U.S. Savings Rate at Highest Point in 15 Years

Tax cuts from the stimulus package and increases in Social Security checks lifted personal incomes sharply in May, the government reported on Friday, but it appeared that many people were putting that money away instead of spending it.

Although personal spending increased slightly last month, the saving rate climbed to its highest level in 15 years as consumers tried to build a buffer against the threat of job losses and more economic hardships.

The personal saving rate, which dipped below zero during the housing boom as Americans tapped home equity loans and other easy lines of credit, rose to 6.9 percent in May, the Commerce Department reported. That was its highest point since December 1993.

On Wall Street, investors saw little reason to cheer the increases in incomes or spending, and stocks ended mostly lower, undoing some of the gains from a day earlier. Stocks closed lower for a second week, offering more fodder to bearish investors who say that this spring’s stock rally has largely run its course.

The Dow Jones industrial average lost 34.01 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 8,438.39 while the wider Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index was 1.36 points, or 0.1 percent, lower at 918.9. Strength in technology stocks helped to lift the Nasdaq index 8.68 points, or 0.5 percent, higher, at 1,838.22.

For the week, the Dow fell 1 percent, and the S.& P. 500 was little changed.

Interest rates were steady. The Treasury’s benchmark 10-year note was up 1/32, to 96 19/32, and the yield, which moves in the opposite direction from the price, was at 3.54 percent, unchanged from late Thursday.

As personal savings return to more normal levels, the increase prompts what economists call the “paradox of thrift.”

Although saving money helps individuals repair their finances and pay debts, a sharp rise in overall personal saving can actually deepen a recession and hurt the people who are saving more. As people save money, fewer dollars circulate through shopping malls, Main Street businesses, and large employers and subsequently back to workers through their paychecks. This thrift pulls the economy lower.

Economists say the recent spike in personal saving is likely to fall back slightly as the effects of government stimulus fade, but they have said that Americans are becoming thriftier and are not likely to return to the free-spending patterns that fueled much of the growth of the last nine years.

Steep declines in home values and individual stock portfolios have erased trillions of dollars in household wealth. The economist Joshua Shapiro of the consulting firm MFR noted that he was “clearly seeing signs of households altering their behavior in the face of large capital losses in investment and real estate portfolios, an abysmal labor market and tight credit.”

Still, while consumer spending did not increase last month as rapidly as savings, it did post a small increase. Personal consumption rose 0.3 percent in May after falling or remaining flat in the two previous months.

The rise in personal incomes, 1.4 percent, was an indication that money from the government’s $787 billion stimulus program was beginning to flow through the American economy.

“That’s the whole point — put money back in the pockets of consumers and households, and they’ve accomplished that,” Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight, said. “The good news is, it’s working. The question is, how much of this is a blip?”

Although disposable personal income rose at a seasonally adjusted rate of $178.1 billion in May, the Commerce Department also reported that private wages and salaries had decreased $12.4 billion.

Also, consumer attitudes rose for a fifth month in June, and were actually higher than in the period a year ago, when gasoline prices were peaking and the struggling economy was heading for a steep drop. The Reuters-University of Michigan consumer survey reported Friday that sentiment rose to 70.8 in June, up from 68.7 a month earlier.

But many consumers are still living on the edge. A majority said their financial situation had deteriorated in June as they either lost jobs, worked fewer hours or otherwise saw their incomes decline, according to the survey.

The recession has already erased some six million jobs since December 2007, and economists expect the losses to continue through the rest of the year, despite the effects of the stimulus package.

U.S. Home Price Declines Moderating, Index Says

In a faint hint of hope for the country’s struggling housing market, home prices did not fall as fast in April as they did in previous months, according to figures released Tuesday.

Home prices continued to fall as unemployment rose and tides of new foreclosures hit the market. But the pace of declines, which had been accelerating, leveled off slightly, according to Standard & Poor’s Case-Shiller Home Price Index, a closely watched yardstick of the market.

“This is a real relief,” Ian Shepherdson, chief United States economist at High Frequency Economics, wrote in a research note. “With sales volumes now stable and likely to rise a bit over the next few months, we think sustained slower price falls are a decent bet.”

In April, home prices in 20 major metropolitan areas fell 18.1 percent from a year ago. Although that is a stark drop from April 2008 (when prices were already 15 percent below their April 2007 levels), it is a milder decline compared with this winter, when home prices plunged 19 percent.

“It echoes parts of the larger economy,” said David M. Blitzer, index chairman at Standard & Poor’s. “The stock market bottomed in March and started to go up. Consumer sentiment numbers have gotten better as well. There’s a little pickup in the way people view the financial world, and it’s beginning to show up in housing.”

Home prices in eight markets actually crept up in April from a month earlier as bargain-hunting buyers tiptoed back into markets. Prices in Cleveland, Dallas and Denver all rose more than 1 percent for the month, although those cities and all of the 20 metro areas in the survey were still down for the year.

But single-home prices are still plunging in parts of the United States hit hardest by the housing boom and bust. Prices in Las Vegas fell 3.5 percent from a month earlier, and were down 32.2 percent from April 2008. Prices in Phoenix were 35.3 percent lower than a year ago.

While the rate of decline did slow a bit, home prices are still under enormous pressure as potential buyers lose their jobs or see their wages cut. Home-mortgage rates have also bounced back from record lows as investors put more pressure on government bonds, leading to concerns about whether higher borrowing costs will pressure sellers to cut their selling prices even further.

But over all, economists characterized the numbers as a positive, if small, step for the housing market.

“This is the critical moment,” Mr. Blitzer said. “You have to slow the descent before you can turn up.”

But in a more subdued note, the private Conference Board reported Tuesday that consumer confidence retreated in June after improving steadily for three months. Consumers said their current economic conditions were worse, and their expectations for the future — which had nudged the index higher — also fell.

The Conference Board’s index of consumer confidence fell to 49.3 in June from 54.8 in May.

Fewer consumers said that business conditions were good or that jobs were plentiful. And more people expect that jobs will be harder to get in six months, and that business conditions will be worse. Fewer consumers plan to buy new cars, major appliances or new homes.

Consumer confidence falls in June

By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO, AP Retail Writer – 49 mins ago
NEW YORK – Americans — whose hope for the economy had been rising since March — are starting to lose faith, pushing down a widely watched barometer of sentiment in June.
The New York-based Conference Board said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index now stands at 49.3, down from its revised May level of 54.8.
Economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters had projected confidence would be virtually unchanged at 55 this month. The dip follows surges in April and May that were helped by a stock market rally.
The index comprises two parts. The Present Situation Index, which measures how shoppers feel now about the economy, declined to 24.8 from 29.7. The Expectations Index, shoppers’ outlook for the next six months, declined to 65.5 from 71.5 in May.
Lynn Franco, director of The Conference Board Consumer Research Center, said in a statement that the decline in consumers’ current view — caused by a less favorable assessment of business conditions and employment — “continues to imply that economic conditions, while not as weak as earlier this year, are nonetheless weak.”
She said the six-month outlook suggests consumers are “less negative” about the months ahead, rather than anticipating strong growth.
Economists closely monitor consumer confidence because consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of economic activity in the United States.
Consumer sentiment — bolstered in part by signs the economy is stabilizing — has risen markedly from its new historic low of 25.3 in February. But it’s still well below what’s considered healthy. A reading above 90 means the economy is on solid footing. Above 100 signals strong growth.
May’s confidence figure zoomed 14 points past economists’ expectations to the highest level since September, when it was 61.4. Economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected a reading of 42.3 in May.
But that rise hasn’t translated into relief for merchants, who continue to struggle with weak sales. Now, the concern is whether retail sales will falter as shoppers resume worrying about their economic security.

Pa. doc at center of VA cancer probe admits errors

By MARYCLAIRE DALE, Associated Press Writer
Mon Jun 29, 5:39 pm ET

PHILADELPHIA – A doctor accused of botching dozens of prostate cancer surgeries at a Veterans Administration hospital admitted Monday that he sometimes missed his target when implanting radioactive seeds, leaving patients with incorrect dosages.
But Dr. Gary D. Kao called the mistakes commonplace in aiming seeds at the walnut-sized prostate, which sits near the bladder and rectum, and he steadfastly refused to become a scapegoat for the scandal at the VA Medical Center in Philadelphia.
“Contrary to the allegations that I was a ‘rogue’ physician, … I always acted in the best interest of the patients in delivering this important treatment,” Kao, a radiation oncologist, testified at a Senate field hearing at the hospital, where he worked from 2002 to 2008.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has found that 92 of 116 men treated in the hospital’s brachytherapy program received incorrect doses of the radiation seeds, often because they landed in nearby organs or surrounding tissue rather than the prostate. Kao performed the majority of the procedures under a VA contract with the University of Pennsylvania, where he was on staff.
Under questioning from Sen. Arlen Specter, Kao acknowledged that he never informed patients when he missed the prostate or delivered insufficient doses.
Kao, however, said the mistakes did not necessarily amount to substandard care that had to be reported to the NRC or other agencies.
“Brachytherapy was and still is an evolving field,” he said.
Kao, 45, testified at the hearing voluntarily, albeit with a lawyer at his side. In a lengthy written statement, he said he earned his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University, did his radiation oncology residency at the University of Pennsylvania and has never been sued for malpractice.
Rep. John Adler, D-N.J., harshly questioned why he still had a medical license.
Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Pa., seemingly defended Kao while questioning the long-term safety of the procedure, which thousands of men across the country have undergone in recent years.
Specter sought the middle ground, eliciting an apology and an awkward embrace from Kao to one of his alleged victims, the Rev. Ricardo Flippin.
Flippin, 68, of Charleston, W.Va., testified that he lost his job during five months he spent in bed, incapacitated, after Kao implanted seeds into his rectum instead of his prostate in 2005. The VA suggested he was suffering from hemorrhoids or constipation afterward, but an Ohio State University physician finally diagnosed the problem as radiation burn and surgically corrected it, Flippin said.
“Rev. Flippin, we should have, we can do better,” Kao said. “I hope we have a chance to do better for you and your colleagues in the future.”
Flippin said he would have chosen another treatment option, such as having his prostate removed, had he known the risks involved with the radiation seeds.
The brachytherapy program at the VA Medical Center in Philadelphia has been suspended. A review of 12 other VA hospitals where the procedure is performed showed a handful of problems, but none on the same magnitude. The NRC also said, based on reporting by doctors and the agency’s own reviews, the problems at the Philadelphia hospital were far more frequent than U.S. hospitals overall.
Kao has stopped performing the surgeries and last week took a leave from the University of Pennsylvania.

BI: Rupiah pada 10.500-11.000 per dolar AS

oleh : Hendri T. Asworo

JAKARTA (Bisnis.com): Bank Indonesia memproyeksikan nilai tukar rupiah hingga akhir tahun ini bergerak pada level Rp10.500-Rp11.000 per dolar AS.

Deputi Gubernur BI Hartadi A. Sarwono mengatakan hingga Juni 2009 rata-rata nilai tukar berapa di level Rp11.055 per dolar AS. Namun, nilai tukar diperkirakan akan mengalami penguatan hingga akhir tahun.

“Dengan perkembangan terakhir pada semester kedua dengan nilai tukar yang lebih baik, kami perkirakan bahwa rata-rata nilai tukar ini akan membaik dan berada pada Rp10.500 sampai Rp11.000 sampai akhir tahun 2009,” paparnya di Jakarta, hari ini.

Dari sisi inflasi, tambahnya, pada tahun ini diperkirakan akan mencapai batas bawah ekspektasi sebesar 5%. Secara keseluruhan tahun ini, kami perkirakan apabila nanti faktor musiman seperti Hari Raya dan Tahun Baru tidak memberikan tekanan inflasi yang terlalu besar, perkiraan masih bisa di 5% atau lebih rendah dari 5%.

Menurut dia, dengan kecenderungan inflasi sedemikian rendah suku bunga rata-rata SBI 3 bulan akan menurun. “Sekarang rata-rata berada di angka 8,75% dan harapan kami dengan kecenderungan inflasi yang menurun dan likuiditas yang cukup, kami akan bisa membawa lagi ke bawah lagi rata -rata di kisaran 7,25% sampai 7,75%.”(yn)

Semester II 2009
Menkeu: Ekspor Masih Minus 9,7%
Namun kondisi ekspor semester II 2009 masih jauh lebih baik dibandingkan semester I.
SELASA, 30 JUNI 2009, 17:21 WIB
Umi Kalsum, Agus Dwi Darmawan

VIVAnews – Meski masih terjadi kontraksi, perkembangan ekspor impor Indonesia pada semester dua 2009 diperkirakan jauh lebih baik dibandingkan semester pertama tahun ini. Perbaikan itu didukung kondisi global ekonomi dunia yang mulai membaik.

Menteri Keuangan Sri Mulyani Indrawati mengatakan ekspor Indonesia pada semester dua 2009 diperkirakan masih akan kontraksi sebesar 9,7 persen, dan impor minus 9,2 persen.

Kondisi ini, lebih baik dibandingkan semester 2009 lalu yang mengalami kontraksi signifikan sampai minus 16,7 persen untuk ekspor dan minus 22,2 persen untuk impor.

Dari sisi pertumbuhan nilai, kata dia, nilai ekspor dan impor Indonesia juga diperkirakan meningkat. Pada semester dua 2009, perkiraan ekspor adalah US$ 53 miliar atau meningkat dibanding ekspor semester satu yang hanya sebesar US$ 48,4 miliar. Sedangkan untuk impor sebesar US$ 43,6 miliar naik dibanding semester satu yang hanya US$ 36,1 miliar.

“Tapi besaran nilai ekspor ini jauh lebih kecil kalau dibandingkan tahun 2008 yang mencapai puncak harga,” katanya di DPR, Selasa 30 Juni 2009.

Pemerintah memperkirakan dengan semakin membaiknya kegiatan perdagangan ini, pertumbuhan ekonomi 2009, juga semakin membaik. Semester dua pertumbuhan ekonomi diperkirakan bisa tumbuh 4,6 persen atau lebih baik dibandingkan semester satu yang hanya tumbuh 4,1 persen. “Keseluruhan tahun, pertumbuhan ekonomi kita bisa tumbuh 4,3 persen,” katanya.

Poll finds Alan Greenspan to blame for credit crisis
Tue Jun 30, 2009 5:50am EDT
LONDON (Reuters) – Greedy bankers are routinely blamed for the credit crisis but one British-based poll of — well, financiers — spreads the blame more widely.

Gary Jenkins, Head of Fixed Income Research at Evolution Securities, wanted a more specific scapegoat and ran a poll of about 200 mostly fund managers and investors asking them to pick their credit crisis culprit.

Former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan was the clear winner, picking up 35 percent of the votes. Once considered one of the world’s greatest central bankers, he has been widely criticized over the past year for low interest rate policies that helped fuel the credit boom.

Former U.S. president Bill Clinton figured quite prominently with about 10 percent of votes, and British prime minister Gordon Brown also got quite a few.

Some bankers were singled out, including Fred Goodwin, former chief executive of Royal Bank of Scotland and Richard Fuld, the head of Lehman Brothers, the U.S. investment bank which filed for bankruptcy protection last September.

There were a few more unusual choices: Adam Smith, the 18th century economist, the legendary King Midas, who turned everything he touched into gold, Sarah Beeny, who hosts property TV shows in Britain and Robert Peston, the BBC’s business editor.

One vote went to “the Belgians” and another to Ray Wilkins, an assistant team coach at Chelsea, the football club.

Jenkins himself suggested Microsoft founder Bill Gates take some blame for putting together the technology — spreadsheets and presentation software — that made it easy to create and sell the complex credit products that played a key role.

“That’s a bit tongue-in-cheek,” he said. “If I had to choose one person I would choose Greenspan,” adding that of course it was unfair to blame one person.

He said Greenspan’s reputation had rapidly switched from being one of the world’s leading economic thinkers to someone who helped cause the credit binge and bust.

“He’s like a sporting star who’s gone from hero to zero,” said Jenkins. “He’s the Ronan O’Gara of central banking,” referring to an Irish rugby star who has recently upset fans for bungling a tackle.

BI: Pertumbuhan Ekonomi 2009 Hanya Akan Capai 4%
Angga Aliya ZRF – detikFinance

Foto: dok.detikFinance Jakarta – Bank Indonesia (BI) memperkirakan pertumbuhan ekonomi Indonesia di 2009 hanya akan mencapai 4% atau lebih rendah dari perkiraan pemerintah yang sebesar 4,3%.

Menurut Deputi Gubernur (BI) Hartadi A Sarwono, pertumbuhan tersebut bisa terealisasi jika didukung oleh pemulihan ekonomi Amerika Serikat dan Eropa.

“Kalau dulu kan 3,5-4%. Sekarang mengarah ke 4% saja. Tapi harus melihat kecepatan dari recovery globalnya,” ungkapnya usai rapat kerja bersama Panitia Anggaran DPR di Gedung MPR/DPR, Senayan, Jakarta, Selasa (30/6/2009).

Menurutnya, pemulihan ekonomi regional saat ini sudah mulai terasa, terutama pada kondisi ekonomi dalam negeri. Pertumbuhan ekonomi Indonesia selama ini banyak didukung oleh kredit konsumsi yang penyalurannya cukup besar.

“Kalau kita lihat pertumbuhan ekonomi ini di kuartal satu lebih banyak ditunjang oleh kredit konsumsi. Seperti kegiatan pemilu dan sebagainya. Hingga kredit ke arah konsumsi lebih besar,” ujarnya.

Menurutnya, kredit konsumsi juga akan menjadi penyokong kegiatan ekspor di semester berikutnya dalam memberi kredit investasi dan modal kerja. Dengan begitu, kegiatan ekonomi bisa lebih baik seperti yang diramalkan oleh pemerintah.

PARIS, June 30, 2009 (AFP) –

Child survives Yemeni plane crash with 153 on board
Tue Jun 30, 2009 8:10am EDT
By Ahmed Ali Amir

MORONI (Reuters) – An Airbus A310-300 from Yemen with 153 people on board, including 66 French nationals, crashed into the sea off the Indian Ocean archipelago of Comoros as it approached in bad weather early on Tuesday, officials said.

A doctor in the Comoros told Reuters a child had been plucked alive from the sea and was being taken to a medical center. The manager of the international airport in Moroni said the child was five. He said five bodies had also been found.

The Paris airports authority said 66 French nationals were aboard the plane, which was flying the final leg of a trip from Paris and Marseille to Comoros via Yemen.

A Yemeni aviation official said there were also nationals from Canada, Comoros, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Morocco, the Palestinian territories, the Philippines and Yemen on the plane.

Two French military planes and a French ship left the Indian Ocean islands of Mayotte and Reunion to search for the plane.

“A doctor from the military hospital aboard one of the rescue boats called the Mitsamiouli hospital to tell them a child had been rescued alive,” Halidi Ahmed Abdou, a doctor at a medical center opened for survivors, told Reuters.

It is the second Airbus to plunge into the sea this month. An Air France Airbus A330-200 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean killing 228 people on board on June 1. A preliminary report on that crash is due on Thursday.

The Paris-Marseille-Yemen leg of the Yemenia flight was flown by an Airbus A330. In Sanaa, those passengers who were flying on to the Comoros changed onto a second Yemenia plane, the A310 that crashed.


French Transport Minister Dominique Bussereau said faults had been detected during inspections in France in 2007 on the Yemenia A310, and that it had not flown to France since.

“The A310 in question was inspected in 2007 by the DGAC (French transport authorities) and they noticed a certain number of faults,” he told the I-tele television channel.

“The company was not on the black list but was subject to stricter checks on our part, and was due to be interviewed shortly by the European Union’s safety committee.”

But Yemen’s transport minister said the plane was thoroughly checked in May under Airbus supervision.

“It was a comprehensive inspection carried out in Yemen … with experts from Airbus,” Khaled Ibrahim al-Wazeer told Reuters from Sanaa. “It was in line with international standards.”

The EU’s Transport Commissioner Antonio Tajani said it would contact Yemenia to see what had happened and planned to propose a global blacklist of airlines deemed unsafe.

French television showed pictures of friends and relatives of the passengers weeping at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport, many of them railing at the airline.

Airbus said it was dispatching a team of investigators to the Comoros. It said the aircraft was built in 1990 and had been used by Yemenia since 1999. Its engines were built by Pratt and Whitney, a unit of United Technologies.

“We still do not have information about the reason behind the crash, or survivors,” Mohammad al-Sumairi, deputy general manager for Yemenia operations, told Reuters.

A Yemenia official said there were 142 passengers including three infants, and 11 crew. The plane was flying to Moroni, capital of Grande Comore, the main island of the archipelago.

“The weather conditions were rough; strong wind and high seas. The wind speed recorded on land at the airport was 61 kph (38 mph). There could be other factors,” Sumairi said.

“We think the crash is somewhere along its landing approach,” said Ibrahim Kassim from ASECNA, an aviation security agency which covers Francophone Africa. “The weather is really not very favourable. The sea is very rough.”


The French military said it had sent army and civilian medical teams, boats and divers to the crash site aboard the plane from Reunion. Comoros authorities sent small speedboats.

France and the Comoros have enjoyed close ties since the islands’ independence in 1975. France estimates 200,000 people from Comoros live in mainland France, and remittances from France are an important part of the islands’ economy.

A United Nations official at Moroni airport, who declined to be named, said the control tower had received notification the plane was coming in to land, and then lost contact with it.

Yemenia is 51 percent owned by Yemen and 49 percent by Saudi Arabia. Its fleet includes two Airbus 330-200s, four Airbus 310-300s and four Boeing 737-800s, according to its website.
