Enough Money to Not Worry / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Don_Miller

Several readers have asked why I use CDs in so many examples. With good reason, they wondered if I was suggesting buying CDs, which made them question my wisdom and sanity. If anyone thinks that's what I'm recommending, I must have been remiss in conveying my message.

On that note, I'd like to make one thing clear: I am absolutely opposed to buying any CD denominated in US dollars. (And since we're clearing things up, I should also mention again that I am wholly opposed to TIPS.)

When Is Insurance a Good Investment? / Personal_Finance / Insurance

By: Don_Miller

A friend recently asked about a life insurance policy with a guaranteed cash buildup far in excess of what he could earn on a CD or long-term Treasury. What did I think?

During my working career, I had many insurance companies as clients. When I asked similar questions, I always got the same response: with any "combination" product — that is, an insurance policy with an investment component — consider each part individually.

Captaining Your Own Retirement Ship / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

When Kerry Lutz turned off the recorder after interviewing me for the Financial Survival Network a few weeks ago, we started talking about a common challenge we both face: getting an entire generation to wake up and see that we have a real problem.

Most seniors and savers readily admit that interest rates are terrible and don't keep up with inflation, yet – even with the terrible squeeze this puts on their pocketbooks – Kerry and I know of too many people who think their nest egg will manage itself. After working a lifetime to build up their portfolios, many retirees are looking for a "set it and forget it" type of investment that no longer exists.

Best Cash ISA to Beat Funding for Lending Fraud Against Savers / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The 2012-13 tax year will soon be ending which means that those that have not already utilised their annual allowance of £5,640 for earning perpetual tax free interest on savings will lose it.

Unfortunately Britain's bankrupt bailed out banks continue to be supported by tax payers and Bank of England rampant money printing to an unlimited extent which via mechanisms such as the Funding for Lending Scheme is impacting severely on savers in terms of depressing UK savings interest rates whilst Quantitative Easing monetization of UK government debt and the financing of fictitious profits that form the basis for bonuses, that are even paid out when the Banking crime syndicate members such as RBS and Lloyds TSB announce losses results in the Inflation stealth theft of purchasing power of savings and earnings.

Payday Loans Get Criticised – Again / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Submissions

Brent Wayne writes: Payday loans always seem to be being criticised and this time it is because there is a feeling that students are being unfairly targeted for them. A payday loan is an expensive way to borrow because it is aimed at people with a poor credit record, which may mean that they have been in debt a lot in the past or that they have no history of borrowing. It is felt that these people are the ones that are most vulnerable in society and so they should not be being targeted.

How to Tell If You’re Rich / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: One of the biggest points of contention in the last election was whether the rich pay their fair share of taxes. Polls show the majority of voters don’t believe they do.

Of course, this begs the questions: Who is “rich” and what is “fair?”

Answers are largely a matter of opinion. But here is a fact: IRS figures show that the top 10% of income earners make 43% of all the income and pay 70% of all the taxes. Is that fair? If not, how much should they pay: 75%… 90%… all of it? And how about the now widely recognized fact – thanks to Mitt Romney’s secret videographer – that 47% of Americans don’t pay any income taxes. Is that fair? Opinions will vary.

UK Pension Annuity Income Suffers Biggest Fall Since 1998 / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: MoneyFacts

New research by Investment Life and Pensions Moneyfacts has revealed that the average annual income generated by a standard annuity for a 65-year old male fell by 11.5% during 2012. This is the biggest annual fall since 1998, when annuity income fell by an average of 13.7% (see Table 1 below).

The equivalent annuity income for a female dropped by 6.1% in 2012, a fall that was cushioned by the uplift that females received on the switch over to gender neutral pricing from 21 December 2012.

Halifax illustrates Cash ISA Savings Catastrophe, Which Best ISA Now? / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBritain's savers continue to fight a losing battle to maintain purchasing power of savings following the financial crash of four years ago since which time savings interest rates have tended to languish below even the official highly suspect CPI inflation rate, that never reflects the rising cost of peoples weekly shops. Britain's whole savings market reeks of being a fraudulent enterprise that exists purely to transfer wealth from savers over to the banks and government (taxes). In which respect cash ISA's offered some hope to at least avoid the tax element of the stealth theft underway.
