Consumers should not bury their heads in the sand over debt / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Submissions

To coincide with the first ever Financial Capability Week, the Credit Services Association (CSA) has issued some simple guidance around debt, and particularly how to avoid becoming a case of ‘mistaken identity’ and how to resolve the matter should it occur.

·       Keep creditors up-to-date with current contact details: If you move, change phone number, email address, or even change your name, inform all of your creditors, including your Local Authority. Most problems start when a creditor is unable to reach the customer at the last known contact address. This means that vital correspondence might never be received.

By: Jeff_Berwick

The battle for a cash-only world is getting hotter. The latest battlefront? India.

The latest rupee news? Outrageous.

Points Reward Credit Cards that Become ‘Pointless’ / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

Shoppers that frequently pay by card might decide to open a reward credit card to use as an alternative to their debit card, so that they can earn points every time they spend. However, not all cards are as rewarding as they may seem.

A points scheme is useful for those who want to gain a little extra by turning the points into vouchers or other rewards, but sometimes these rewards can take a long time and a significant spend to add up to anything worthwhile. In addition, some cards will charge higher rates of interest on purchases than could be achieved elsewhere, so if shoppers are not careful, the interest could outweigh any benefits.

The Fed Destroyed US Boomers’ Retirement Dreams / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: John_Mauldin

The more I think about where the “monetary policy community” of academic elites has brought us, the angrier I get. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this passionately upset about something.

Savers have Little to look forward to as Interest Rate Cuts Keep Coming / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

The Fed Put a 50% Tax on Your Retirement Plan / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: John_Mauldin

If a politician said he thought he should tax the income from your retirement plan, right now, at 50% (no matter where you are in the retirement process, that would certainly hurt the ability of your portfolio to compound), what would you think (other than that he was completely Looney Tunes)?

But that's exactly what the Federal Reserve has done by keeping interest rates low.

Pension Shortfalls Could Be 4X To 7X Greater Than Reported / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dan_Amerman

  • The reported shortfall for the California Public Employees Retirement System (Calpers) is $139 billion - but that is based upon investment assumptions that may be unlikely in current markets.
  • As developed using a 40 year financial model and recent actual results, the real present value shortfall could be in the $500 billion to $1 trillion range, which is 4X to 7X as great as reported.
  • Calpers is used as a real world example to explore nationwide issues that could change our financial futures - and our choices - as investors, taxpayers and pension beneficiaries.

UK Petrol and Diesel Pump Prices Rip off Investigation Call / Personal_Finance / Gas - Petrol

By: Submissions

FairFuelUK Campaign: In the last month as the Brent oil price in Sterling has fallen 9.5% or £3.67 per barrel, wholesale diesel fell only 1.8% with petrol, in complete contrast, rising bewilderingly by 1.6%. We are reliably told that the average independent garage should reflect oil and wholesale price changes in just 7 days. True to type, in reality this continues not to be the case. With such significant falls in oil seen since 18th August, pump prices for diesel have instead been hiked by 1.89p and petrol by 1.71p per litre.
