Loaning substantial amounts of money to people who have no way of evidencing that they are capable of paying off loans is a reckless practice. However, if renters can show that they have paid their rent on time every month in addition to showing the ability to hold a job for a long period of time, the number of foreclosures will decline. I believe an increase in the value of the United States Dollar is critical to the housing market. When the value of the Dollar decreases in value, people are forced to pay more money in order to acquire goods and services. Consequently, the price of homes increases, limiting the base of prospective homebuyers.
Both of these effects have been documented in New York and elsewhere, and go against the goals of rent control. Finally, rent control has the bad side effect of turning away new construction. This is because even if rent controls don't include new constructions, owners are afraid to build any new buildings if in a few years those too will be taken over by rent control. Rent control thus leads to less construction and an even greater unsatisfied demand. This, in turn, increases the rents of uncontrolled apartments even more.
Despite the demand going up, the suppliers can regulate the supply in order to have high prices but naturally when the demand goes up, supply goes down. On the other hand, the demand and good economic times can spur growth of other manufacturers which can lead increased supply forcing the demand and the prices down. When making a decision to buy or not to buy, there are several factors that the buyer looks into because consumer reaction towards inflation is imperative. Despite inflation levels, consumers greatly determine the demand levels of any goods or services. Changes in consumer spending are determined by the inflation and interest rates and affect the investments which can negatively or positively impact the economy.
Usually the amount of unemployment benefits is not enough to keep this cycle going. Many people default on credit cards as their debt continues to grow, not unlike our government. The government extended the unemployment benefits, and has been paying for them. While the government can borrow money indefinitely, I do not think that it is a good idea. I think at some point the government is going to have to become a little more solvent.
Minimum wage is the minimum price you can pay your workers for their time and labor. While workers getting more money may seem like a positive idea, it actually has negative impacts on the economy. If the minimum wage goes too high, due to the increased wage that companies must pay, there will end up being layoffs in companies. They will have to raise their employees wage to a certain amount or higher, but will be unable to do so due to budget. This also results in fewer hirings, making the unemployment rate increase.
Price ceilings are additionally useful for keeping the average cost for basic items competitive throughout times of high inflation. Throughout high inflationary periods, prices build speedier than incomes, which decrease the dollar's buying force, making price ceilings important for purchasers to keep up their expectation for standard of living. However at the same time there are certain drawbacks of such as Price ceilings help keep supplie... ... middle of paper ... ...at product that could be sent out. Nonetheless, this again has illogical impacts: the export controls lower the aggregate supply on the worldwide market, which raises the item's price. Moreover, people who produce domestically can't sell their products for their maximum price either locally or on the global market price will substitute far from creation of that commodity, further lowering supply and consequently further increasing price.
Inflation is a wide phenomenon where prices increase thus resulting less buying power of individuals. Unemployment affects not just the person himself but also his/her family. Unemployment brings with it despair, unhappiness and anguish. It forces people to live their lives in a way they do not wish to, the life expectancy is negatively affected. Life expectancy is the way in which people living are able to satisfy their needs/wants.
This year, the rate of foreclosure has increased from a problem into a crisis, and it is of increasing importance that the problem be solved. More and more Americans are loosing their homes as unemployment rates rise and it gets harder to pay the bills. High foreclosure rates cause homelessness to rise and banks to struggle. Since home loans are secure in the fact that if payments are not made, the bank can take the house, also called foreclosing it, the bank is less at risk. The problem with this system is that when the housing market is down, the banks cannot sell the house, and lose money in the deal.
This will be due to prices rising so high that mortgages become unaffordable for first time property buyers and people with mortgages being unable to make their repayments because wages aren’t rising as quickly as mortgages. This will also be the case if interest rates rise; driving up mortgage rates and encouraging people to save their money rather than spend it. Consumer confidence is also likely to fall resulting in a further decrease in demand for house purchases and there is a risk that supply may suddenly outweigh demand resulting in even lower house
The quality of the rental properties tend to diminish over time as landlords are not able to get the full value out of their homes due to rent ceilings. Due to lack of incentive, landlords let their properties deteriorate and neglect maintenance as it would cost them money which they would never get back. Works Cited Block, Walter. "Rent Control."
