford are not hitting the market, and millennials are increasingly getting priced out.Zillow found that among all homes with a mortgage nationwide, 28 percent that are valued within the bottom third of home values were underwater in the second quarter. This compares to about 16 percent of homes in the middle tier and 9 percent in the top tier.All ages combined, more than a third of homeowners with a mortgage are effectively underwater and unable to sell their homes for enough profit to comfortably, meet expenses related to selling, and afford a down payment on a new home, the report stated.Zillow’s chief economist, Stan Humphries, said the recession is largely to blame, having most crippled the homes the majority of Gen-X bought.”On the surface, the housing recession did not overtly impact millennials’ housing wealth to the degree it did Generation X and the Baby Boomers,” Humphries said. “Most millennials were likely too young to have purchased a home during the bubble years. But as this huge generation begins to consider buying homes, they’re entering a market still very much in recovery and far from anyone’s definition of normal.”Because so many homes are stuck in negative equity or are effectively underwater, the inventory of homes for sale is severely constrained, Humphries said. This leads to increased competition for homes and the frank reality that many millennials are simply too young and too new to the workforce to have saved up significant money to compete with more established older buyers.”The reality is, negative equity is part of the new normal,” Humphries said. “Finding creative solutions to keep homes affordable, available, and accessible to [millennials] will be critical going forward.”center_img in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Sharelast_img read more

Is the Brexit Effect Wearing Off for the Mortgage Industry

first_img August 22, 2016 597 Views Mortgage Rates Mortgage Refinances 2016-08-22 Seth Welborn Share Is the ‘Brexit’ Effect Wearing Off for the Mortgage Industry?center_img in Daily Dose, News, Origination With mortgage interest rates spending the last eight months below 4 percent and hovering just above historic lows for the last few weeks, one would think the environment is great to refinance a mortgage.Following an initial spike in mortgage refinances after June’s Brexit vote, however, the data seems to indicate that fewer borrowers are taking advantage of the low interest rates. Black Knight Financial Services’ First Look at Mortgage Data for July 2016, released on Monday, indicated that the “Brexit” effect may have worn off. Or many borrowers may not want to refinance—or may not be aware of the current near-record low mortgage rates.Black Knight reported in the July 2016 First Look that the population of borrowers eligible to refinance their mortgage has swelled to 8.7 million and the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is below 3.5 percent, but the monthly prepayment rate—historically a good indicator of refinance activity—declined by 12 percent from June to July down to 1.26 percent (and fell by 1 percent over-the-year).“We’ve not only seen this scenario post-Brexit, but throughout much of 2016,” said Ben Graboske, Executive Vice President of Black Knight Data & Analytics. “Since February, interest rates have remained below 2015 levels—and there have been more borrowers who could both qualify for and benefit from refinancing—yet refinance origination volumes have trailed 2015 levels in every month so far this year. While there are undoubtedly a large number of borrowers who are taking advantage of today’s historically low interest rates, there also appears to be a growing population who are either uninterested, or simply unaware of the refinance opportunities in the market.”The First Look also reported an uptick in mortgage delinquencies in July of nearly 5 percent, up to 4.5 percent, likely due to the fact that July ended on a Sunday and payments made on the last two days of the month cannot be financed until the following month. Hence, Black Knight expects a decline in mortgage delinquencies in August.Click here to view Black Knight’s entire First Look at Mortgage Data for July 2016.last_img read more

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians watches

0 Comments

first_imgArizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians watches his team run drills during a team practice, Tuesday, May 17, 2016, in Tempe, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York) SAN DIEGO — Just before the Arizona Cardinals began their joint practice with the San Diego Chargers, they learned their head coach, Bruce Arians, would not be joining them on the field.“I didn’t hear until we were breaking it down right before practice started,” defensive lineman Calais Campbell said.The 63-year-old coach was taken to a local hospital after complaining to the training staff about stomach pain. As of Tuesday night, word is he will remain hospitalized overnight, with a further update on his condition expected Wednesday. Shipley, unfortunately, has been in this sort of situation before. A member of the Colts in 2012, he was there when head coach Chuck Pagano had to leave the team due to leukemia. That led to Arians taking over as the interim head coach and then, after Pagano returned, Arians ended up missing a playoff game due to what was described as an inner ear infection or virus.While not an ideal situation in any way, Shipley has a first-hand look at how a team has to respond. At the same time, he also has some insight into how this will hopefully play out.“Coach is a fighter, there’s no doubt about that,” he said. “I’ve been around it before. I saw him go down, I think it was before we played the Ravens in the quarterfinals or whatever it was, and he was good to go a day or two later. So he’ll be fine, and we went out and good work on his behalf.” “When B.A.’s here, he gets everyone ready, keeps everyone engaged in the practice, keeps the intensity up,” running back David Johnson said. “When everyone’s getting a little lackadaisical, he gets the intensity up, gets the guys back moving.”Tuesday night’s Arians-less practice did not seem to lack energy on either side, though. Had you not known the head coach wasn’t around, you wouldn’t have picked up on that based on the team’s attitude and performance.Had it not been for an in-stadium announcement by the P.A. announcer — which led to supportive applause from the fans in attendance — it’s possible no one would have even realized the two-time AP Coach of the Year was absent.That’s exactly how Arians would want it to be, making sure both he and the team used the night to get better. The idea of pushing their coach’s health to the backburner may seem like a strange concept, but for football teams, the show must go on.“Our job’s different,” center A.Q. Shipley said. “We always have to keep pushing forward regardless of circumstances. If somebody gets hurt in practice, on the field,  you move the drill up 10 yards. So, it’s kind of one of those things, we keep him in your prayers, but he’s the coach of this team and he wants us to get good work today and that’s what we did.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Even without Arians, practice went on as planned. As you could expect, though, the head coach was on the players’ minds.Campbell said the team said a quick prayer for Arians after the doctors told them what was going on, adding that it “was definitely a tough situation” Tuesday night.How could it not be?Arians is one of the most beloved coaches in the game, and while the team had capable coordinators and assistants to pick up the slack, going through a practice knowing the boss is not well adds a dark cloud to what was supposed to be an enjoyable evening of football.“Just praying for him,” Campbell said. “In this game, sometimes you kind of forget that this is normal life, what people are going through you just want to make sure they’re healthy and taking care of themselves.“With B.A., everybody has so much love for him; he’s our leader and so we really need him. Whatever he’s going through, we just wish him a speedy recovery.”Not surprisingly, after practice the players did not offer much in the way of details — odds are greater that they did not know rather than they were unwilling to share — but there was an admission that things were not the same without Arians.

Teeny Tiny Fine Print That Can Allow Sexual Harassment Claims to Go UnheardElizabeth DiasEliana DocktermanOct 21 2016IdeasElizabeth Dias is a TIME correspondent covering politics and religionEliana Dockterman is a staff writer for TIME in New York CityGretchen Carlson is both extraordinary—in her cultural visibility in her multimillion-dollar career in her personal accomplishments—and utterly ordinary When she filed a lawsuit in July alleging sexual harassment during her tenure at Fox News she became part of a disturbing statistic: at least 25% of American women say they have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace according to a 2016 report from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission She also faced an obstacle that blocks an untold lot of them: an arbitration clause in her employment contractRelatedUSA $215 Million Settlement Proposed in Alleged USC Gynecologist AbuseUSA $215 Million Settlement Proposed in Alleged USC Gynecologist AbuseThere is no reliable data on how many Americans have ceded their rights to a court hearing through arbitration clauses; one academic study estimates using projections based on narrow data sets that as many as a quarter of nonunionized American workers may be subject to the restrictions Arbitration clauses are found not only in multimillion-dollar contracts like Carlson’s but also in the most mundane hiring materials—form contracts even employee handbooks—that have been given to employees at Anheuser-Busch or Applebee’s or some editors at TIMECarlson cleverly navigated her own clause: she sued Roger Ailes the co-founder CEO and chairman of Fox not the company itself Her suit alleged that Ailes "unlawfully retaliated against Carlson and sabotaged her career because she refused his sexual advances and complained about severe and pervasive sexual harassment" As soon as the case was public Ailes’ lawyers tried to compel it into arbitration arguing that Carlson had broken the terms of her contract which stipulated that any legal disputes be brought not in court but in arbitration proceedings Ailes denied wrongdoing and he and Carlson agreed on a confidential settlement "As we’ve made clear there’s absolutely no room anywhere at our company for behavior that disrespects women or contributes to an uncomfortable work environment" 21st Century Fox said in a statement "Within hours of the first public complaint raising an issue at Fox News we commenced an investigation and less than two weeks after that investigation began the Chairman and CEO of Fox News departed"This August in response to Carlson’s case Democratic US Senators Richard Blumenthal Al Franken and Dick Durbin wrote to four major arbitration businesses requesting information on employment disputes and cases involving sexual harassment that have been heard in secret by arbitrators Questions included how many sexual-harassment lawsuits have been referred to binding arbitration through their organizations and how many cases involved confidentiality clauses similar to Carlson’s regardless of the cause of action Three of the four arbitration organizations responded The American Arbitration Association one of the largest businesses (and a not-for-profit) noted that its data was not comprehensive and added that only 4% of employment-plan cases in 2014 involved sexual-harassment issues For Blumenthal that information was not adequateREAD: Gretchen Carlson’s Next Fight"The responses give us no informative or comprehensive view of how prevalent the problem is" he says "It could be very substantial with illegal or dangerous activity going unreported or underreported"Last year Franken reintroduced the Arbitration Fairness Act which would invalidate current arbitration clauses in employment consumer civil rights and antitrust claims Under this measure a claimant alleging sexual harassment who is subject to an arbitration mandate could not be forced to resolve the dispute that way This year Senator Patrick Leahy followed it up with the Restoring Statutory Rights Act which says no arbitration agreement can make you waive a statutory right"Clearly these clauses can be misused and silence can be a means for abusers to conceal misconduct" says Blumenthal who refers to Carlson’s case as a teaching moment for the nation "If Ms Carlson had adhered strictly to the terms of her employment contract her case would have remained a secret forever"Arbitration clauses are easy to miss—you probably have agreed to one at some point whether at your job or at your bank They can be just a few short words but their impact is vast These clauses push disputes between parties to a system in which an arbitrator (sometimes a retired judge) is hired to adjudicate the matter Some contracts prohibit claimants from speaking about the claims which in harassment cases could leave other victims in the dark And you don’t necessarily have to sign on a dotted line to agree to one—Netflix subscribers agree to arbitration in the terms of use before picking a movie; workers at Macy’s and Raymour & Flanigan have sued over arbitration clauses that the companies said they agreed to by virtue of accepting employment at the company Even at-will employees can be compelled into arbitration through clauses in employee materials"You don’t necessarily have to have signed anything to be bound by it" says Katherine Stone a law professor at UCLA "It might just be in the materials that were given to you when you took the job the same materials that told you where your parking space is"Research by Stone and Cornell law professor Alexander Colvin shows that payouts in arbitration are much smaller than the damages plaintiffs might receive in court—so small that lawyers are reluctant to take the cases Carlson’s reported $20 million settlement is far more than most could hope to win—again because of the confidentiality statistics are hard to come by but a 2007 Chicago-wide survey put median sexual-harassment settlements at roughly $30000; a national study from a researcher at Columbia University in 2006 found employees who take their cases to trial win on average $217000RelatedLawI Was a Sex-Crimes Prosecutor Here’s Why ‘He Said She Said’ Is a MythLawI Was a Sex-Crimes Prosecutor Here’s Why ‘He Said She Said’ Is a Myth"Mandatory arbitration clauses in negotiating away the civil rights of an individual are just a bad idea" says Anita Hill now an antidiscrimination professor at Brandeis University "What we’re talking about here with harassment is a civil rights violation Our policy is driven from the point of view of the people the men who are more powerful and engaging in abusive behavior Women are skeptical coming forward because they don’t trust the procedures"In 1991 Hill told a Senate committee that Clarence Thomas—the man they were considering confirming to the Supreme Court who had been her former boss including at the EEOC—had asked her "Who has put pubic hair on my Coke" Thomas was of course confirmed but Hill’s testimony marked a watershed moment for sexual-harassment awareness: the following year reports of sexual harassment filed with the EEOC shot up from 3349 to 5607Yet it may actually be getting harder for employees to take sexual-harassment complaints to court "Anecdotally speaking the use of arbitration agreements from our perspective is increasing" says Peggy Mastroianni legal counsel at the EEOC Many women rationalize that it’s not worth the risk to bring cases forward "The biggest problem in many of these cases is fear of retaliation fear of more harassment" says Mastroianni "If they leave their company usually they want to continue working in the same industry but they fear they’ll be seen as litigious or difficult" As Jean Sternlight director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the University of Nevada Las Vegas points out privacy is one benefit of arbitration: an employee dealing with sexual harassment "might prefer to have it handled in a private way and arbitration could give them that privacy"Those who do want to file complaints face a series of legal hurdles Eighty-three percent of those who file sexual-harassment claims with the EEOC are women some of whom presumably want not only to be free of it and compensated but also to fundamentally change the place where they work Employers can be liable for quid pro quo sexual harassment perpetrated by supervisors and for supervisors or co-workers who create a hostile work environment—but a 2013 Supreme Court decision narrowed the definition of supervisor to someone who can hire fire or significantly change the responsibilities of the person being harassed"When you take a job you don’t think you’re going to end up suing your employer" says Stone "Any employer that is big enough will be advised to put an arbitration clause into their employment materials and employees will not be able to bring a class-action suit It’d basically be malpractice not to advise that""The EEOC’s stance has always been that mandatory arbitration of employment discrimination is bad: the secrecy the lack of precedent" says the EEOC’s Mastroianni "We litigated this issue in a number of cases that we lost"The arbitration system has expanded in scope over the past decade for what many argue are good reasons Corporations often maintain that circumventing court systems reduces litigation costs allows more-limited discovery and yields a swifter result for both parties "Most of the controversy in these employment cases often have to do with does the employee have a choice" says Chris Poole CEO of the arbitration company JAMS "We don’t really have a dog in that fight All we can do is try to do everything to level the playing field" That includes asking the employer to pay the bulk of the cost of arbitration and allowing the employee to help choose the arbitrator "Our entire business depends on neutrality" he adds "It’s our religion"When asked about Ailes’ role in the clause in Carlson’s contract Susan Estrich a lawyer for Ailes says he "does not get into the weeds of contracts" Arbitration clauses she adds "have become increasingly standard not just in employment contracts but across the board My gynecologist was the last of my doctors to require them in order to keep his insurance rates from skyrocketing The reason doesn’t have to do with sexual harassment and secrecy; it’s because litigation is so expensive that no one can afford it and it drives insurance costs through the roof"RelatedLawWhy Trump Couldn’t Really Stop the Mueller Investigation—Even if He Fired RosensteinLawWhy Trump Couldn’t Really Stop the Mueller Investigation—Even if He Fired RosensteinEmployers have also seen arbitration as a way to cut down on class-action and employment disputes State and federal rulings are mixed The Supreme Court provided the means for businesses to prevent class-action suits Critics say the attempt to stop arbitration’s use is a move in support of trial lawyers who have been large Democratic supporters "Arbitration denies personal-injury lawyers opportunities to score even more giant contingency fees" American Tort Reform Association spokesman Darren McKinney says "For years those lawyers have used sympathetic groups—including the elderly service veterans and crime victims—to press lawmakers for statutory exceptions to the Federal Arbitration Act Having largely failed with Congress the lawsuit industry has more recently turned its lobbying focus to regulatory agencies and certain state legislatures where its reliably generous campaign contributions seem to be more appreciated"But the trend of moving cases into confidential arbitration cases has troubled many Carlson Leahy and Blumenthal are part of a tide The Obama Administration has tried to curb the arbitration boom without Congress Last month a Department of Health and Human Services agency barred nursing homes that receive federal funding from mandating that residents resolve disputes in arbitration In May the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) proposed a rule to prevent banks and credit-card companies from using arbitration clauses with consumers In June the Department of Education proposed to protect students from arbitration clauses buried in enrollment agreementsOn the presidential campaign trail Hillary Clinton has attacked the use of arbitration clauses She supported the CFPB’s proposed rule in May In early October Clinton promised to carry on the Obama Administration’s efforts and order agencies "to curb the overuse of harmful forced-arbitration clauses" Donald Trump has been quiet on the issue Employment contracts for Trump’s campaign have included binding arbitration clauses that can turn any disputes over to the American Arbitration Association instead of a court system A spokesperson for the Clinton campaign said that Clinton campaign contracts do not include arbitration clauses or referencesEven if Clinton wins in November Democrats will likely not be able to hold a hearing on arbitration unless they win back the Senate and even then Republicans are likely to continue to control the House Change outside of Congress is also difficult given federal case-law trends—the change for nursing homes came after Leahy held regular hearings on the use of arbitration clauses when he chaired the Senate Judiciary CommitteeBut Blumenthal and his colleagues are not backing down "Gretchen Carlson is woman of great courage and moral fiber and personal strength and hopefully her example will help support legislation to protect others" he saysThe conversation around harassment sexual assault and sexism has gone from a whisper to a roar—on campuses where women have persuaded the White House to investigate Title IX mishandlings in war zones where servicewomen appealed to Senators for a new process to adjudicate cases of rape and on social media where campaigns like the one started by Kelly Oxford have spurred women to share their stories of assault and harassmentBut Carlson’s story and the systemic problems it highlights underscores the challenges women still face "I have a hard time reconciling the current climate for women with the progress we’ve tried to make But if people thought this was going to be resolved in 25 years of talking about sexual harassment that’s not going to happen" says Hill "These things are deeply embedded in our brains and baked into the way we do things"By Charu Bahri Mount Abu: Harsimranjit Brar 26 has an unforgettable childhood memory of his family’s fields in Fatuhi Khera a village in Punjab’s Sri Muktsar Sahib district Just before harvest it would be a sea of white fluff Brar’s father a seasoned farmer used to cultivate cotton on a 40-acre plot every kharif (monsoon) season All that changed after a deluge in 2009 submerged their land under 4-5 feet of water wiping out their cotton crop recalled Brar now an inspector with the Punjab Agro Foodgrains Corporation Limited Three days of rain damaged the cotton crop in 60-70 villages of the around 238 villages in the district It took months for the standing water to percolate into the saturated ground "The damage to our land was so substantial that it washed out the possibility of growing any crops in 2010" he said To avoid a repeat of the disaster in 2011 Brar’s father and elder brother decided to grow paddy–parmal as it is called in Punjab–on 9 acres of their land because paddy can withstand water-logging In Fatuhi Khera Punjab crop losses following a deluge in 2009 prompted a switch from growing cotton to paddy in 75% of the acreage that was earlier under cotton Since paddy withstands water logging better than cotton farmers see its cultivation as a means to protect their income against losses emanating from excessive rainfall during the monsoon Image Courtesy: Harsimranjit Brar The family has now switched to paddy on 38 of 40 acres In the district itself 75 percent of the acreage dedicated to cotton is now used for paddy Brar reckoned "Monsoon rainfall used to be spread across the season but we had started to see more downpours followed by dry spells” Brar said “Downpours invariably led to water-logging We strongly felt we needed to de-risk our income" The farmers of Sri Muktsar district chose to play it safe; elsewhere farmers might choose to deal with climate change differently In semi-arid regions for example "farmers adopt more risky cash crops such as cotton instead of more resilient dryland cereals or pulses in the anticipation of higher returns but at a very high risk of failure" said Anthony Whitbread a research programme director at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) To withstand climate change farmers need adequate support by way of know-how and practical assistance for adoption of drought- or heat-tolerant crop varieties (cultivars) soil and water conservation technologies said Anthony Whitbread a research programme director at ICRISAT ICRISAT For instance this 2010 ICRISAT study examined a change in the cropping pattern in Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra–from cereal crops (except maize) to pulses and other cash crops such as sugarcane and cotton India is one of the world’s most vulnerable regions to climate change It has increased the frequency of downpours as well as the gaps between rainy days during the monsoon as IndiaSpend reported in January 2018 and February 2018 Extreme rainfall shocks could reduce farmer incomes in the kharif and rabi seasons by 137 percent and 55 percent according to the Economic Survey 2017-18 To reduce the impact of these shocks and to double farmer incomes as the government wants to the following are vital according to Whitbread: "adequate support by way of know-how and practical assistance for adoption of drought- or heat-tolerant crop varieties (cultivars) soil and water conservation technologies changing sowing dates and so on" Farmers’ observations mirror scientific predictions about climate change In Punjab 97

their Ramadan prayers have been tinged with memories of their lost family members "It was a noble cause and that is something that is important" Khan says of the inspiration for the trip that led to Haris’ death Haris was the youngest of the Sulemans’ three children all of whom were born in the US after the family emigrated from Pakistan Khan says Haris was a free spirit and a popular student at Plainfield High School where he was soon to begin his senior year Haris played varsity soccer and was "a joker on the bus" according to Khan But he was serious about flying Haris began flying with his father when he was just eight years old and received his pilot’s license in June The around-the-world trip was planned as a fundraiser for the Citizens Foundation a nonprofit that builds schools in Pakistan The duo went to great lengths to prepare simulating plane crashes in water and taking survival courses Babar had mapped the trip so they would be close to major shipping lanes if the plane crashed thinking it would give them a better chance of being rescued "They knew the perils and had been training" Khan says Babar an engineer "had this love for flying that his son took upon him and carried on" During the trip Haris occasionally blogged for the Huffington Post On July 16 he wrote a piece explaining why the spirit of the trip was more important than its risks: A lot of people have expressed concern that the journey that my father and I have set out on is a risky venture Some have even questioned why we would put ourselves through such a challenge I simply ask them: Why did Edmund Hillary Climb Mt Everest Why did Christopher Columbus discover America Why did Marco Polo travel to China There is a part of everyone that craves discovery and adventure and we have chosen to live out this craving Breaking out of the routine of day to day life requires bravery in more than one form Adventure for the sake of a good cause is a Suleman family tradition Khan says: While in the Peace Corps Haris older brother climbed Mount Kilamanjaro for charity despite breaking his hand shortly before the ascent Khan who became close to the Suleman family through their childrens friendships says he was receiving regular updates from them during the trip He opened his last email from Babar which included pictures of Pakistani children at schools built with funds from the Citizens Foundation on Wednesday morning "While I was sharing those memories with others" Khan says quietly "at that time the accident had already happened" Write to Katy Steinmetz at katysteinmetz@timecomIt wasnt supposed to go like this With gas prices plummeting economists and analysts who study consumer spending were gleeful This would be the shot in the arm the economy needed they predicted With that money in their pockets instead of their tanks Americans would be more confident and increase their spending on discretionary purchases But thats not what happened Instead families are hanging onto that extra money stashing it in the bank or paying down their debts "We havent seen the extra savings from lower gas prices translate into additional discretionary consumer spending" MasterCard CEO Ajay Banga said in a recent conference call "I dont think the US consumer knows whether to expect this to be sticking around or not" Judging by our shopping behavior were still extra-sensitive when it comes to gas prices In a recent survey the National Association of Convenience Stores finds that 71% of people say price is the most important factor when they buy gas Thats five percentage points higher than last year even though the average price of gas has dropped by a dollar since the earlier survey was conducted Were fixated on the price of gas even when its not logical More than 10% of people say theyd drive 10 minutes out of their way to save a nickel per gallon even though youd need to buy at least 22 gallons just to break even considering the cost of the gas youll burn to get to the cheaper station That’s because even more than five years after it officially ended we’re still haunted by the Great Recession "The pain of the recession remains fresh in the minds of many Americans" the Wall Street Journal says Compared to six months ago the average consumer has about $60 that theyre not spending on gas each month the newspaper says pointing out that this is more money than many people have gotten in raises in recent years But even though the holidays typically bring a surge in spending new Commerce Department data shows that consumer spending actually fell slightly in December This is one of those situations where whats good for consumers individually and whats good for the economy overall are different While its smart for people to set aside a cash cushion and pay down debts its better for the economy if we take that extra money were not spending on gas and use it on other purchases Economists are still hoping that cheaper gas will coax people to spend more in the coming months provided prices at the pump stay low "This all bodes well for consumption growth in early 2015” economist Paul Diggle tells the New York Times and MasterCards Banga said another few months of lower gas prices might give consumers the confidence they need to start spending those savings Contact us at editors@timecom Now," an IT official
