Future Of California HighSpeed Rail Looks Green
BERKELEY — A new analysis gives Californians good reason to be optimistic about the green credentials of Image courtesy of the California the state’s proposed High-Speed Rail Authority. high-speed rail project, due to begin construction in 2013 thanks to funding recently approved by state legislators. Arpad Horvath at the University of California, Berkeley, and Mikhail Chester at Arizona State University compared the future sustainability of California high-speed rail with that of competing modes of transportation, namely automobile and air travel. They determined that, in terms of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, a mature high-speed rail system wins out when it deploys state-of-the-art trains powered by greener electricity. This was true even after accounting for the emergence of more fuel-efficient airplanes and automobiles. The study, published July 26th in the journal Environmental Research Letters, comes three weeks after lawmakers authorized $4.7 billion in state funds, which freed up an additional

The APR is the cost of credit expressed as a yearly rate, including interest and certain fees. “Many people looking for a loan only focus on the dollars they’d pay each month instead of the APR and, because of that, they don’t realize how much the loan will cost and they could pay too much,” said Rae-Ann Miller, special advisor on consumer

More Americans Are Becoming Their Own Bosses
By: Joel Kotkin While the economy has been miserable for small business, and many larger ones as well, the ranks of the selfemployed have been growing. According to research by Economic Modeling Specialists International, the number of people who primarily work on their own has swelled by 1.3 million since 2001 to 10.6 million, a 14% increase. This rise is partially reflective of hard times, and many of the self-employed earn only modest livings in fields such as childcare and construction. However the shift to self-employment is likely to accelerate in the future, and into higherpaying professions, for reasons including the ubiquity of the Internet, which makes it easier for some types of business to use independent contractors, as well as the reluctance of large firms to hire fulltime employees with benefits. Urban analyst Bill Fulton, who has looked into this issue, concludes we may be seeing a fundamental change in how the economy operates. “Even though there may not be jobs in the

conventional sense, there is still work,” Fulton notes. “That’s the whole idea of the 1099 economy. It’s just a different way of organizing the economy.” If the 1099 economy is the wave of the future, which regions and industries are currently at the forefront? We turned to EMSI for the data. We looked at the change in self-employment numbers for the nation’s 30 largest metropolitan statistical areas from 2001 to the present, and also from 2008, when the economy first nosedived and people started to scramble. The results of EMSI’s research are fascinating, and somewhat surprising, perhaps giving us a glimpse of where the future of economic growth may be taking shape. The biggest changes have taken place in four metro areas where the number of self-employed workers expanded over 10% growth between 2008 and 2012. Two of them, Houston and Seattle, have done very well in our previous rankings of economic performance, and the other two, Phoenix and Riverside- San Bernardino, Calif., suffered grievously from the housing bubble. ■

$3.3 billion in federal funds, for the high-speed rail project. The system promises to link Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego with trains traveling at a top speed of 220 mph. The bill, signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown last week, allows initial construction on the 768-mile rail system to begin next year. “We’re showing that if this high-speed rail system is deployed, it is likely that California will reduce its transportation environmental footprint,” said Chester, who began this work as a UC Berkeley post-doctoral researcher. But to reap those environmental benefits, the state will have to wait until the system becomes fully operational, which could take an estimated 20-30 years after groundbreaking.

For instance, approximately 67 percent of infrastructure emissions attributed to high-speed rail are the result of cement production for concrete used in construction. “If the high-speed rail project uses low-CO2 concrete, it could reduce the infrastructure’s environmental footprint by 15 percent,” said Chester, now an assistant professor at Arizona State University with joint appointments there at the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, and the School of Sustainability. The new study updates a 2010 analysis by Chester and Horvath with newer, more realistic system descriptions, data and projections, including forecasts for cleaner electricity. ■ Read the study here: http://bit.ly/environabstract

For example, she said, payday loans (unsecured loans that borrowers promise to repay out of their next paycheck or regular income payment) and car-title loans (secured by the borrower’s car) “may be quick and easy sources of cash, but they also have an APR as high as 300 to 400 percent.” When you consider opening checking and savings accounts, compare the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) offered by several financial institutions. The APY expresses
the annual interest rate you will earn on a deposit account, depending on the frequency of compounding. However, keep in mind that fees — such as those for ATM withdrawals, account maintenance and checks returned because of insufficient funds — aren’t factored into the APY. Fees can make a big difference in how much you actually earn from money you have on deposit. You should be monitoring your credit reports to correct errors or omissions that can leave bad marks on your credit history.

Inaccuracies in your credit report can needlessly reduce your “credit score” and, in turn, may cost you hundreds of dollars each year due to higher interest rates on a loan or credit card and protect yourself against identity theft. Under federal law, you are entitled to one free credit report every year from each of the nation’s three major credit bureaus. To order your free reports or for more information, go to AnnualCreditReport.com or call toll-free 1-877-322-8228. Try to save more and spend less. First, if you don’t already have a monthly budget, consider preparing one to get a better handle on your income and expenses for necessities, such as housing, utilities, food and transportation. “This is how a budget can help you commit to saving a little money every month and splurging a little less,” said Kincaid. She also said that “a budget doesn’t have to be complicated or scary,” and that while there are budgets you can easily create on a computer, “a notebook and a pencil can be enough to get you started.” Keep banking costs down. With planning, you can sidestep some of the more costly fees and penalties. Examples: • With your checking account, avoid fees for insufficient funds and bounced checks. “Record every deposit and withdrawal in your checkbook — especially remember your debit card purchases and ATM withdrawals,” said Reynolds. “It is important to know how much money you have in your account so you won’t overdraw your balance.” Understand your FDIC insurance coverage so you can be fully protected if your bank fails. If you (or your family) have $100,000 or less in all of your deposit accounts at the same insured bank, you don’t need to worry about your insurance coverage. Your deposits are fully protected under federal law because the basic insurance coverage is $100,000 per depositor per insured institution. You also may qualify for more than $100,000 in coverage at one insured bank. For example, the money you have in your individually owned accounts (not including your retirement accounts) is insured up to $100,000 separately from your share of any joint accounts at the same bank. Deposits designated to pass to named beneficiaries upon the death of the owner, such as in payable-on-death accounts, also can be insured for more than $100,000 under certain circumstances. And, some retirement accounts (notably Individual Retirement Accounts) are insured up to $250,000. ■
