Tony Amaradio Says There Is a Right Debt Repayment Policy For Everyone

There are several well-tested methods for dealing with financial obligations

Aliso Viejo, CA - February 28, 2020 /MarketersMedia/ —

When the Federal Reserve Bank of New York released its third-quarter report related to the national household debt and credit, it noticed that the amount topped the highest levels recorded a decade earlier. $219 billion was added to the total, which reached $13.51 trillion. This was the 17th consecutive quarter of expansion, standing 21.2% above the post-crisis low recorded in mid-2013. While high levels of indebtedness in a nation are typically regarded with concern, it is worth taking into consideration the fact that they could be sending positive signals as well – an increase in household borrowing is indicative of confidence about the future. Moreover, the ability of US consumers to repay their obligations has improved significantly since the 2008 financial crisis due to low interest rates and sustained economic growth, as highlighted in a report by Moody’s Investors Service. Nevertheless, many households struggle to manage their debt burden, typically having to deal with mortgage, credit card, student, auto, and personal loans all at once, comments financial expert Tony Amaradio, adding that the right choice of repayment strategy can significantly lighten the load and ultimately eliminate liabilities.

There are several well-tested methods for dealing with financial obligations, and while most borrowers are probably aware of them, they find it difficult to select the one that best aligns with their goals. The so-called snowball and avalanche strategies are perhaps the best-known options, the first factoring in the amount to be repaid and the second focusing on interest rates, with payments prioritized on the basis of these parameters. With the snowball approach, borrowers start by eliminating the lowest balance and proceed upward, while the avalanche method involves the repayment of debt with the highest interest rate first and moving down the ladder. With credit card loans, in particular, a combination of the two can be implemented, this hybrid approach having certain benefits from a psychological point of view: as a study by the Harvard Business Review and HelloWallet found, morale is a critical motivator in debt repayment. Households dealing with multiple loans can benefit from a debt consolidation strategy, which not only simplifies matters but can reduce the interest rate for those with a good credit score.

While borrowers have a number of options, it can prove difficult to select the right one, especially since people are motivated by different things, Tony Amaradio points out. The snowball strategy would be suitable for those who are psychologically rewarded by immediate progress, while the avalanche method is for people concerned about costs or dealing with a large amount of high-interest debt. The hybrid approach offers the desired “quick win” but can also lead to substantial savings, whereas debt consolidation may not be possible for people with an impaired credit history. Since multiple factors come into play, the best course of action is to seek the advice of an expert debt consultant, who can evaluate all aspects of a given financial situation and recommend the optimal strategy.

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Apr 6, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Apr 6, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Apr 6, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Apr 6, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Apr 6, 2020

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...
