  • How Costly is Eating Out

    Who doesn’t enjoy dining out? It’s convenient, and if you pick the right place to eat, delicious. Plus, with services like Uber Eats, you can have the food you would typically pick up delivered instead. Yet, dining out can be costly. How costly? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American household spends about $3,000 a year in restaurants. That’s $3,000 that could’ve potentially been used to fund retirement or even go on an exotic vacation. Knowing this, it would be great to pick up a new skill that would help you reduce some of your annual costs and help satisfy your appetite. That skill is cooking. The average meal at home costs $4 per person. Deciding to cook at home can save you on average $40 a month. Cooking is not only a great way to save money, but it’s also typically a healthier option. Make the decision to save some money by cooking at home. Your bank account will thank you.

  • GM to Halt Production at Several North American Plants Due to Chip Shortage

    Due to a chip shortage, General Motors Co. is stopping production at many North American factories and others are shutting down. GM also mentioned that three of their plants previously nonaffected by supply issues are going to be idled or have reduced output for up to two weeks. The models affected are popular midsize sport-utility vehicles. They include the Chevrolet Traverse SUV and the Cadillac XT5 and XT6 SUVs. Not only is GM dealing with chip shortages, but also at almost every major car company. The chips are important because they are put in software modules that controls anything from brakes to dashboard touch screens. Executives from Auto makers are predicting the shortage could last several more months and will continue to have to cut production. Not only is the chip shortage affecting the auto industry, but products like video games. Also, it is one of the reasons for backups at California ports, plant closures due to the Texas freeze and the ship stuck in the Suez Canal recently. President Biden met with a group of lawmakers to address the issue and top administration officials are going to meet next week. Despite low discounts on cars, U.S. vehicle sales in March was the second-highest level ever for that month. According to a dealership owner in southeast Michigan, customers are willing to pay more because they are getting more for their used vehicles. Dealerships have seen business increase as the restrictions decrease. However, the chip shortage reduced vehicle selection to 10% which will lower sales. GM has estimated the chip shortage will cost them up to $2 billion on pretax profit and $2.5B for Ford. The chip shortage has caused temporary layoffs of thousands of workers. They are entitled to unemployment aid and supplemental pay under the union’s labor contract. https://www.wsj.com/articles/gm-to-halt-production-at-several-north-american-plants-due-to-chip-shortage-11617893417?mod=business_lead_pos2

  • Andrew Long

    Andrew Long About Events Spartan Journal Jobs Member Resources WMA Podcast Search More Spartan Journal Producer My name is Andrew Long, and I am a Senior Finance major in the Broad College. I have been involved in the Wealth Management Association since I transferred to MSU back in Fall of 2019. I previously attended Northwood University where I studied business management and played soccer. I decided to join the association so I could meet likeminded students that wanted to learn more about finance. Not only did I find this group, but the atmosphere and the members encouraged me to become more active with WMA. During the summer of 2019 I interned with a wealth management firm G.L. Fisher Capital Management. The experience opened up my eyes to the finance industry and was a turning point for my academic career. I now have accepted a role as a Financial Analyst with Lumen Technologies Financial Leadership Rotational Program. While this Spring of 2021 will be my last semester on campus, I wanted to be more involved and help out with Spartan Journal team. I will be working with the Spartan Journal News contributors to post their content to the WMA YouTube channel, while also working with younger members as they become more familiar with the association. I highly encourage any student interested in business to join and expand their network with us. longand7@msu.edu https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrew-long-8b1865162
