Budget Car Scrappage Scheme £2,000 Cash Incentive / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: MoneySupermarket

Commenting on the Government announcing the introduction of a ‘scrappage scheme’ in this year’s Budget, Steve Sweeney, head of motor insurance at price comparison website, moneysupermarket.com, said: “At last, some good news for the motoring industry. The £2,000 cash incentive to swap cars older than 10 years old for newer models from next month will no doubt help bolster waning motor sales. It could not have come at a more crucial time. Not only will it provide a much needed boost to jobs in this industry, but switching to newer cars, which are normally safer and have less carbon emissions, will be more beneficial for the environment.

Madoff Financial Scam Billions of Lost Dollars / Personal_Finance / Scams

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLawrence R. Velvel writes: I’m probably missing something, in fact I’m probably missing a lot, but as far as I know there has been little in the way of official release of certain crucial numbers related to the Madoff scam.  The government has said that $65 billion was lost; I presume that $65 billion is the collective total shown on the November 30, 2008 statements, and it therefore is the number I shall use here for the total loss.  It has been estimated at various times, if memory serves, that there were either 8,000 accounts or 13,000 accounts. But these would seem to be the number of accounts listed with Madoff, and, since a feeder fund was but one account, these numbers do not include any of the persons who invested through the feeder funds.  It has also been estimated -- with what accuracy I have no idea -- that if you were to count all the people who invested through feeder funds, pension funds, etc., there are 50,000 people who lost money with Madoff.
