In 2011, one year after its passage, Duffy told the Washington Times that the full name of the act – the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act – is “misleading” because it “stimulated nothing but more government debt” and “fails to actually reform Wall Street or protect consumers,” citing the cost in both labor hours and money as evidence that he believed the pendulum had swung too far the other way.Representative Al Green (D-Texas), Ranking Member of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, defended Dodd-Frank in 2013 by saying that “With reference to Dodd-Frank, Dodd-Frank provides a better way. Prior to Dodd-Frank, we had in essence two means by which we could deal with a systemic crisis – a crisis that involved exigent circumstances. These two ways were one, bankruptcy. Bankruptcy works, but it did not work for Lehman (the investment firm that filed for bankruptcy in 2008, the largest filing in the nation’s history); and two, bailouts. Bailouts are not the preferred choice because the public thinks somehow, and I agree, tax dollars ought not be utilized to bail out these large institutions.”Duffy has also made repeated attempts to reform the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which was created in 2011 out of the passage of Dodd Frank. Last month, a Duffy-sponsored bill passed by a 401 to 2 vote in the House. H.R. 1265, known as the Bureau Advisory Commission Transparency Act,  calls for each advisory committee and subcommittee of the CFPB to be subject to the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, making the proceedings of those committees open to the public.Other Duffy-sponsored legislation attempting to reform the CFPB is currently pending. Duffy introduced several other bills in early March as part of a comprehensive reform proposal. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honealast_img read more

Shoppers show optimism

first_imgShoppers are becoming more optimistic regarding the future, according to a new survey.The IGD ShoppperVista, a survey of more than 1,000 shoppers, found that, in January, 47% believe they will be worse off in the year ahead – but that this was down from 61% a year ago.Joanne Denney-Finch, chief executive, IGD, said: “While some of these changes are slight, they do represent a shift in shopper sentiment that should be widely welcomed.”The study also found that 40% now believe their personal economic situation will be “about the same” over the next 12 months, up from 29% a year ago. And, the lowest numbers of shoppers to date expect food prices to get much more expensive over the next 12 months – 21%, down from 33% a year ago.Denney-Finch added: “A growing number of shoppers seem to believe that the worst is behind them. They have adapted to the new economic reality and are aware that UK inflation may have peaked. Rising food, fuel and utility prices are the main factors that shoppers fear will make them worse off in the future, so good news in this area is helping improve shopper confidence.“The economic environment remains challenging and we expect 2012 to be a rollercoaster ride for many shoppers. However, with more people becoming used to the way things are, they are focusing again on values, with 34% saying that quality is extremely important when choosing where to shop for food and groceries – the highest level for more than a year.”last_img read more

Northfield Savings Bank rated ‘A Best Performing Bank’ by Highline Financial

first_imgNorthfield Savings Bank,Highline Financial recently released its quarterly bank performance report. Northfield Savings Bank was rated a ‘Best Performing Institution.’The Highline Rating is calculated on a quarterly basis using four key ratios (capital adequacy, asset quality, earnings strength and liquidity) and encompasses both current and historical data. It compares banks on a national and regional basis, and by asset size. In addition to rating banks, Highland ranks the states in terms of the overall quality of the banks domiciled in each state. Vermont was ranked as one of the top four states nationally, along with Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Nebraska.‘Consistent high performance has been the hallmark of Northfield Savings Bank,’ remarked Thomas N. Pelletier, President and CEO. ‘Our continuing success is predicated on an outstanding staff, and the loyalty of our customers, as well as adherence to strong operating standards. Northfield is very pleased to be rated highly. We are grateful to operate in Vermont and proud of the Vermont banking industry’s strong position nationally.’The Highline Rating has been used for rating banks since 1985. Originally developed by Sheshunoff Information Services, it was first known as the Sheshunoff Rating. Over the last 25 years, the Highline Rating has undergone periodic evaluations and improvements to ensure its effectiveness as a strong indicator of a bank’s financial health.Northfield Savings Bank was founded in Northfield, Vermont in 1867 by a schoolmaster and haberdasher who believed a local community bank was needed. More than 143 years later, the Bank continues this community-minded tradition, and has grown to become the second largest bank headquartered in the State. Also known for its role as a corporate citizen, Northfield Savings Bank proudly donates 10% of profits to Vermont community organizations, totaling at least $300,000 per year. Northfield Savings Bank operates 13 branches throughout central Vermont and Chittenden County.

Serbia 0-2 Brazil: Five things we learned

first_imgBrazil avoided a shock result that had earlier seen Germany knocked out of the World Cup by defeating Serbia to finish top of Group E and book a last-16 tie against Mexico.COUTINHO STEPS UP AGAINNeymar is the poster boy of this Brazil squad and a lot is expected from him. However, Phillipe Coutinho is fast establishing himself as Brazil’s main man. He has already scored two goals and came up with a fine pass which split open the Serbian defence for the first goal. Coutinho is really having an excellent tournament.BRAZIL’S APPROACH TO THE GAMETite has instilled a less adventurous style of play. Under Tite, Brazil has become a bit conservative and is very well organised. The players are tactically more aware as they are not easily found out of position. They do not play an all-out attacking football like we have seen in the past. The build-up play is a bit slow but the pace changes when they get into the defensive third of their opponents. When the ball gets to their defensive third, they defend with 5 players [Casemiro joins the defenders] and rely on the pace of the attacking quartet of Neymar, Coutinho, Willian and Gabriel Jesus during counter attacks. The good thing about Brazil’s set up under Tite is that it reduces their susceptibility to counter attacks from their opponents.SERBIA’S BLUNT ATTACK The Serbians were slow and predictable when they launched their attacks. Due to Brazil’s compactness in the middle, the Serbians were forced wide. Brazil’s defence was very well organized and they dealt very well with the crosses from Dusan Tadic, Antonio Rukaniva, Aleksandar Kolarov and Filip Kostic. It is not surprising that out of 10 goal attempts from Serbia, only 2 were on target. In truth, it was a slow and below par performance from the Serbians.TITE’S TACTICAL CHANGEIn the opening 10 minutes of the second half, Serbia was on the front foot as they dominated the midfield and pegged back the Brazilians. In response, Tite replaced Paulinho with Fernandinho in the 68th minute. The introduction of Fernandinho proved timely as it enabled Brazil to regain control of the game. NEYMAR, NEYMAR, NEYMARNeymar needs to stop his “fancy” football and be more decisive in order to score more goals. He had a couple of chances to get on the score sheet but his over-elaboration on the ball let him down. Neymar is a player with great talent and ability but he needs to realise when he needs to be stylish and when he needs to be direct. When he sorts that out, the goals will flow. —Follow the World Cup with the Multimedia Group!
