Will Your Retirement Accounts Survive The Coming Tax Code "Revolution"? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dan_Amerman

Suppose that you live in a capital city under siege, that is surrounded by revolutionary armies.  And while you don't know the exact timing or specifics, you do believe that the overthrow of the current regime is close to a 100 percent certainty. So you take your life savings and enter into a series of binding contracts with the current regime, under advantageous terms for you.  The revolutionary armies enter the capital city, the current regime is ousted, the new regime repudiates the contracts of the previous regime – and you are left penniless.

Best Cash ISA vs Budget 2015 Scrapping Tax on Savings Interest on First £1,000 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It's that time of the year again when many savers will be busy rushing to capitalise on their use it or lose it £15k cash ISA annual allowance, though having been raised in July 2014 from £5.5k to £15k does not make today's exercise as big a deal for most savers. Still up until this week it had been a case of ensuring cash is deposited in tax free ISA's than in taxed deposit accounts. However, now everything may be changing for many if not most savers following the Budget 2015 announcement to scrap tax on the first £1k of interest earned which with today's abysmal typical interest rates of 1.5% covers savings pots of as much as £65,000!

The Only Time Debt Is Profitable / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: The other day I saw an ad for a mattress store that offered financing, so you can “sleep in peace” on your brand-spanking-new $7,000 mattress set. (Talk about irony!)

Debt is the American way. It makes the impossible possible. It’s seen as benign or even good.

It’s not.

Child Trust Fund CTF Current Best Savings Interest Rates / Personal_Finance / CTF

By: MoneyFacts

On 4 November 2014, to an almost national sigh of relief, the Government published draft regulation changes that will finally allow transfers from Child Trust Funds (CTFs) to Junior ISAs (JISA). The changes are expected to take effect from 6 April 2015.

Moneyfacts has compared the remaining cash versions of CTFs with equivalent JISAs to see if it is worth transferring…

Students Getting a PhD in Subprime Debt - U.S. Debt Breaking Bad Part 3 / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: James_Quinn

In Part One of this three part article I laid out the groundwork of how the Federal Reserve is responsible for the excessive level of debt in our society and how it has warped the thinking of the American people, while creating a tremendous level of mal-investment. In Part Two I focused on the Federal Reserve/Federal Government scheme to artificially boost the economy through the issuance of subprime debt to create a false auto boom. In this final episode, I’ll address the disastrous student loan debacle and the dreadful global implications of $200 trillion of debt destroying the lives of citizens around the world.

Retire Abroad and Offshore Your IRA / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Casey_Research

By Nick Giambruno

Money represents your energy and your time: the days, the weeks, the months, the years it takes you to earn it, and all the things you hope to do with it.

In short, money is like stored life.

Taxation, inflation, and artificially low interest rates are therefore similar to a needle and syringe tapped directly into your vein, sucking the life right out of you.

Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Pension Fund Managers / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: John_Mauldin

We do not have to look to Greece to find massively underfunded obligations. Here in the US we can find hundreds of examples, willingly created by politicians and businessmen who proclaim they are working for the public good. We call them pension funds, but they’re just another form of unfunded debt. A sovereign bond is a promise to pay a certain amount of money over time. A defined-benefit pension fund is a promise to pay a certain amount of income over time. The value of either is determined by the ability of the government or the pension fund (or its sponsor) to pay.

A Way Forward for Greece / Personal_Finance / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Frank_Hollenbeck

The current Greek crisis is exposing the elephant in the room - a worldwide problem getting progressively worse by the day. It’s a problem that has plagued developed economies for the last two millenniums. A problem currently metastasized into a full-blown cancer before our eyes: fraudulent fractional reserve banking (see here and here).

Will Pensioner Bonds Election Bribe Lift General UK Savings Interest Rates from Catastrophic Lows? / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The recent news for the extension of the Coalition Government's 4% Pensioner Bonds election bribe for a further 3 months to at least Mid May 2015 looks set to soak up at least £25 billion of the savings held by interest rate starved pensioners at an estimated cost to the tax payer of at least £1.2 billion. Whilst the bond is only open to the over 65's, nevertheless it will result in a flow of funds away from the commercial banks and to the government run NS&I that should prompt at least a limited rise in savings interest rates, especially for the directly competing fixed rate bonds such as the 3 and 4 year bonds that could now nudge above 3%.

When Pro Players Fritter Away Millions / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dennis_Miller

By Dennis Miller

How is it possible for one man to burn through $400 million and wind up filing for bankruptcy, $27 million in the hole? Boxer Mike Tyson made it happen, and he’s in good company among professional athletes. Yet other professional athletes parlay their sizable earnings into nest eggs that grow and last.

Why the two divergent paths?

Self Assessment Tax Return Filing Deadline Today, Last Chance to Avoid £100 Fine / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: N_Walayat

Britians' self assessment tax payers have just 12 hours left to go (Midnight 31st Jan) in filing online returns and paying any taxes due to avoid the automatic £100 fine and interest due on outstanding tax that could easily see the total penalty mushroom to over £1000!. Whilst those who have put off filing returns maybe thinking it is now too late to start need to realise or recall just how easy it has become to file online returns with the HMRC that includes as you go input validation and automatic calculation of tax due.

Are You Sure You Want to Delete This? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dennis_Miller

As I sat in my office with tears streaming down my cheeks, my wife walked in and asked, “What’s wrong?”

After a short sniffle, I blurted out, “I just deleted Dad!” The absurdity of my remark hit us both, and we burst out laughing. Dad had been dead for over two years.

How to Find the Best Offshore Banks / Personal_Finance / Current Accounts

By: Casey_Research

By Nick Giambruno

It’s hard to think of a topic where following the conventional wisdom can be more dangerous.

And that topic is banking.

It’s generally accepted as an absolute truth by the public and most financial experts that putting your money in a domestic bank is a safe and responsible thing to do. After all, if anything were to go wrong, your deposits are insured by the government.
