Morning Jolt: Cost of raising a child goes up
In the news
A report by the Department of Agriculture says that the average cost of raising a child until age 18 (so not including college) in the U.S. is now $241,080 for a middle-income family. That number is up 3 percent from 2011 and 23 percent since 1960. Meanwhile, salaries are not commensurate with the increase, not surprisingly.
The Dow Jones opened at 15,337.66 after finishing down 113.35 points Wednesday.
