What Are ‘Adverse Credit Cards'? / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Credit_Choices

David P Walker writes: Adverse credit cards are available for people who may not have access to the most competitive credit cards. This is usually because they have a bad credit rating, and are therefore considered by lenders to be in the ‘high risk’ category of borrowers. Adverse credit cards usually have higher interest rates and less features than other credit cards, making them an unattractive option for those who can take out other types of credit card. However, they can help to rebuild a good credit rating, if used sensibly.

Protect Your Wealth From the Government, Expatriate Your Wallet / Personal_Finance / Investing 2010

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTerry Coxon, contributing author of Casey Research’s ‘Going Global’ Special Report writes: If everything you own is held in your own name in your own country, then you are not merely exposed, you are vulnerable absolutely, to whatever decisions the government might make about how you should behave and who gets the wealth you've earned. Tomorrow's new government measure, which might land out of the blue, could be a law that affects everyone, or it could be a rule devised to deal with people like you. Or, it could be an administrative action aimed at you alone. In any case, with all your assets at home, you'd find out how the lobster feels when his trap is being hauled out of the water. Nothing he can do about it.

By: Amber_Dakar

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you’re in the market to buy a new home, be aware that the U.S. Treasury Department is considering a new mortgage fee to fund the backstops it gives for loans purchased through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Analysts say the fee may be up to 1.5 percent of the borrower’s mortgage, which would be a big increase from the current 0.25 percent that both Fannie and Freddie currently charge mortgage borrowers. Plus, it remains to be seen if this new charge would be in addition to that current charge!

2011: The Year Of The Tax Increase / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Snyder writes: Unless the U.S. Congress acts, there is going to be a massive wave of tax increases in 2011. In fact, some are already calling 2011 the year of the tax increase. A whole host of tax cuts that Congress established between 2001 and 2003 are set to expire in January unless Congress chooses to renew them. But with Democrats firmly in control of both houses that appears to be extremely unlikely.
