In Praise of Credit Checks / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Jeffrey_A_Tucker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was maybe third grade when the schoolyard was abuzz with a terrible thing. It was called the "permanent record." If you did something bad enough, it would go on the permanent record. And then a one-day slip up would turn into a deep scar, a mortal sin that would last forever and permanently reduce your chances to make it in life.

My Advice to Young People, Save, Multiple Streams of Income, Eliminate Debt and Acquire Some Physical Gold / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last few years I've been freely dispensing financial advice to young people. I usually preface my remarks by saying, "I feel funny telling you what to do with your life, but since I'm bald you know I'm older and that I worry a lot." In the present article I'll summarize my recommendations. I am comfortable reproducing them for wide distribution, because they are conservative tips that would be appropriate in any setting, but are particularly important given my dire views on the Western economies.

Personalising The Debt Ceiling Crisis / Personal_Finance / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

You have a credit card with a $25,000 limit.
Because you have a good job, you only have $6,000 on the card, and routinely pay the monthly statement and a little extra on the principal.

But then you decide you need a 52-inch high-def LCD TV screen to go into your “man cave,” and your family rightfully decides they need a vacation. So, you add a few thousand to the credit card. But, it’s all OK since you just got a promotion at work.

Obama, Idle Thoughts For The Ides Of July / Personal_Finance / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost persons vaguely heard of the Ides of March, associated with the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC, but in fact the ides were periodic Roman pagan calendar-based days, that repeated right through the year, with the Ides of March, May, July and October being the most magically powerful.

Although we missed this year's Ides of July by a few days, the slippage between the Roman calendar, and our own, variously called the "christian" or "modern" calendar (named for the not-so-modern 13th century Pope Gregory), can easily cover this problem.

UK Safe Retail Banks List / Personal_Finance / UK Banking

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe following table lists Britain's major retail banking groups (separate licences) in terms of the percentage probability that your deposits above the UK compensation limit of £85k and Euro-zone banks 100,000 (current £/E £86k) would be secure in the event of a series of euro-zone debt defaults starting with Greece and that the crisis is contained to these smaller peripheral euro-zone countries i.e. Greece, Portugal and Ireland, if Spain comes under real risk of default then that would require a revaluation of this list as banks such as Santander would come under far greater pressure given exposure to Spanish government debt.

The Extinction of Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the better part of a century the foundations for a semi-comfortable retirement for many Americans have rested on the financial pillars of rising real estate and equity prices, positive real interest rates on savings, the continued solvency of public and private pension plans, and the reliability of national entitlement programs (Social Security, Medicaid). But in the last few years, the economic sands have fundamentally shifted and these pillars are no longer sturdy, some have cracked completely. For many Americans, the traditional idea of a comfortable retirement, filled with golf carts, cruises, and fishing trips, is going the way of the dodo bird.

How to Shelter Your Cash From Inflation / Personal_Finance / Inflation

By: Terry_Coxon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTerry Coxon, The Casey Report writes: The high rate of inflation most of us believe is waiting not too far down the road will be an earthquake for investment markets. The likely winners (gold, silver, precious metals stocks) and the likely losers (long-term bonds and most stocks) aren’t too hard to identify. But separating the sheep from the goats is only one element for financial success in an environment of rapidly rising consumer prices.

Down With the Dictator / Personal_Finance / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Governments and their intellectual front men believe that nothing unites a population like a war. Actually, that’s not quite true.
