Moderate income growth at year-end helped U.S. consumers enter 1998 in good shape, but a closely watched gauge of U.S. manufacturing unexpectedly cooled in January as export orders slumped for the first time in two years, according to separate reports released Monday. Americans' personal income rose 0.4% in December, with spending nearly keeping pace by rising 0.3% during the holiday shopping season, the Commerce Department said.

Has Santa Monica, long regarded as a spawning ground for flaky notions, come up with another crazy idea? It's looking into lifting the legal minimum pay for several thousand workers in one section of the city to a relatively lofty $10.69 an hour and requiring their employers to provide health insurance. But this time around, Santa Monica might not be quite as off-the-wall as many people think. Its so-called living-wage proposal reflects a trend already gathering momentum nationally.

Retirees should carefully review the tax status of income on their pension or annuity payments to decide whether to permit tax withholding on these payments, according to the Internal Revenue Service. Federal income tax is now generally withheld from pension and annuity payments. However, this withholding is not compulsory; any person can apply for exemption. The payer of the pension or annuity payments will tell the retiree how to file for the exemption.

Northern and Southern California have long argued over which one has the best sports teams, nicer climate and most stunning scenery. When it comes to healthcare, however, there's little debate: It costs a lot less to be hospitalized in the Southland. On average, hospitals in Northern California's six most populous counties collect 56% more revenue per patient per day from insurance companies and patients than hospitals in Southern California's six largest counties, according to a Times analysis of state records.
