The Great Cash ISA Market Split, Current Top Accounts / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: MoneyFacts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere was a time when you didn’t have to struggle with the concept of cash ISAs. They are tax-free and all you need to look for is the best rate. However, new parameters are being quietly set which mean that in future we will all need to delve deeper than just rate alone.  

Sylvia Waycot, spokesperson for Moneyfacts.co.uk, said:

“This ISA season Moneyfacts has seen a growing trend of ISAs launched which refuse to accept transfers in.

Revisiting the Physical Risks of Debt / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne foundational piece of advice here at TAE as been to get out of debt and stay of debt - not only because the monetary costs of such debt will grow, but also because debt can be used as a means of physical repression and enslavement. It gives public (government) and private institutions the sufficient amount of leverage they need to take control of both your possessions and your body, with the latter being a much more pronounced risk during a period of credit contraction. Here are a few snippets about this issue from Our Depraved Future of Debt Slavery (Part II):

Doing the Roth IRA Conversion Arithmetic / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Terry_Coxon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTerry Coxon, Casey Research writes: It's clear to me, even though it may not be clear to you, that unless there is something very unusual about your situation, if you have a traditional IRA, you should pay the tax now and convert it to a Roth IRA. Not just maybe, but definitely. Not just for a small advantage but for a big one. If you don't convert today, you'll ultimately surrender much more to the tax collector. You'll be throwing money away. And you'll keep throwing it away. It's a result neither of us wants.

Child Benefit Cut Cliff Edge Tapered, Middle Class Can Continue to Have Babies / Personal_Finance / UK Tax & Budget

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs widely expected, George Osbourne performed a major u-turn today on the proposed cliff edge Child Benefit cuts that would have seen any family with a higher rate tax payer (Gross income of £42k) have their child benefit scrapped (£2,450 per year for a 3 child family) whilst a family with two joint earners on £41k per annum (total £82k) would have retained their child benefit payments in full.

How Savers Can Get 10% Yields Without Buying a Single Stock? / Personal_Finance / Investing 2012

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Alex Daley, Casey Research : The average interest rate for a savings account today is 0.45%. It wasn't that long ago that one could easily earn 5% in a well-chosen savings account, like those offered by ING Direct, or bump that up by a point or two by putting money away in a CD. Thanks to the largesse of our Federal Reserve and the antics of bankers around the country and world, those days are over, probably for a very long time. Interest rates are at an all-time low, and they look poised to stay there for a while. It's just about impossible for a saver to find the kind of yield that will beat inflation, let alone be enough to provide an income one can live on.

The Destruction of Savings by Inflation / Personal_Finance / Inflation

By: Submissions

Alasdair Macleod writes: In the past, insurance companies and pension funds have been keen to advertise the benefit of compounding arithmetic for savings. Over the last 30 or 40 years the rate has been lifted by inflation, but to understand the cost inflation brings you have to consider the whole savings cycle: not just the accumulation stage, but also annuity values in retirement. Furthermore, the historical experience of a typical working life should be compared with a theoretical sound-money alternative.
