Consumer Income Rising

Consumers' incomes have been rising rapidly enough, primarily from wage gains just over 4 percent, to support moderate spending gains. The negative wealth effect of lower stock prices has been partly offset by rapidly rising house prices in most regions of the country (except areas with a concentration of technology industries). Homeowners are tapping into their housing equity with "cash-out" refinancings using fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgages down to near 7.00 percent and 6.50 percent, respectively.
