Housing: U.S Middle-Class Can No Longer Afford

2016 - 08 - 11

Since 2012, U.S housing recovery has began in 2012, but a revamp housing market didn’t create an equal economic benefit for everyone, but a generation of renters who can no longer afford a house.


美國房市從2012年開始復甦,但房價回升並未帶來雨露均霑的經濟復甦,反而創造了一整個世代的長期租屋族,無力買房,只能望屋興嘆。

華爾街日報此篇新聞摘譯如下:

(1) 房價持續上漲,整體而言,只比金融海嘯前的高點低2%
Overall prices are now just 2% below the peak reached in July 2006.

(2) 擁屋率(62.9%)持續下探,跌至51年來的最低點;有專家預測至2050年時可能掉到58%甚至再低
While economists expected the homeownership rate to begin edging up this year, the rate fell to a 51-year low of 62.9% in the second quarter.

The rate could fall to 58% or lower by 2050, according to a recent prediction by housing experts Arthur Acolin of the University of Southern California.

(3) 租金報酬率在4%以上,接近台灣三倍;租屋族苦哈哈,包租公笑哈哈

(4) 買不起房的雙重打擊:一方面享受不到財富增值(房價上漲)且退休後仍須承擔租屋壓力,二方面要不斷面對接連上漲的租金
Long-term declines could erase gains made by middle-class Americans since World War II. Owning a home provides protection against rising rents and has been a key component of retirement saving and wealth creation.

Internal Controls Have No Intrinsic Value?

It’s simple, to completely store the context of operations, adequately and appropriately . 很簡單,就是完整保存工作紀錄的來龍去脈,保存工作必須充分、適當,也就是該有的要有、不該看的不能看。雖然這一定不是最完美無暇的內部控制制度,但是絕對是最經濟、最有實效的。有效的文件管理就是通往實用內控的康莊大道! 內控的骨幹就是文件管理,這是從實證觀察中得出來的結論。本書將以創新的觀點提出內控的核心就是文件管理,於以下的章節中本書將會證明只要有一套有效的文件管理制度,內部控制就已經達到及格的水準。 反之,如果企業僅僅是花了大把鈔票請會計師或承銷商作出一套厚達幾百頁的內控表單,而實際上公司之各部門仍然是各行其道,那內部控制不過就是紙上談兵爾爾。

Lack of Internal Controls Mechanism : Faulty Business Operations

What problem would arise if we do not implement proper internal controls mechanism? The mechanism itself aims to assist business owners to have a full and appropriate control over their company. 談完了內部控制的三大目標、五大要素,我們要來看看如果沒有把內部控制機制做好,到底會遇到什麼樣子的難題呢?內部控制制度本身是希望能幫助企業主對於其企業的營運有良好、全面的掌控,並且有利期監督,並且改良各種制度,所以一旦內部控制制度出了問題或是根本沒有控制制度,基本上各種難題都會應運而生,就像成語所說的「禍不單行」啦。基本上各家企業都會有一定的營運流程,那就是內部控制的一種,當然好壞或是完整與否就不一定了。 在這裡本書想要根據內部控制的三大目標來對讀者們說明,如果企業內部沒有一套好的內部控制,會產生什麼樣子的災難。 內部控制三大目標的第一個目標既然是營運的效果與效率,反面來看,如果企業沒有做好內部控制,企業的營運就會無法達到其效果與效率。那為什麼會因此沒有效果與效率呢?我們用最簡單的舉例方式來告訴大家。 A製造商的業務部門拿到了客戶的訂單,然後交給生產部門來報價給客戶好簽訂契約,但是因為內部溝通上的疏忽,造成生產部門根本不知道有訂單進來而未即時報價,最後因此喪失了這筆交易。這一筆交易可能是數百萬,或者是數千萬的訂單,對於A企業的營運影響至鉅。 讓我們來看看另一個例子,B企業的生產部門收到客戶的桌上型電腦訂單之後就趕緊報價,而且也順利的把客戶所要的產品生產出來了,事後卻發現做出來的電腦主機板與客戶所要求型號不相同,回頭調查時才發現原來是在設計圖的傳遞時發生了錯誤,搞混了各個客戶所提供的設計圖,B公司不但白白生產了一倉庫的電腦,可能還要吃上違約的官司呢!…
