Stop Accumulating Additional Debt, 2011 To-Do List / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany people I’ve spoken with over the past 6 months or so have expressed extreme dissatisfaction with their individual and/or collective ability to affect change in government. Sure, there have been some small victories here and there, but by and large our biggest problems continue to rage on unabated. For quite some time I shared in their frustration, and still do, but have realized that sometimes the actions of the masses need to take place on a different level to change the bigger paradigms. To use some old adages, we shouldn’t throw stones from a glass house, and we should certainly tend to our own backyard before criticizing that of our neighbor. On this last day of 2010, let’s take a look at what we can do in our own financial lives to improve our situations. Let’s call it trickle-up responsibility.

Is Putin pitiable, or is the FT corrupt? / Personal_Finance / Mainstream Media

By: Eric_Kraus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReading the FT on Russia, what is interesting is not what they write – it is why they write it. A friend of T&B was told face-to-face about six months ago by an FT editor that, as a journalist here, one’s role has to be ”to write about how awful Russia is”. (While, admittedly, T&B does not know many FT journalists in Poland, Belgium or Mexico, we strongly suspect that they have an entirely different mandate. Only in Russia has the paper descended to outright advocacy…)

Liquidate IRAs and 401Ks or Suffer Grievous Losses / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Mac_Slavo

As government ramps up spending and continues its attempts to stimulate the US economy, Americans are being further burdened with an irreversible debt liability.

New Junior Cash ISA's to Replace Child Trust Funds / Personal_Finance / ISA's

How 40% Tax Payer Families Can Keep Child Benefit Using Pensions / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Firstly, virtually all of the mainstream press are WRONG in the assumption that the 40% tax band kicks in next tax year from £44,000 because they have failed to take into account tax changes announced in the June emergency budget that in effect reduces the higher rate tax band towards a rate of approx £42,500 (pending release of September RPI later this month).
