Why Unemployment Rates Matter to Your Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

My biological clock is ticking—as is yours and everyone else's. With each passing day, you are either moving closer to or further past the day you quit working full time. Baby boomers are retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day and will continue to do so for the next 17 years. Whether you count yourself among that group or not, understanding where economic data—such as unemployment rates and inflation—come from will make you a better investor and savvier retiree.

Newcastle BS 2.9% Best Current Fixed Rate Cash ISA March, April 2014 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The zero interest rate catastrophe for savers including Cash ISA depositors continues to persist for as long as the Bank of England can get away with government debt monetization and support of the bankrupt banks (Co-op the current bank teetering on the brink of collapse) via unlimited funding scheme that is now approaching its 2nd full year of the collapse in savings interest rates that began in May 2012 and soon accelerated into sub inflation rates of systemic theft as illustrated by the table below which shows the cash ISA rates offered by apparently the often reported on best buy accounts of the Halifax mega-bank that in reality crashed in response to the Bank of England's Funding for Lending Scheme that started in July 2012.

Maximizing Your Retirement Planning IRA / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

As working folks get closer to hanging up their spurs, it is easy to become overwhelmed. When should you take Social Security? What type of insurance do you need? Should you buy an annuity? Do you need nursing home insurance? Should you roll over your 401(k) into an IRA? The list goes on and on.

Retirement planning requires many irreversible decisions. We each need to get it right; however, what is right for us is not always right for someone else. And, in addition to basic number-crunching, we each make assumptions about life and politics—sometimes without even realizing it.

The Ty Cobb Approach to Retirement Investing / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

When baseball fans talk about players from the early 1900s, Babe Ruth is normally the first person mentioned. He was a great home-run hitter with 714 career home runs, a record that stood for almost 40 years. Only two men have surpassed it. Ruth struck out 1,330 times—a record that also stood for several decades.

Most people think of Ty Cobb as a gritty player who held the career stolen-base record for many years. But let’s look a bit deeper. Ty Cobb broke into major-league baseball in 1905 at the age of 19 and hit .240 his first season. For the next 23 seasons, he hit over .300.

Are Your Bank Savings Safe From Bail-Ins? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Raul_I_Meijer

I know you thought you’d seen some crazy stuff, but it’s going to get better, promise!

On the one hand you have Greek politicians claiming their economy is doing so well, they’ll present the troika with a big feel good surprise. On the other, Greek unemployment reached a new high at 28%, with youth unemployment now at 61.4%. That’s almost 2/3 of young people. What is to become of them?

Retirement Investing, Why 65 Is Not a Magic Number / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Is retirement really all it's cracked up to be? The answer depends on where you find yourself financially, emotionally, and health-wise come age 65 or so.

When we're young, we trade time for money and hope to stash away enough of it to later reverse the process and trade money for time. Ideally, we'd each have a few decades of independence before the grim reaper—or assisted living facility—comes knocking.

Prepare for When the New MyRA Becomes "TheirRA" / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: In his recent State of the Union Address, President Obama unveiled something new: a retirement savings account to "help" Americans build a nest egg, coining it the "MyRA."

Something immediately felt wrong about the proposal... but I couldn't put my finger on it.

So I researched the new MyRA and found details to help you understand just how it works.

Debt the Last Social Taboo? / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Don_Miller

Social taboos have dropped left and right since I was a young man raising a family, but one is unlikely to disappear any time soon: holding too much personal debt. But debt need not be a personal tragedy nor a badge of shame. For some, it is simply a practical problem with practical solutions. For others, however, it isn't even the real problem.

In the last few year I've watched two friends handle debt quite differently, and those differences illustrate the real taboo about debt that we seem to ignore. I've changed names and tweaked a few details to keep peace in the world, but what follows are essentially two true stories: those of Joe Able and Tom Baker.

Who Most Benefits From MyRAs: Savers Or The US Treasury? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dan_Amerman

By executive order of the President of the United States, as announced in the State of the Union address, there is now a new type of tax-advantaged retirement account.

These are the MyRAs, the user-friendly "my retirement accounts" for small investors, that are presented as being one part of the campaign to help close the income and wealth disparity gap in the US. And one of the issues that is identified as being part of that gap is that the poor and middle class have relatively little money in retirement accounts when compared to the wealthy and the upper middle class.

Insuring Yourself Against a Bankrupt Government / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Casey_Research

Spreading your political risk beyond one jurisdiction is the single most important financial step you can take today.

Having all your eggs in one basket only makes it easier for someone to grab them all. Internationalizing your assets makes it much harder for any particular government to control you or your money.

Americans Can Still Benefit from Tax Havens / Personal_Finance / Taxes

“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”–Benjamin Franklin

Laddering Adds Another Layer of Financial Protection for Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Laddering reminds most people of a strategy often used when owning multiple CDs. Back when interest rates made them worthwhile, if you were trying to arrange cash flow, you could stagger the maturity dates of your CDs so you always had one maturing in the near term. Longer-term CDs had better rates, but they tied up your money; laddering mitigated that problem.

Ten Pillars of Financial Independence / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Don_Miller

Young folks can usually digest a difficult message more easily when it comes from someone who is not: (a) their parent; (b) their teacher; nor (c) anyone else whose lectures they are sick of hearing. In that spirit, we're starting out 2014 with 10 ways people of any age can safeguard their financial independence. Please feel free to pass it along to anyone in your life who could use a nudge in the right direction from someone other than Mom and Dad.

Wealth is not gauged by how much money you make, but rather how much you keep. Accumulating wealth, regardless of your age, gives you options and independence. It's sad when people toil in jobs they hate because they need the money. Anyone in that position finds their employer controls their time and, sad to say, much of their happiness (or lack thereof).

While my passport is good for another eight years, I’m sure he has to replace his annually.

January Sales 2014 - Post Christmas 2013 High Street Sales List - Discount Voucher Codes? / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Shop-till-you-drop looks set to continue all the way into January which was once upon a time the true start date for the holiday sales season that over the decades has meandered its way towards the end of November. Though of course most of these early sales are bogus, for these 50% off sales amount to nothing more than the original prices as the real sales only began online Christmas Eve and in store on Boxing day. Even then consumers need to be on their guard because it was very difficult if not impossible to capitalise on most of the discounts promoted, for instance many of the goods that you may have been interested in at for say 60% off have mysteriously become out of stock!
