Next, John Lewis Christmas Sales 2013 - All High Street Start Dates / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It's Christmas! That means a month long media induced buying frenzy for the masses to engage in as sales fever pitch reaches its maximum intensity in the run up to Boxing Day. However, a word of caution as this is NOT 2008 when many retailers were teetering on the edge of bankruptcy that would claim many such as Woolworth's and Comet, and thus were panicked into real deep discounts to quickly offload stock to improve their cash-flows. Instead, now we have a strong UK economic recovery underway that is resulting in an highly engineered sales season which started off with over inflated prices calculated to generated discounts of as much as 75% so that items can still be sold for a hefty profit.

UK Christmas Sales 2013 Start Dates, Retailers Deep Discounts / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A fast accelerating UK economy towards growth rates that academic economists cannot imagine today (well beyond 3% GDP) looks set to manifest itself during the holiday season as a debt fuelled spending binge as the cathedrals if modern Britain will be jam packed with shoppers afflicted with sales fever searching for bargains as Christmas has morphed into a month long relentless advertisement to spend, spend and then spend some more in January.

Turn off the Tube, Tune out the Media, and Drop out of December Madness / Personal_Finance / Financial Markets 2013

By: Don_Miller

Overconsumption of mass media during the month of December can cause emotional whiplash. Navigating images of smiling shoppers and candy-cane merriment while reading about a derailed train in the Bronx or Syrian refugees has left me pining for the days of yore—when Christmas was still vaguely related to a guy who wore sandals and annoyed his local government, and the only bad news you heard about was the drought or oxcart accident in your own village. Sure, folks still capitalized on religion and lots of bad stuff happened, but there was no 24-hour news/commercial cycle feeding us the play-by-play.

Why America's Bestselling Retirement "Plan" Is Jeopardizing Your Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: I recently received a call from "Russ," a client of mine. He was wondering why the investments he holds at my money management firm have gone up so much more than the money he's entrusted to a major fund broker.

I'd be wondering, too.

That's because, in a year filled with hundreds of 52-week highs and a broad market that climbed roughly 25%, they've managed to "grow" Russ' money all of... 2%?

Six Traits of Successful Retirees / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

When I coached baseball many years ago, a young ballplayer came to me asking for advice. I offered my opinion: he needed to get his act together. Then, like many young men might do, he griped about me to one of the other coaches. Our paths crossed again when he was 28 years old, at which point he said, "Now that I have a family of my own, I've thought back on your 'lectures' and realized you were just answering my questions honestly. Thank you."

Franchise Dangers - Why Buying a Business Franchising is a Bad Deal / Personal_Finance / Business

By: BATR

The most often cited reason to go into business is to make money. At least that is what you are supposed to believe. If that was the only motivation, there are many other options to turn a quick buck and avoid all the pit falls and responsibility of making a payroll. For the brave of heart and persistent of will, starting your own business is a dream come true. Therefore, at first look, it seems reasonable to follow a pattern of a proven winner, when the leap requires putting your entire net worth on the line. Franchising has the appeal of lessening the odds of failure, to the uninitiated.

How to Judge Your Financial Advisor / Personal_Finance / Investing 2013

By: Don_Miller

A friend of mine used to have three financial advisors whom he forced into competition. If one started underperforming, he would pull some money from him and give it to the other two. I’ve heard of similar strategies several times now. In some ways, it makes sense. However, this strategy misses the real purpose of having a financial advisor.

The A to Z of HMRC Tax Self-Assessment for 2014 / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Submissions

Doug Barden writes: Do you earn an income through freelance work? Are you a company director? If you are self-employed, every year you need to complete a tax return for HM Revenue & Customs.

You have to showcase your income and capital gains, and you can claim certain allowances and reliefs.

It’s important that you understand everything you need to know about self-assessment in order to avoid any penalties from the taxman.

RBS Crashes Christmas as Panic Button Hit, Savers Dump Savings for Spending and Property Investing / Personal_Finance / Banksters

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Tax payer bailed-out and 82% owned RBS remains one of Britains largest weapons of mass financial destruction that along with its subsidiaries such as Nat West literally crashed Christmas for millions of its customers as debit cards were declined and ATM's went offline on cyber monday freezing customers out of their accounts on the busiest shopping day of the year that continues today.

How to Buy Happiness / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: DailyWealth

Mark Ford writes: Many times, the things/experiences that give us the greatest joy are free.

But oftentimes, money is involved. And when that's the case, we have to weigh the cost of the thing/experience against the pleasure we will get from it.

One example: owning a home...

In Automatic Wealth, I argued that one of the most important things you can do to become rich is to get off the "moving-on-up train" and be satisfied with the house you have.

Personal Finance - What You Need to Teach Your Kids Today / Personal_Finance / Educating Children

By: Investment_U

David Fessler writes: Today is Black Friday, Americans’ annual homage to our greatest passion: shopping. And I’m not looking to spoil your fun. But before you hit the stores, I want to skip my typical commentary on the energy sector and talk about how to model good financial habits for your kids.

Because it breaks my heart that so few parents give their children the gift of financial wisdom. According to CNBC, most parents over age 50 have never discussed investing with their children. Are you one of them?

Terrorism, Starvation And The Global Economic Crisis: Counter Strategies / Personal_Finance / Social Issues

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

Every major problem affecting the humanity has become a part of several other problems, as the peoples and the nations are getting more and more interconnected for the forces of globalization and Information Technology,. There is no single solution for any problem without taking into account the solutions for the other problems. Faith, ideology, technology, poverty or starvation, inter-regional and inter-sector imbalances, terrorism or fundamentalism and the global economic crisis are getting inseparable and mutually interconnected.

Getting the Most from Your 401(k)

People who invest heavily in their 401(k)s expect to have enough money to retire. Many are surprised when they come up short—a topic Frontline recently covered in "The Retirement Gamble." What is going wrong?

The show cited mutual fund fees, a topic we tackled in depth in our special report The Top 10 ETFs to Replace Your Expensive Mutual Funds. In addition to fees and some basic number-crunching, there are fundamental issues that determine how well our 401(k) and other retirement accounts perform.

Rent to Own - Don't Fall for This New Old Retail Sales Trick / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Kmart has joined a long and "distinguished" list of retail chains who offer a rent-to-own program.

It's a sign of the times... Only, rather than being a sign of economic recovery, it's a sign of retail desperation.

Ostensibly, these programs are intended to benefit cash-strapped consumers who couldn't otherwise afford to buy big-ticket items. In reality, the program turns consumer goods like a $300 television into a $415 purchase, according to Bloomberg.

Living on Two Paychecks or on Too Many Expectations? / Personal_Finance / Money Making

By: Don_Miller

A good friend once asked me, "How come in the 1950s, you could support a family on a single paycheck, but now my wife and I both have to work to make ends meet?" I'd heard this question many times before. People give countless answers, from the Fed's inflationary policies to the lack of decent-paying manufacturing jobs. Usually, the explanations suggest macroeconomic shifts and major policy changes. And sure, those explanations are a part of it, but folks rarely mention increased expenses and heightened expectations.

Nuclear Power, National Security And The Dirty Bomb / Personal_Finance / Nuclear Power

By: Andrew_McKillop

Although severely damaged by the world public opinion fallout from the Fukushima disaster, the nuclear industry continues to claim nuclear power is the low carbon, oil saving energy of the future. Taking the lifetime of the civil nuclear power industry as starting in the late 1950s, however, it has already had a long period through the 1980s and 1990s when world reactor orders and completions were often zero per year. Public confidence is weak.

UK Savers’ Situation Still Poor Despite Inflation Falling to CPI 2.2% / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Inflation figures released today show the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) fell from 2.7% to 2.2% during October.

To beat inflation, a basic rate taxpayer at 20% needs to find a savings account paying 2.75% per annum, while a higher rate taxpayer at 40% needs to find an account paying at least 3.66%.

Are Investors Getting Dumber / Personal_Finance / Learning to Invest

By: Investment_U

I’ve long lamented that basic financial literacy is not a routine part of a high-school education in this country. Students routinely graduate without understanding compound interest, IRAs, mortgages or why we even have a stock market.

And so they trundle out into the real world, saving little, investing poorly (or not at all) and – typically – paying 18.6% annual interest on their credit cards. Within a few years, they are deep in a hole, trying to dig themselves out, and telling anyone who will listen of the essential inequity of the capitalist system.
