Economic Bandage Won’t Help Economy

The sub prime mortgage crisis began and just hit its peak, according to some economic analysts. In my opinion, it has been long in coming. The basic issue was that lenders issued mortgages at low rates that were adjustable. At the low rate, home buyers were able to squeak out payments. But, when the interest rates rose and monthly payments rose, the consumer was unable to pay. Many loans were given to people at the economic margin and anyone with an elementary education should have seen that those consumers could not afford a doubling of their payments. Anyone looking for details can easily Google “mortgage crisis” and get more financial information than you could probably use.

One may also recall the savings and loan crisis of the late 70s and early 80s which, according to some, led to the recession in 1991-92. Again, the approach was a bandage in the form of a bailout. And today, we see another bailout, but not a cure. Economic news has seen the current financial woes spread across the world thanks to globalization. The economic markets have become so entangled that if one suffers, they all are affected. This is

Saving in the Current Economy

That is sometimes a really good thing because it is then that we actually realise what we waste money on. Not to mention that once you begin to cut back you can see that you are still OK and that if you had saved some of that money over the years you might have $30k in saving’s right!:) I know that a lot of us are now forced into being more conscious of what we are doing to the point where people are actually growing their own vegetables and using their mind’s to think outside the box a little more. We have had to do this for Millennia really so it is no different now. See what I mean there? You see that a perceived negative situation can bring about forced change that actually starts us thinking a bit more about being industrious instead of just living or existing each day like a cycle of negative perceived reality of the downturn, which I think is wrong anyway.

What can you do now to cut back? What can you do that might have a profound affect on your next ten years of life? What changes can you make

Commercial Finance

What are these events today? 1) The Mortgage Melt-down. Major financial institutions in the United States are incurring billions of dollars in losses due to the loss in valuation of their investments in mortgage securities. The consequence for borrowers is that these institutions are less inclined to take risks when loaning money for fear of additional losses. And their regulators are demanding that regulated lenders raise their credit standards for borrowers to qualify for a loan. 2) The devaluation of the American dollar versus other world currencies. The U.S. government is spending ginormous amounts of money in excess of what it collect in revenue due to the political compulsion to spend taxpayers’ money, the war in Iraq, Hurricane Katrina (and other natural disasters) and the war on terrorism. This makes our currency less valuable. It makes importing to the U.S. more expensive. The American people have less money to spend on goods and services, and their money buys less than it did a year ago because prices of necessities such as gasoline are higher. 3) The current tendency of Federal and State governments to reduce funding for social services, health services and education because of inadequate revenues; this

Financing to Purchase Property Quickly

While a downturn in the economy can be an ideal time for finding great deals, there can be one issue with doing business under these conditions. The biggest issue is that when the economy isn’t doing well, securing financing in a timely manner can be much more difficult. Because banks and other financial institutions are dealing with problems, they aren’t as willing to quickly give out traditional means of financing. Instead, they act in a conservative manner that causes the process to take much longer. The reason this can be a significant problem is because in order to take advantage of the best deals that come up, you need to be able to quickly get financing. Good deals don’t last forever, so you need financing to help you purchase property quickly.

Fortunately, while many financing options may not be viable for these types of fast deals, there is an option that can work for you. Bridging finance can be used to purchase property quickly.

Personal Economy

Experience tells us that the personal impact of major issues and changes is largely unknown until long after the fact, and it’s never the way it was reported or predicted. So then why so many headlines and articles and commentary? There is a very simple answer to this, but not an answer that’s easily swallowed. Sadly, headlines, hype, and drama sell (and prompt people to react and buy and sell assets, and all kinds of things).

We know that when you get down to it, sales are a core consideration for the media. We just choose not to consider it and overlook this. We’re hopeful that the information is reliable and sound. After all, if the information flowing from books, magazines, TV shows, and newspapers is provided in a way to drive sales numbers, then where can the raw facts be found? And since advertisers believe that I won’t buy or watch unless I see an impact to me or my family, then that’s the way things are spun.

After studying finance from an armchair (especially personal finance) for many years, and reading book after book from many authors on the subject, I then ventured into

Basics of Stock Finance

It is an official and organized market in which the exchanges of foreign transferable securities take place under the guidance of a centralized authority. The operation of the financial market rests on the activities of the share market.

The government earns revenue from stock finance and so it is necessary for the swift functioning of a country and its economy.

The economic growth of a country can be ascertained from the amount of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) that is received by its stock market.
