Top 1% Got 93% of Income Growth as Rich-Poor Gap Widened By Peter Robison - Oct 2, 2012 Since 2009, Anita Reyes’ wages have been as frozen as Lake Minnetonka in January. While the U.S. economy was recovering from the Great Recession, Reyes, 52, a casino dealer from Minneapolis, was dining on $1.67 cans of soup and searching for a way to keep her house, which was foreclosed on last October. “I went backwards,” Reyes said. “Two years ago, three years ago, I didn’t know I’d be looking at being homeless.” Stephen Hemsley’s salary has been frozen too. His income hasn’t. The chief executive officer of Minnetonka, Minnesota-based ...

Earnings for the biggest crude tankers will be 25 percent lower next year than previously estimated as increased U.S. shale-oil production curbs imports into the country, DNB ASA said. Very large crude carriers will earn $21,000 a day on average in 2013 and $22,000 in the following year, 24 percent below its prior estimate, the Oslo-based bank said in a report dated Sept. 27. Smaller Suezmax vessels will bring in $18,000 daily next year, a 25 percent reduction. “U.S. seaborne imports of crude oil are set to be dramatically reduced in the coming years, mainly due to the large expected increase in domestic crude production,” analysts including Nicolay Dyvik said. “All else ...

NEW YORK | Mon Oct 1, 2012 11:37am EDT (Reuters) - U.S. stocks advanced on Monday after a surprise expansion in U.S. manufacturing last month eased concerns about the economy and offset a gloomier outlook in Asia and Europe. U.S. manufacturing expanded in September for the first time since May as new orders and employment picked up, an Institute for Supply Management report showed. Financial stocks led the market's advance with Goldman Sachs Group (GS.N) up 4 percent at $118.28 after the weekly Barron's said Goldman shares could rise at least 25 percent in the next year as capital markets improve. The ISM's index rose to 51.5 from 49.6 in August, topping expectations for a ...

Consumer Sentiment Gains To Four-Month High In September

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Consumer sentiment rose to its highest level in four months in September as Americans saw better prospects for the job market and economy, a survey released on Friday showed. The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's final reading on consumer sentiment rose to 78.3 from 74.3 in August, the highest level since May. Still, it was shy of economists' forecasts for 79, according to a Reuters poll, and gave up some of the advance seen in September's preliminary reading when the index climbed to 79.2. Consumer expectations improved strongly, rising to 73.5 from 65.1, also the highest since May. More consumers expected the unemployment rate to fall than to ...

Sep 28, 2012 - 9:00 AM by Ken Tumin If you had problems accessing your bank's website this week, you're not alone. Several major banks were hit this week with denial-of-service attacks which can make websites inaccessible. The latest bank to be hit was PNC Bank. Yesterday evening PNC had a "repair in progress" message on its home page. When I tried to access pnc.com this morning, I wasn't able to access anything. I've been reporting on these issues in this forum thread when rumors first began about a cyberattack. As you might expect, banks kept quiet in reporting the cyberattack. But as the website outages grew, it became apparent that this was a sophisticated ...

First-time jobless claims fell sharply last week, a positive sign in the job market's slow recovery. Those filing for unemployment benefits fell 26,000 to a u a seasonally adjusted 359,000, the best showing in more than two months, the Labor Department reported Thursday. The four-week moving average, which is a better indicator of the job market's trend, also dropped, down 4,500 to to 374,000, after rising for six weeks. The figure is finally back below the 375,000 economists argue reflects a healthier job market and a hiring pace by employers that is fast enough to bring down the unemployment rate, which now sits at 8.1 percent. Unemployment has remained stuck above 8 percent ...

Corn supplies in the U.S., the world’s biggest grower and exporter, are dropping below last year’s domestic usage for just the third time in half a century after a Midwest drought damaged crops from Ohio to Nebraska. Production this year plus inventories before the harvest will reach 11.872 billion bushels, less than the 12.33 billion consumed or exported last year, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data and a Bloomberg survey of 29 analysts. Only twice since 1960 has supply failed to exceed usage from the previous year, and the last time was in 1996. The USDA will update its inventory tally tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. in Washington.

Factory Job Gains Under Obama Best Since Clinton: BGOV Barometer

In an election focused on jobs, President Barack Obama can boast of crossing one milestone: the longest stretch of employment gains in manufacturing in almost two decades. The BGOV Barometer shows U.S. factory positions have grown since early 2010, arresting a slide that began toward the end of the 1990s. It’s the best showing since the era of Bill Clinton, the only president in the last 30 years to leave office with more factory jobs than when he began. “The gain in manufacturing jobs is certainly helpful, it is one way to show we’re moving forward,” said Terry Madonna, a political science professor and director of the Franklin & Marshall College poll in ...

Purchases of new U.S. homes hovered in August near a two-year high, adding to signs that the housing market is on the way to recovery. Sales fell 0.3 percent to a 373,000 annual pace following a revised 374,000 rate in July that was higher than previously estimated and the strongest since April 2010, figures from the Commerce Department showed today in Washington. The median estimate of 71 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a rise to 380,000. Record-low borrowing costs continue to attract buyers, lifting demand for homebuilders, while a drop in the supply of foreclosed homes is easing downward pressure on prices. Federal Reserve policy makers have targeted the housing market with ...

NEW YORK, N.Y. - U.S. consumer confidence jumped this month to the highest level since February, bolstered by a brighter hiring outlook. The Conference Board said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose to 70.3. That's up from 61.3 in August, which was revised higher. And it's the highest reading since February, when the economy added 259,000 jobs. The indicator is watched closely because consumer spending drives nearly 70 per cent of economic activity. The reading is still below 90, a level that indicates a healthy economy. Since the beginning of the year, the index has fluctuated sharply. The survey was conducted from Sept. 1 through Sept. 13. It showed consumers were ...

Watch out China and Canada, “Made in America” has an attractive ring to it these days. Four years after the height of the financial crisis, marked by a drastic drop in salaries, the United States is again finding favor among manufacturers. Out on the campaign trail ahead of the November 6 elections, President Barack Obama has picked up on the point to convince voters that the US economy is back on track. “After years of undercutting the competition, now it’s getting more expensive to do business in places like China,” he said in May, adding that both wages and shipping costs were up in the single-party state known for attracting foreign firms that often ...

The Royal College of Physicians reports that NHS Hospitals are in a state of collapse and patients are suffering as doctors play pass the parcel with patients between wards due to lack of operational beds despite a record amount of over £130 billion extorted from tax payers annually to fund the NHS black hole. The RCP blames the crisis on a drop in the number of beds whilst demand has risen, this despite the fact that the NHS budget has more than tripled over the past 15 years as my earlier analysis illustrated . The NHS budget under Labour had grown from £40 billion in 1997 to £121 billion for 2009-2010. NHS budgets increasing in line with inflation (CPI) would have ...
