Crisis Reality: Will The U.S. Housing Crisis Effect Canada?

Crisis Reality: Will The U.S. Housing Crisis Effect Canada?

All of this loss of money has affected the job market in the United States as well. The U.S. Labour department has released its job numbers for February and the numbers are down. They report that 63,000 jobs were lost in February which is the biggest loss in five years. This is in addition to the 22,000 jobs that were lost in January. And in the construction industry 361,000 jobs have been lost since September of 2006 following the overall decline of the American real estate market.

For the same time period the Canadian jobs numbers look quite different. Statistics Canada have just released their job numbers and for February of 2008 employment hit a new record or 63.9% with 43,000 jobs being created. In the past twelve months more than three hundred thousand jobs were created and in the all important construction industry 44,000 new jobs were added. This could be a sign that Canada will be able to weather the storm better than our neighbours to the south or more than likely that Canada has yet to experience the effects of the mortgage meltdown.

Living In The USA: Why Are Taxes So High?

Now, interest rates are dropping, tax breaks are being proposed to help the average consumer, and the government is calling for a moratorium on home foreclosures. Many financial analysts say that the United States in already in a recession while other experts warn that the country is on the verge of going into recession.

Experts in the field of finance are saying that both government and consumer spending must be reduced. When people refuse to buy products, companies will be forced to lower their prices. However, with the higher cost of gasoline, stores have to charge more to compensate for that additional expense. Taxes need to be cut, but that will be impossible as long as the U.S. continues to be funding a war.

Stress Management: 7 Ways To Deal With Stress

Exercise not only contributes to our physical well-being, but also enables our minds and our thinking to be as clear as possible. Exercise requires a degree of concentration and enables us to be removed from thinking about our stress.

Perhaps a change of environments will eliminate a source of stress. While we might not be able to physically move, we can avoid or ignore stressful situations. Sometimes our stress might be self-induced and we need to change or modify our attitudes about certain situations.
