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.

Student Loan Debt Slavery, Is College Worth It? / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic Collapse writes: Every single year, millions of young adults head off to colleges and universities all over America full of hopes and dreams. But what most of those fresh-faced youngsters do not realize is that by taking on student loan debt they are signing up for a life of debt slavery. Student loan debt has become a trillion dollar bubble which has shattered the financial lives of tens of millions of young college graduates. When you are just starting out and you are not making a lot of money, having to make payments on tens of thousands of dollars of student loan debt can be absolutely crippling. The total amount of student loan debt in the United States has now surpassed the total amount of credit card debt, and student loan debt is much harder to get rid of. Many young people view college as a "five year party", but when the party is over millions of those young people basically end up as modern day serfs as they struggle to pay off all of the debt that they have accumulated during their party years. Bankruptcy laws have been changed to make it incredibly difficult to get rid of student loan debt, so once you have it you are basically faced with two choices: either you are going to pay it or you are going to die with it.
