US personal income fell by 0.7 percent from a month earlier in October of 2020, following a downwardly revised 0.7 percent increase in the previous month and compared with market expectations of a flat reading. The decrease in government social benefits was mostly to blame because of a drop in Lost Wages Supplemental Payments, a Federal Emergency Management Agency program that provides wage assistance to individuals impacted by the pandemic. In contrast, compensation and proprietors’ income rose. On a positive note, personal spending increased 0.5 percent, following a downwardly revised 1.2 percent growth in September and slightly beating market forecasts of 0.4 percent. source: U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis
