Amex Travel & Entertainment Spending Drops Sharply

Amex reported that its global consumer billed business fell 20% year-over-year (YoY) in Q2 2020 after dropping 2% YoY in Q1. Business Insider reports the coronavirus pandemic has increasingly hurt its volume. Amex's plunge is due to a precipitous drop in spending on travel and entertainment (T&E), which plummeted nearly 100% YoY in April. T&E was still down about 70% YoY in the first half of July. Meanwhile, Amex's non-T&E spending grew 5% YoY in the first half of July.

Wages in the US have not kept up with the pace of growth in the gross domestic product, or GDP, as they used to in the 1950s and 1960s. In fact, a new report finds that the median salary would have been as high as $102,000 for a full-time employee if wages increased at the same pace as GDP. According to Business Insider, the median income right now is half that, at $50,000. The average wage of 44% of workers before the pandemic was as low as $18,000.
