White House adviser will not rule out more money for states, small businesses

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Sunday he would not rule out anything in a new relief bill to ease the “tremendous hardships” of the coronavirus outbreak, including more money for state and local governments and small businesses.

More than 30 million Americans have joined the unemployment benefit rolls over the past six weeks and lawmakers on Capitol Hill are discussing a fourth coronavirus relief bill.

Democrats are pushing for additional aid to help cities and states cope with lost revenue from a shut-down economy and some governors have warned of massive layoffs if they fail to get it.

Some advisers to Republican President Donald Trump have said the need for another stimulus bill is not yet clear. But Kudlow said “there may well be additional legislation” as officials study how the billions included in the last bill take effect.

“We know the economy is

Money is the leading cause of stress in relationships

Fighting over money with your better half? Join the club.

Finances are the leading cause of stress in a relationship, according to a survey of people in a relationship or partnership released Wednesday by SunTrust Bank. Some 35 percent of all respondents experiencing relationship stress said money was the primary cause of friction. (Annoying habits came in second, at 25 percent.) Among respondents with relationship stress aged 44 to 54, 44 percent said money was the primary cause.

“Money really touches everything. It impacts people’s lives,” said Emmet Burns, brand marketing director for SunTrust.

Money and stress do seem to go hand in hand for many Americans, whether they’re in relationships or not. A study released earlier this week by the American Psychological Association found almost three-quarters of Americans are experiencing financial stress at least some of the time, and nearly a quarter of us are feeling extreme financial stress.

WASHINGTON, May 4 — The United States has made over US$500 billion (RM2.15 trillion) in loans to small businesses hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, and about US$145 billion remains in the congressionally approved fund, the US Small Business Administration and Treasury Department said yesterday.

The SBA has processed about 2.2 million loans worth more than US$175 billion since Congress last month authorised more funding for the Paycheck Protection Programme, part of almost US$3 trillion in spending to fight the heavy economic toll of the pandemic, which has thrown about 30 million Americans out of work.

The second round of funding was launched today, allowing lenders to issue forgivable, government-guaranteed loans to small businesses shuttered by the outbreak.

The traditional way to earn money, of course, is by having a job. You work for a company or start your own, and the work you do earns you money, which you spend on things like a mortgage, rent, food, clothing, utilities and entertainment.

CSGO surpasses Fortnite in prize money to reclaim its No. 2 spot

If you’ve been following us for a while, you’re probably aware of the time Fortnite overtook CSGO in esports earnings. Back then Fortnite was still a young esport and it being able to surpass CSGO – a well established title in the world of esports – caught many esports enthusiasts off-guard. However, Fortnite couldn’t enjoy the lead for long as it appears that CSGO has reclaimed its #2 spot on the charts within months of losing it.

According to esports earnings, CSGO now holds over a 10 million dollar lead to Fortnite in terms of prize money, bouncing back from the $200k deficit it had back in September 2019. The prize money of the Valve title now stands at an estimated 95,190,049$ while the Epic Games battle royale lags behind at $85,164,796.

To Buy Or Not To Buy: ‘How To Money’ Looks At The Housing Market & More

Spring is usually the busiest time for the housing market, but the coronavirus has changed that, too, and one listener asks Joel and Matt if they should buy now or wait until later. They’re already under contract, but have been advised that the market could be on a downturn, and if they wait, they could get a better price on the house. Not so fast, Joel says; while it’s true that banks have seen the lowest level of housing loan applications since 2015, that’s no indication that the market will change significantly, since housing inventory is still low. And right now, mortgage rates are incredibly low, so buying now with those rates could actually mean more savings in the long run than waiting for a cheaper price in the future. For that reason, refinancing an existing mortgage could be a good move, too. 

Another listener asks about the stimulus checks;
