Man made suicides: People commiting suicide as 350,000 families have been evicted from their homes since Spain's property market crashed in 2008

Spanish banks are to suspend evictions for the next two years for the
most vulnerable people.

An estimated 350,000 families have been evicted from their homes since
Spain's property market crashed in 2008, at the beginning of the
economic crisis.

The announcement comes three days after a woman in northern Spain took
her own life, just before she was due to be evicted from her home.

It is not clear how they will decide who the most vulnerable people are.

The announcement came from the Spanish banking association, AEB.

A 53-year-old woman jumped out of her fourth-floor flat on Friday as
local officials arrived to evict her from her home.

Another man in the city of Granada, whose house was also due to be
repossessed, apparently committed suicide last month.

There have been demonstrations in Spain, with an organisation called
Platform for Mortgage Victims blocking access to houses to prevent
evictions.

The Spanish government is meeting the opposition on Monday to discuss
new regulations for evictions.

Juliane Kokott, the European Court of Justice's advocate general, has
criticised the current rules on evictions, saying they violate
European consumer protection rules.

Future of oil is bleak. By 2030, 95% of people may not own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry

A futurist and clean energy expert, Toni Seba, has predicted that electric vehicles would destroy the global oil industry after a decade. By 2030, 95% of people won't own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry, he says.

Boeing and JetBlue Airways have announced they would begin selling a hybrid-electric commuter aircraft by 2022. Planned by start-up Zunum Aero, the small plane would seat up to 12 passengers and reduce travel time and cost of trips under 1,600 km.

PPF interest rate cut to 7.9% but are other investment options better? Here's a comparison

The Public Provident Fund (PPF) will now offer 7.9% but experts say it is still a good option for investors. Given that consumer inflation is down to 3.65%, the real rate of return of the PPF is a healthy 4.25%. 

"This is quite impressive for an option that offers assured returns," says Amol Joshi, Founder, PlanRupee Investment Service. "Investors should continue to take advantage of this long-term tax-free product," he adds. 

Even if you compare the PPF rate with the 10-year government bond yield, the scheme is attractive. "The 10-year bond yield is a better benchmark for PPF than consumer inflation," says Manoj Nagpal, CEO, Outlook Asia Capital
Currently, the 10-year bond yield is around 6.8% and the PPF at 7.9% makes it for a premium of 110 basis points. "Historically, the average premium has been around 75 bps. So, the PPF investor is today earning a higher real return," says Nagpal. Even so, some investors may be feeling disappointed by the cu…
