While it may be too early to declare a trend, what will it mean if these two central measures of the economy continue on the paths they’ve taken the last two years?According to William Dupor, Assistant VP and Economist for the St. Louis Fed, it will mean that the nation has entered a decline in the number of technology-related jobs available.The GDP grew at an average yearly rate of 3.1 percent from 1987 to 2006, which is the 20-year period prior to the recession, while employment grew at a rate of 1.6 percent during that same period. In 2015, GDP growth is likely to finish the year at a rate of around 1.8 percent (the first estimate for Q4 released last week was 0.7 percent). Employment grew at a rate of 1.9 percent for 2015 compared to the projected 1.8 percent for GDP, with a similar pattern happening in 2014, according to Dupor.Among other things, the GDP includes consumer goods and services as well as the buildings and equipment companies use; therefore, Dupor said, “The overriding reason that real GDP grows faster than employment over longer horizons is technology. As technology improves over time, workers become more productive, generating more GDP per worker.”If the GDP and employment rates continue to grow at their respective anomalous rates from the last two years and do not return to the pre-recession growth pattern, Dupor says, “The most disheartening explanation might be that the economy has downshifted into a period of slow technological growth that could last for many years.”While the recent employment reports have been positive as far as the number of jobs created, wage growth has been stagnant—and wage growth has been cited by many economists as the key to increasing household formation and raising a homeownership rate which fell to a 48-year low in the second quarter of 2015.The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in its December 2015 Employment Summary that wage growth still fails to dazzle, with average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls in December down by 1 cent at $25.24. This came after a 5 cent increase in November. For the entire year of 2015, average hourly earnings rose by 2.5 percent.Paul Ashworth, Chief US Economist at Capital Economics. says that wage growth was the only disappointment in the BLS report, and “a meaningful pick-up in wage growth is still the missing piece of the puzzle in this recovery, but the survey evidence suggests it will arrive soon.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

EXCLUSIVE: Barney Frank Responds to Trump Order

He has covered a number of communities across Texas and southern Oklahoma, writing news and sports for publications including the Ardmoreite, Ennis Daily News and the Plano Star-Courier. He is currently a contributor to DS News and The MReport. President Donald Trump’s executive order demanding an official review of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is his first real step toward fulfilling a promise he made in his campaign to overhaul the banking rule. The executive order, which President Trump signed Friday, will direct the Treasury secretary to consult members of different regulatory agencies and the Financial Stability Oversight Council, and report back on potential changes.Former House Representative Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) spoke to DS News on Friday, saying Trump’s latest executive order confirms his suspicions that Trump has no intention of maintaining strong regulatory controls over the financial industry.”He’s not worried about a repeat of 2008,” Frank said. “I think this is just confirmation that he believes we shouldn’t regulate the financial industry. Instead, he’s going to make people in business very happy.”Frank first introduced the Act into the House of Representatives in 2009, which passed in the Senate with the help of co-author Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut). It was signed into law by President Barack Obama on July 21, 2010.Frank said the executive order itself is no real threat to Dodd-Frank itself, as it only orders the Secretary of the Treasury to prepare a report.”The executive order doesn’t do anything. Literally it doesn’t do anything,” he said. “The reason is, he can’t change the provisions of the law by executive order. These are specific statutes, I think we were very careful about adopting them. He would like to get Congress substantively to weaken the bill legislatively.”Frank expressed his skepticism that repeal of financial reform will succeed in Congress.”Financial reform is very popular,” Frank said. “When the Republicans were in power under President Obama, they kept voting to repeal the healthcare bill entirely but they never put the vote to the floor to repeal financial reform because the public supports financial form.”He’s not going to get this through the Congress, I believe,” Frank said.Several members of the industry voiced their approval for the president’s order, while others expressed concern and called for caution.“It’s promising that President Trump is taking a proactive stance on re-examining regulations,” said Ed Delgado, President and CEO of the Five Star Institute and former Wells Fargo and Freddie Mac executive. “Dodd-Frank as it stands was well intended, but is complex and overbearing upon implementation and execution.”Trump also signed a presidential memorandum instructing the Labor Department to delay an Obama-era rule requiring financial professionals to put their clients’ interests first when giving advice on retirement investments.Brian Montgomery, former FHA Commissioner and Vice Chairman of the Washington D.C.-based think tank The Collingwood Group, echoed Delgado’s sentiment on potential changes to Dodd-Frank.“During the campaign, I am fairly certain candidate Trump didn’t say he supported fewer consumer protections, however he did make clear that changes were needed to Dodd-Frank and his recent comments signal that it’s time for a common-sense approach to regulation,” Montgomery said. “For one, the barrage of rules targeted at mortgage bankers has required them to spend hundreds of millions in technology upgrades most of which have nothing to do with improving the actual customer experience.”Montgomery said one independent banker told him he spends 75 percent of his IT budget on Dodd-Frank mandated changes alone.“The new regulatory regime has also driven up the cost to originate a mortgage loan to $7,046 in 2015 up from $4,500 in 2008,” he said. “This creates two major problems—lenders remain fearful of loan defaults and the heavy-handed government intrusion that follows and will only lend to borrowers with pristine credit, and it’s now uneconomical for them to originate smaller balance mortgages.”However, not all responses to a possible regulatory reduction were positive.Wade Henderson, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, took an opposing stance on the president’s order.“Making the financial system more fair and transparent is essential to providing low-income and minority communities with more economic stability,” Henderson said. “Over the past decade, our country has learned hard lessons about what happens when the game is rigged and regulators turn their backs to reckless subprime mortgages, payday loan debt traps, and shady bank account fees. President Trump seems bent on forgetting those lessons and on betraying the people he professed to represent when he talked about a ‘rigged’ system.”Many of the Act’s supporters point to the billions of dollars returned to U.S. consumers through regulatory actions mounted by the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, an agency created by the Act whose future is currently in doubt.Lisa Donner, executive director of Americans for Financial Reform, agreed with Henderson, calling the order a “betrayal” of Trump’s campaign promises to keep Wall Street in check.“Wall Street titan Goldman Sachs seems to be taking over financial regulation in the United States, trying to make it easier for them and other big banks like Wells Fargo to steal from their customers and destabilize the economy,” Donner said. “If they succeed it will have painful consequences.”Dan Berger, President and CEO of the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU) said they welcome regulators reviewing Dodd-Frank but also that they would continue to support and press the CFPB to use its authority to exempt credit unions from the regulations created to address abuses in which they did not engage.“Ultimately, we look forward to the administration, Congress and the regulators working together to reduce regulatory burden,” Berger said. “We will continue to advocate for credit unions’ best interests as this review moves forward.” EXCLUSIVE: Barney Frank Responds to Trump Order Sign up for DS News Daily in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Newscenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago February 3, 2017 1,464 Views Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago CFPB Dodd-Frank Government 2017-02-03 Phil Banker Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / EXCLUSIVE: Barney Frank Responds to Trump Order Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more

DOJ Requests Argument Time in CFPB Case

Circuit Court requesting ten minutes of argument time during the oral argument in the rehearing en banc in the PHH Corp case against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The argument is to be held on May 24.The D.C. circuit court allows for 30 minutes per side for oral argument. In its request for argument time, the DOJ stated that because “our position in this case does not fully align with either party,” it is requesting that “instead of sharing time with either party, we receive a total of ten minutes for the United States.”“We respectfully request leave to present oral argument in support of the position taken by the United States,” the motion states. “The United States has a unique interest in the resolution of the question presented, which centers on the validity of a statutory limitation on the President’s authority.”The DOJ previously filed an amicus brief in support of PHH Corp, declaring the Bureau unconstitutional. The 33-page brief from the DOJ focuses largely on President Trump’s power to replace the CFPB director.Justice Department lawyers have argued that the current structure of the CFPB are problematic, as it allows the presidency to remove the director only for negligence or malfeasance. The brief states that, instead, the president can remove the director at will.”Limitations on the president’s authority to remove a single agency head are a recent development to which the executive branch has consistently objected,” the Justice Department’s previous brief said. “Under the Constitution and Supreme Court precedent, the general rule is that the president must have authority to remove executive branch agency heads at will.”The DOJ’s position is that the CFPB is unconstitutional, but calls for restructuring. PHH, however, has called for the complete dismantling of the CFPB.The entire motion from the Department of Justice can be found here.

Housing Loans and “DREAMers”

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Housing Loans and “DREAMers” This week, Senate lawmakers introduced a bill intended to ensure beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are not denied federally-backed home loans. New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez along with his team of lawmakers including Catherine Cortez Masto introduced the Homeownership for Dreamers Act to prevent agencies including the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Fannie Mae-Freddie Mac from refusing loans to “DREAMers,” The Nevada Independent reports.“For many young Nevadans, homeownership represents a crucial step in securing their financial futures. It’s unacceptable that this Administration continues to target the 13,000 Dreamers in Nevada, and thousands more nationally, by denying them housing loans simply because of their immigration status,” Cortez Masto said in a statement. “I’m proud to co-sponsor legislation that protects Dreamers’ eligibility to buy homes, invest in their futures and pursue the American dream.”Despite the push from these lawmakers, some note that non-U.S. citizens without lawful residency, including DACA recipients, are not eligible for FHA loans.“Accordingly, because DACA does not confer lawful status, DACA recipients remain ineligible for FHA loans,” said the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in a statement.Earlier this year, in a hearing before the House Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies, HUD Secretary Ben Carson was questioned by Rep. Pete Aguilar on if DACA recipients are eligible for FHA-backed loans.Aguilar asked Carson “To your knowledge, are DACA recipients eligible for FHA-backed loans, and has HUD made any changes to existing policy or interpretations?.”“No one was aware of any changes that had been made to the policy whatsoever. I’m sure we have plenty of DACA recipients who have FHA-backed loans,” Carson responded.Aguilar then asked Carson if HUD had changed any policy that was not yet in writing.”I have instructed everyone to follow the laws of the United States, with regard to DACA, with regard to anyone who is an immigrant or potential immigrant to this country,” Carson answered. “As long as you continue to follow the laws, you will have my approval.” About Author: Seth Welborn DACA FHA loans 2019-06-24 Seth Welborn Related Articles Tagged with: DACA FHA loans Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Housing Loans and “DREAMers” in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Newscenter_img Previous: Affordability Increases on the West Coast Next: Wells Fargo Looks to Assist Those Impacted by Disasters Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas in “Florida Supreme Court Rejects No Standing = No Fees Rule.” In “Residential Leasebacks: A Tool Against Future Foreclosure Crises,” Daniel Kattan, CEO of Sell2Rent explores a robust residential leaseback program that, if properly implemented, could help keep struggling homeowners in their home, while also avoiding costly foreclosure proceedings. And lastly, the question on everyone’s mind, “Is a Foreclosure Crisis in the Cards?” In the month’s final feature, Patrick F.
