The Big Short Movie Review / Personal_Finance / Reviews

By: James_Quinn

"The truth is like poetry, and most people ***** hate poetry."

The Big Short opens nationwide today. But it happened to have one showing last night at a theater near me. My youngest son and I hopped in the car and went to see it. I loved the book by Michael Lewis. The cast assembled for the movie was top notch, but having the director of Anchorman and Talledaga Nights handle a subject matter like high finance seemed odd.

By: MoneyFacts

Santa Claus…. Where’s My Interest? / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Data from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that rate reductions in the savings market are now outweighing rate rises for the first time since daily rate change monitoring began.*

In the month of November, Moneyfacts recorded 36 savings rate rises, with only one deal posting a significant increase of 0.80%. Disappointingly, these rises were eclipsed by the 73 rate reductions that took place over the same period, with some rates falling by a massive 0.86%.

By: MoneyFacts

Christmas is just around the corner and our annual festive splurging is starting to step up. But with households expected to spend an average of £614.96* on Christmas this year, many are wondering why they didn’t put more money aside for the festivities.

By: Submissions

Veselina Dzhingarova writes: A look at the buying process and how and why consumers make the choices they do.

Most businesses, especially small businesses, don’t pay much attention to why buyers buy. According to Allen Stanley, President of Best Attorney Rankings “Many go about their business with an attitude of providing a good product with good customer service at a fair price. “ While that seems reasonable enough, a better understanding of the buying process and how and why consumers make the choices they do can be extremely beneficial for any size business.

Andrew Snyder writes: For income investors, times have rarely been harder. But Obama may have just accidentally created a lucrative solution.

We all know the problem. The Fed.

Larissa James writes: When operating an accounting firm, it’s easy to get lost in routines and habits. And while it’s obviously important to focus on changing tax laws, evolving accounting procedures, and industry trends, you can’t forget about the basics.

By: MoneyFacts

The latest research by Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that credit card providers are anticipating the effects of the upcoming EU cap on interchange fees by taking a long, hard look at their credit card fees, rewards and interest rates.

On 9 December, credit and debit card processing fees, which are paid by a retailer’s bank to the cardholder’s bank for each purchase, will be capped at 0.30% and 0.20% respectively. The idea behind the change is that businesses will no longer have to pass excessive fees onto their customers.

Earnings - Pulling Out All the Stops / Personal_Finance / Wages

By: John_Mauldin

By Jared Dillian

When I was a teenager, I had a different sort of part-time job. I was a church organist.

Actually, it was the best job ever because I was something of a piano prodigy as a child. Around age 12, my parents and I had to make a conscious decision about whether I was going to pursue a career in music. I decided not to, which has greatly reduced the amount of Ramen noodles I have eaten over the years.
