Halifax illustrates Cash ISA Savings Catastrophe, Which Best ISA Now? / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBritain's savers continue to fight a losing battle to maintain purchasing power of savings following the financial crash of four years ago since which time savings interest rates have tended to languish below even the official highly suspect CPI inflation rate, that never reflects the rising cost of peoples weekly shops. Britain's whole savings market reeks of being a fraudulent enterprise that exists purely to transfer wealth from savers over to the banks and government (taxes). In which respect cash ISA's offered some hope to at least avoid the tax element of the stealth theft underway.

Student Loan Debt Slavery, Is College Worth It? / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic Collapse writes: Every single year, millions of young adults head off to colleges and universities all over America full of hopes and dreams. But what most of those fresh-faced youngsters do not realize is that by taking on student loan debt they are signing up for a life of debt slavery. Student loan debt has become a trillion dollar bubble which has shattered the financial lives of tens of millions of young college graduates. When you are just starting out and you are not making a lot of money, having to make payments on tens of thousands of dollars of student loan debt can be absolutely crippling. The total amount of student loan debt in the United States has now surpassed the total amount of credit card debt, and student loan debt is much harder to get rid of. Many young people view college as a "five year party", but when the party is over millions of those young people basically end up as modern day serfs as they struggle to pay off all of the debt that they have accumulated during their party years. Bankruptcy laws have been changed to make it incredibly difficult to get rid of student loan debt, so once you have it you are basically faced with two choices: either you are going to pay it or you are going to die with it.

Numbing Effect of Savings Interest / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

It is hardly surprising that we have all become numb to the plight of interest on savings accounts. Everyone knows how miserably low they are.
 
In monetary terms, just how bad has it got?  It’s hard to imagine that only five years ago, Bank of England (BoE) base rate was 5.75%. The average no notice account paid 4.08% and to raise £100 in gross interest would have required a deposit of £2,451. Notice accounts paid an average of 4.23%, and to get the same return would have meant investing slightly less at £2,364.
