Hotter days mean less cold cash for Americans, according to a new study matching 40 years of temperatures to economics. Days that averaged about 77 degrees ended up reducing people’s income by about $5 a day, when compared to days that were about 20 degrees cooler. A county’s average economic productivity decreases by nearly 1 percent for every degree Fahrenheit that the average daily temperature is above 59, says a new National Bureau of Economic Research working paper released Monday, Dec. 15, 2014.
