Families across all income groups are earning more than they did five years ago and, in general, their incomes are rising faster than their spending, a government survey has found. The survey also found that the standard of living continued to rise. Conducted every five years, the latest Household Expenditure Survey is based on data collected in 2017 and last year for 13,100 Singaporean and permanent resident households. AVERAGE MONTHLY INCOME ROSE Overall, the average monthly household income rose to $11,780 from $10,470 in the survey conducted between 2012 and 2013. This works out to an average hike of 2.4 per cent a year in dollar terms. If inflation is taken into account, the rise is 2.2 per cent a year. Spending on goods and services also went up to $4,910 a month from $4,720 five years before. There were divergences, though, in the earning and spending patterns across different income groups. For households in the top 20 per cent income group, monthly expenditure remained … [Read more...] about Families earning more than they did 5 years ago
By Mike Donachie Special to the Star Fri., May 10, 2019 “I’m a happily melancholic person.” Seth, sporting an immaculate green suit and coordinated tie, smiles as he explains his thoughtful approach to life, which involves pondering his past as he creates beautiful comic book stories carrying subtle statements about Canadian life. The discussion, over red wine on a rainy day in Toronto, ranges from politics to movie studios to his collection of dolls’ chairs, on display in his home in Guelph. For someone who insists he’s happiest when alone, Seth is a remarkable conversationalist. We’re chatting because he has a new book out, and it’s an important one. Clyde Fans is the culmination of 20 years of semi-regular work on a strange, sad story of two brothers and a family business — a fictional company based on a real, though closed, office spotted by the author in Toronto — left in the dust by change. Seth, who … [Read more...] about Seth on Clyde Fans won’t be blown aside by winds of change
It has been six months since the Open Electricity Market (OEM) was launched nationwide on a zonal basis. This month marked the opening of the final zone, and all consumers are now able to buy electricity from a retailer of their choice. While the OEM allows households to enjoy competitive pricing and potentially save on their electricity bills, some may still wonder how the initiative works and what the benefits are. Let’s clear up five common misconceptions about the OEM. Myth #1: I must sign up with an electricity retailer in the OEM. No, you need not make any changes to your current arrangement of buying electricity from SP Group at the regulated tariff. The OEM is about you, the consumer, having a choice on who you wish to buy electricity from. So whether you switch to a different retailer or stay with SP Group, it’s up to you. You can also choose to make the switch anytime in the future as there is no deadline for switching. Take the time … [Read more...] about 5 myths about the Open Electricity Market
By Kathryn Hudson The Kit Mon., April 29, 2019 I never know how often to wash my hair. I’ve read that it’s good to skip as many washes as possible, but my hair has a tendency to get quite limp after a day or two, maximum. I often resort to wearing it up or using dry shampoo to try to prolong my style, but I’m wondering if I should just wash it every day to freshen it up. Will that actually damage my hair? — Shelley, Oakville There is a good chance this question is also scrawled on the wall of a cave somewhere — painted in symbols by primitive man — because it seems like one of the most fundamental queries asked over and over again by humankind. (Perhaps that’s a slight exaggeration, but the topic does garner over 122 million hits when Googled online, so it seems clear we’re searching for an answer.) I, myself, engage in variations of this conversation several times a day. I have to carefully schedule when I … [Read more...] about Ask The Kit: Do I really need to wash my hair every day?
