Compound Interest and the Debt Bubble / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it ... he who doesn't ... pays it." Albert Einstein

Without a comprehensive understanding in this axiom of the financial universe, much of public policy and finance is incomprehensible. The different positions of the borrower and the lender is obvious, but the notion that one can earn enough interest on savings to maintain the purchasing power of the principle is a bygone fantasy in the era of low interest rates.

The American Debt Crisis, How to Save Your Money And Your Life / Personal_Finance / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Casey, Casey Research writes: I think there are really only two good reasons for having a significant amount of money: To maintain a high standard of living and to ensure your personal freedom. There are other, lesser reasons, of course, including: to prove you can do it, to compensate for failings in other things, to impress others, to leave a legacy, to help perpetuate your genes, or maybe because you just can't think of something better to do with your time.

How the Banks Use Government To Make Us Suffer / Personal_Finance / US Politics

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are many ways in which human beings have created means of exchange (currency, means of payment, money) that have worked successfully over long periods of time. There is the way that Menger explained, through discovery of a highly marketable commodity. This is the way in which precious metals gained ascendancy. Another way is through banks that have intermediated short-term (90-day) bills of exchange and provided bank notes. This was common for many centuries. Another way is through the deposits of goldsmiths at a bank in exchange for certificates that circulate. Fourth, governments have created tax certificates good for paying taxes, and these have functioned as means of exchange. We should not forget also that there have been many commodities that have been used as means of exchange.

Get Rid of Your IRA, Don't put Gold or anything else in it / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the categories is "retirement." There is a lot of interest in retirement issues. One of them is what assets should go into an IRA.

I say "None." This is not a popular answer. I add, "especially gold." This is also unpopular.

Over the years, I have published articles on my site explaining these answers. But some subscribers do not use the search engine to locate these articles. Others do not believe me. Still others talk it over with their accountants. Their accountants offer rival views. Then they post a question that reflects their accountants' views.

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou've been sold a bill of goods for the last four to six decades.  You've been told that nation-states, democracy and socialism is good.  You've been told our monetary system prevents instability.  And, while the government and central banks put your unborn children or grandchildren into debt for life they've been telling you that there will be a socialist safety net to protect you and that the "American dream" includes retiring in your 50s or 60s to a wonderful life of golf and lying on the beach.

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.

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.
