    The authors observed that incomes increase with age up to a certain point for all eight demographic groups and that married men—Black and white males—were the highest earners. However, a large disparity existed between married white men and the other groups.

    Married white men saw average earnings peak at $90,000 a year, and married Black men (the next-highest earners) experienced peak earnings at $62,000, which is only slightly more on average than the other groups, the authors pointed out.

    “A final observation is that single Black men and single Black women earn the least across all groups,” they wrote.

    By Peter Joseph, Economic Education Intern

    Education has become a powerful tool for improving human capital; it is truly a passport to the future. It allows many to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, or, for the bootless, by their shoelaces.

    At the same time, the price of such an education has proven to be crippling for many. Rising tuition and room and board costs have led many to turn to student loans for education. Student loan debt is a commitment millions find themselves unprepared for upon leaving college.

    In this post, we’ll look at some stages of tying the knot with college debt:

    St. Louis Fed Mon 21 Sep 2020 17:02

    St. Louis Fed President James Bullard discussed his outlook for U.S. GDP growth and unemployment, the Fed’s move to flexible average inflation targeting, and the possibility of seeing more inflation in the future than before the pandemic. He spoke at a virtual conference hosted by the Boeing Center for Supply Chain Innovation at Washington University in St. Louis.

    Bullard noted that the unemployment rate declined dramatically from double-digit levels to 8.4% as of the last jobs report, which was for August. He said that he has penciled in an unemployment rate of 6.5% for the December jobs report. He also noted that real GDP growth in the third quarter looks like it’ll be about 30% at an annual rate, which would be the biggest growth quarter of all time in the U.S.

    Bullard also explained what flexible average inflation targeting means at a practical level. When inflation runs below target for a while, the central bank would make up for that by allowing inflation...

    Description

    FRED® (Federal Reserve Economic Data) provides access to a wide range of time-series data. Several of those series signal stress levels in financial markets and the probability of economic recession. This article describes indexes of financial and economic recession risk to new data users and can serve as a reference to advanced data users. 

    Introduction

FRED® presents the data produced by organizations and individuals "as is"—that is, exactly as provided by the source. The Federal Reserve...
