  • Proposed federal rules target for-profit colleges

    The Education Department proposed much-anticipated regulations last Friday that would cut off federal aid to for-profit college programs if too many of their students default on loans or don't earn enough after graduation to repay them.

  • Home prices increase 1.3% in May from April

    NEW YORK -- Home prices rose in May for the second straight month as federal tax incentives pulled more buyers into the market.

  • GM takes on subprime car loans but it's less risky

    DETROIT -- General Motors is getting into the subprime lending business. And that means taxpayers are, too.

  • 4 ways to overcome emotional investing

    CHICAGO -- Buying and selling stocks at just the wrong time is costly. Yet millions of investors make bad deals every time there is a major market swing.

  • Expert Insights: Residential real estate

His previous academic experience includes research and teaching positions at the University of North Texas and the University of California Santa Barbara, where he earned a doctorate in economics.

  • Insurance fund assessments, economic uncertainty hinder growth at credit unions

    San Diego credit unions -- along with a good portion of their peers -- are staying the course, battling and surviving continued weakness in the economy and the broader credit union industry.

  • Uncertainty remains about course of economy

    Monetary policy: Two words that can strike fear into the hearts and minds of bankers, brokers, investors and just about everyone involved in any financial decisions.

  • Construction spending up in some sectors

    Construction spending -- in San Diego and elsewhere in the nation -- is depressed compared to a few years ago, but can probably be best described as “uneven”: Residential and public projects are enjoying a lift, whereas the private commercial sector is still waiting for signs of life.

  • Reverse mergers may be gaining popularity in difficult IPO market

    The so-called initial public offering “window” is open once again, but subpar returns for those that have tried to go public and general market volatility has companies and investment bankers thinking twice: perhaps postponing the IPO or considering other options.

  • Small-cap investors know bigger not always better

    BOSTON (AP) -- Bigger usually offers more protection than smaller. Think of boats in rough seas, or planes in turbulence.
