Don’t Expect a Life Vest to Save You from Low Interest Rates / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Don_Miller

Touring the Alamo, presenting on how retirees can succeed in a crisis economy, and picking the brain of one of the world’s top economists, Dr. Lacy Hunt, about the future of low interest rates were among the highlights of my recent trip to San Antonio for the Casey Research Summit. In addition to authoring two books and countless articles for leading financial publications, Dr. Hunt is executive vice president of Hoisington Investment Management Company, a firm that manages $5.4 billion.

Lacy is also a favorite speaker of mine because in addition to being a terrific economist capable of running rings around the likes of Alan Greenspan, he can relate the big economic picture to average investors. He rates very high on the common-sense scale—a good philosophical fit for the Miller’s Money team.

The Single Most Important Lesson from the Casey Summit / Personal_Finance / Investing 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Louis James, Chief Metals & Mining Investment Strategist

At our San Antonio summit, Rick Rule gave a talk that, as always, was well reasoned, packed with facts, and powerfully cogent. His message was simply that bear markets are for buying and bull markets are for selling—and in the future, resource investors with staying power would look back on the current market as “the good old days” when they were able to buy great stocks cheap.

Don’t Be a Freedom Wimp: Live from the Casey Research Summit in San Antonio / Personal_Finance / Learning to Invest

By: Casey_Research

By Doug Hornig, Senior Editor

On Day Two of the Casey Research Summit in San Antonio, the emphasis was decidedly on the “deep state,” as Doug Casey termed it: what it is, what it’s doing, and how to thrive despite its ubiquitous reach.

The deep state begins with government, an institution Doug describes as intrinsically evil and destructive. That’s because it’s empowered by enforced coercion—one of only two ways in which humans interact with one another (the alternative being voluntary cooperation).

5 Factors That Impact Your Credit Score / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Submissions

Boris Dzhingarov writes: Your ability to obtain credit is crucial to securing many of the biggest purchases in life, and this ability is largely dependent on your credit score. In many cases, the higher your score, the cheaper your credit will be. The key to maintaining a healthy score involves knowing exactly what factors contribute - and here are five of the most common.

£15K Cash ISA Limit Fails to Ignite Savings Industry / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: MoneyFacts

Not even the biggest hike in tax-free allowance since the launch of ISAs has stirred the savings market from its apathy. Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that the ISA sector has remained largely subdued and the majority of rates have actually fallen further since the increased allowance was announced.

Getting the Most Value from Your “Geriatric Cruiser” / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Don_Miller

For many a car lover, retiring rich requires the end of a lifelong love affair. I empathize with them all; I’ve had my own romance over the last 50-plus years.

Cars have a special resonance for people of my generation. George Lucas’ classic coming of age film American Graffiti is proof positive of that. As teens we flocked to auto dealers when new models came out and fantasized about actually being able to own our favorite. And let’s face it: cool cars were chick magnets. In our 20s and 30s, with the help of a friendly finance company, those dreams became reality, and every few years we’d get the new car itch again.

UK Inflation Falls But Savers Continue to Get Raw Deal / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Inflation figures released today show that the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) fell from 1.9% to 1.6% during July.

To beat inflation, a basic rate taxpayer at 20% needs to find a savings account paying 2% per annum, while a higher rate taxpayer at 40% needs to find an account paying at least 2.67%.

If Mr. Rogers Ruled Wall Street / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Wall Street is “rigged.” That’s the word Michael Lewis, author of the bestseller Flash Boys, is spreading among the news networks, and it’s produced a vast outcry in the financial community.

Really? As Gordon Gekko, the unscrupulous corporate raider in the ‘87 classic Wall Street, says, “Come on, pal. Tell me something I don’t know.”

There’s a lot to learn from Gekko, who spends the bulk of the film demanding a young stockbroker named Bud Fox bring him information—information no one else can or will deliver. A few Gekko-isms should jolt your memory of the movie:

Your Insurance Company Lands in Rehab—Will Your Annuity Survive? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Your insurance company probably won’t go under; however, one might have said the same of AAA bonds in 2007. As many investors found out, sometimes the unlikely suddenly becomes your very own nightmare.

In 2012 the Financial Guaranty Insurance Company with $2.1 billion in assets failed. Also, in 2009 the Shenandoah Life Insurance Company with $1.7 billion in assets went under. In 2008, Standard Life Insurance Company of Indiana with $2 billion in assets collapsed as well. Although these failures weren’t all national front-page news like the AIG fiasco, anyone who owns an annuity or is thinking of buying one should take note.

Need-to-Know Tips for Buying Annuities… And Knowing When They’re Not For You / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

You're probably something of an expert in your own field—and that field probably isn't insurance or annuities. How, then, can you work through the minefield of clauses, guarantees, and pages of small print? Here are nine ways to start.

While you may feel uncomfortable doing this, you're the one putting down thousands of dollars, and you have every right demand this. Remember: caveat emptor! It's the buyer who must beware; you must protect yourself. Ultimately, the language in the annuity contract is what matters, but it doesn’t hurt to memorialize your verbal agreement with the agent in writing.

If you’re about to become a college student, if you’re already a college student, or if you’re simply in debt and need more credit and plan on becoming a student again, you’re in luck.

Financial services giants Discover Financial Services Inc. (NYSE: DFS), Capital One Financial Corp. (NYSE: COF), Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC), Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C), and U.S Bancorp (NYSE: USB), to name a few players in the student credit game, are bending over backward for you.

When All You Have Left Is the Cost of Breakfast at McDonald’s / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

When I was 20 years old, I sat through my first day of a business law course at Northwestern University. The professor began by writing two words on the blackboard (in the prehistoric days of blackboards and chalk): Caveat emptor. He raised his voice and said, “Let the buyer beware!” I’m here to echo his warning, but this time it’s about annuities.

Annuities are at the top of the list of complicated products that often profit insurance companies without adequately compensating the buyer in return. Put plainly, sometimes you don’t get what you thought you paid for.

Fake Pensions - They’re Lying To Us / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: John_Rubino

Most people learn by the age of 10 or so that making promises is easier than keeping them. That’s why really big promises like corporate pensions and national retirement/health care programs are so easy to screw up. Offering someone a cushy retirement or a lifetime of healthcare feels great and generates massive goodwill from the recipient. So elected officials and corporate executives tend to over-promise in the moment and leave the hard part — actually making good on those promises — for their successors.

New £15,000 Cash ISA Interest Rates Ahead of 1st July - What to Do? / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Many savers will have delayed opening a cash ISA for the current tax year so as to best capitalise on the the new cash ISA allowance of near triple the existing amount of £5,490 to £15,000. However, It should not come as a much of a surprise that after more than 5 years of an artificial highly manipulated UK interest rates market for the primary purpose for funneling tax payer cash into the bankrupt banks (QE) that the already extremely low savings rates have have yet again been cut ahead of new ISA's going live on 1st of July.

Wonga Pay Day Loans Outfit Gets a Slap on the Wrist Instead of Prison / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Apparently 45,000 customers of the Wonga payday loans outfit are going to receive a flat £50 as compensation for being conned by fake threatening legal letters from law firms that did not even exist, which went on to include charges for bogus legal fees that is tantamount to fraud that caused huge distress for tens of thousands of Wonga customers, that instead of now facing the full weight of the law has instead been asked to compensate its victims for approx £2.6 million compared to Wonga's annual profits of £84 million which reeks of an FCA regulator that seems even more inept and toothless than the FSA it replaced.

5 Women Who Made Me Rich and What They Can Teach You / Personal_Finance / Money Making

By: Don_Miller

My grandmother refused to share the heart-wrenching details until I was in the Marine Corps. I’d heard bits and pieces about my ne’er-do-well father but didn’t fully grasp the devastation he’d left behind until Grandmother spilled the story with tears in her eyes:

Your father never worked. After you were born he stole all the money in the house, vanished, and was never seen again. Fortunately your mother had gone back to work earning $8 per week.

However, one of the worst parts was: the store repossessed your baby carriage because your father stole the money your mother had saved to pay it off.

Melly Abruzz writes: On April 1, 2014, the regulations governing payday lenders in the UK was transferred from the Office of Fair Trade (OFT) to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).  The gist of the regulatory shift was that payday lenders are now obligated to conduct thorough affordability and credit checks. Other changes include a cap in loan rollover, and pointing borrowers in the direction of free debt advice.
