By: MoneyFacts

Data from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that the savings market is showing encouraging signs of improvement. The number of rate rises now outweighs the number of reductions for the third month running.

Savers Maximise the Personal Savings Allowance for Bigger Returns / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

As a new tax year approaches, savers may well be readying their cash to invest in a new ISA, but the latest research by Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals why savers should still consider maximising their Personal Savings Allowance (PSA) for bigger returns.

Since April 2016, savers have been given an individual Personal Savings Allowance to earn a portion of savings income or interest tax-free, with basic rate (20%) tax payers given a £1,000 allowance and higher rate (40%) taxpayers getting £500. This momentous change means that now most taxpayers (estimated at 95%) no longer pay tax on their savings interest.

Is Political Betting on the Rise? / Personal_Finance / Gambling

By: Submissions

With Brexit, the subsequent resignation of David Cameron and the election of Donald Trump as US President, last year was undoubtedly an interesting year for politics. You could make a point that the last 12 months or so have generated more interest in politics than ever before.

With all the interest and media coverage, there's one area of politics that often gets somewhat overlooked; it's betting markets. Amongst the plethora of huge sporting events regularly being promoted by bookmakers, we often ignore the undoubted value that exists in the political betting market.

It’s impossible to plan for unexpected expenses, so those caught by surprise with breakdowns of white goods or even the necessity to replace a car will likely be hard-pressed to cover the cost at short notice.

I think most of you intuit that I’m not like the normal guy out there. I think outside the box, analyze everything, respect and revere cycles as much as I hate them for their downside and discipline.

The truth is, I’m an entrepreneur, more than I am an economist. In fact, I think economics is mostly a load of B.S., and there are only three classical economists I pay any attention to: Dr. Lacy Hunt, Steve Keen, and Robert Shiller.
