Buy now, pay later” can be a convenient payment method. But if you don’t factor the recurring payments into your budget, it can get messy. This is especially true if you’re juggling multiple buy now, pay later plans on top of other debts. The credit inquiries that some lenders conduct when you apply for any type of credit don’t always offer visibility into buy now, pay later plans you may hold with different companies, so it may be possible to bite off more than you can chew. Equifax, one of the three major credit bureaus, is aiming to change that in the first quarter of 2022 by formalizing a process for including buy now, pay later information on credit reports. “Part of the push here is to support responsible lending,” says Mark Luber, chief product officer for U.S. information solutions at Equifax. “When a company lends, they want to make sure the consumer can handle that new credit account and can in fact pay it back.” An unpaid buy now, pay later balance could get … [Read more...] about Millennial Money: What to do if you buy now, can’t pay later
Inflation has nullified increases to wages in Britain last year, with workers experiencing a decline in pay in real terms in November, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed on Tuesday. The latest report on average weekly earnings from the UK’s official statistician body found that in the three months leading up to November, wages — excluding bonuses — rose by 3.8 per cent compared to the same time period in the previous year. However, due to rising inflation, which has hit a ten-year high, wage rises were reduced to zero per cent in real terms. The ONS report went on to say that in November, weekly earnings fell for the first time since July of 2020, with a decline of one per cent and 0.9 per cent including bonuses. Director of employment for the Confederation of British Industry, Matthew Percival told Sky News: “Rising inflation means that squeezed incomes joins the difficulties firms are facing filling vacancies as major challenges in the UK labour market.” … [Read more...] about UK Wage Hikes Wiped Out to Zero by Soaring Inflation
ST. CHARLES, Mo. — The flavors at the Peruvian restaurant Jalea are electric. The location? A bit more unassuming. The nearest major city, St. Louis, is 23 miles away. But on a quiet cobblestone street, sandwiched between a Pilates studio and a financial services consultancy, you’ll find ceviche with delicate slices of grouper and plump corn kernels, all swimming in a tart, ginger-heavy leche de tigre; and lomo saltado whose soy- and vinegar-laden sauce arrives lacquered onto chunks of rib-eye. Jalea’s owners, the siblings Mimi and Andrew Cisneros, recognized the risk in choosing this quaint street over a city known for its vibrant restaurant scene . But they saw opportunities in the suburbs that they wouldn’t find in St. Louis. Yes, the rent was lower. And St. Charles, where the Cisneroses spent their teenage years, is also one of the fastest-growing counties in Missouri. “St. Charles is not just the white suburbs where we grew up,” Ms. Cisneros said. “It is becoming … [Read more...] about America’s Next Great Restaurants Are in the Suburbs.
