according to a recent study by the research group Conference
Board. A rapid rise of cheap and secure communications
technologies has sparked a quiet revolution. Despite the
rise, only about 2% of the nation’s full-time employees work
primarily from home.

Increased Bartering Can Have Big Pay-Off
Could you increase your trading efforts to bring another $100 or
more in every single month? Doesn’t sound too hard does it? In fact
it’s such a puny goal that it probably doesn’t even inspire you. But
when you look at what an extra $100 will do for the building of
security and your peace of mind, it may suddenly get you moving.
Here’s the plan: Take the $100 and make an extra payment on your
home mortgage every month to reduce your loan. In most states you
may prepay up to 20% of the original loan during the first five
years without penalty, and after five years lenders cannot impose
any prepayment penalties.
By making just one extra monthly payment a year, you can cut seven
years off the life of a 30-year loan. (That equals $92,700 in saved
mortgage payments — based on a $200,000, 30-year fixed-rate loan at
8%.) But before you start making prepayments, it’s a good idea to
call the lender or loan-servicing company and ask it they have a
If you write a single check, be sure to include a note explaining
that you want the extra amount to be applied directly to your
principal. Otherwise, the money may be applied to your next month’s
payment, which won’t reap the interest savings. Also, keep a copy of
the check and your note just in case there is confusion down the

Housing Bubble Created Nation’s Major Problem
Prior to the recession the housing bubble had been driving the
economy through several channels, including the near record pace of
housing construction. The housing wealth created by the bubble, led
to a huge surge in consumption. (People borrowed against their
equity or decided they didn’t need to save for retirement with price
increases of 15% to 20% a year.)
When the bubble burst the downturn troubles began. The problem now
is how to get back to the days of consumption (demand). It’s a
totally different situation today as millions of people have less
wealth (home equity) and the baby boomers are approaching retirement
with almost nothing but Social Security to support them.
We are now into a long-term unwind of household deleveraging, and
until we’re through that we’re not going to see a rapid expansion of
consumption. In other words, the rate of consumption growth, which
accounts for two-thirds of the economy, is going to be slow.
Since the consumer cannot supply the needed growth, the two
remaining alternatives to boost our economy are foreign sales (which
require the dollar falling in value relative to other currencies)
and government spending in order to fill the gap in consumption
demand created by the housing bubble.
According to Dean Baker, an economist and co-director for Economic &
Policy Research, that is the simple reality that neither political
party is willing to tell the people.
