Rent to Own - Don't Fall for This New Old Retail Sales Trick / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Kmart has joined a long and "distinguished" list of retail chains who offer a rent-to-own program.

It's a sign of the times... Only, rather than being a sign of economic recovery, it's a sign of retail desperation.

Ostensibly, these programs are intended to benefit cash-strapped consumers who couldn't otherwise afford to buy big-ticket items. In reality, the program turns consumer goods like a $300 television into a $415 purchase, according to Bloomberg.

Living on Two Paychecks or on Too Many Expectations? / Personal_Finance / Money Making

By: Don_Miller

A good friend once asked me, "How come in the 1950s, you could support a family on a single paycheck, but now my wife and I both have to work to make ends meet?" I'd heard this question many times before. People give countless answers, from the Fed's inflationary policies to the lack of decent-paying manufacturing jobs. Usually, the explanations suggest macroeconomic shifts and major policy changes. And sure, those explanations are a part of it, but folks rarely mention increased expenses and heightened expectations.

Nuclear Power, National Security And The Dirty Bomb / Personal_Finance / Nuclear Power

By: Andrew_McKillop

Although severely damaged by the world public opinion fallout from the Fukushima disaster, the nuclear industry continues to claim nuclear power is the low carbon, oil saving energy of the future. Taking the lifetime of the civil nuclear power industry as starting in the late 1950s, however, it has already had a long period through the 1980s and 1990s when world reactor orders and completions were often zero per year. Public confidence is weak.

UK Savers’ Situation Still Poor Despite Inflation Falling to CPI 2.2% / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Are Investors Getting Dumber / Personal_Finance / Learning to Invest

By: Investment_U

I’ve long lamented that basic financial literacy is not a routine part of a high-school education in this country. Students routinely graduate without understanding compound interest, IRAs, mortgages or why we even have a stock market.

And so they trundle out into the real world, saving little, investing poorly (or not at all) and – typically – paying 18.6% annual interest on their credit cards. Within a few years, they are deep in a hole, trying to dig themselves out, and telling anyone who will listen of the essential inequity of the capitalist system.

A Million Dollars Isn’t What It Used to Be / Personal_Finance / Money Making

By: Don_Miller

We all share a common goal: to grow our nest eggs and make sure they last over the long haul. Our generation was taught to live off the interest and never touch the principal, but interest rates for CDs and Treasuries no longer allow for that. Frankly, they don’t even keep up with inflation, so we have to invest our money elsewhere if we want it to last.

Whom Would You Trust with Your Savings: Your Grandfather or Big Brother? / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: Don_Miller

My grandfather was named William Smith, and he was about as common a man as his name implies. He was an army sergeant in WW II, then came home and ran the family farm when the war was over. I doubt he ever heard of Keynesian or Austrian economic theories, but his words of wisdom made it clear just where he stood.

British Gas Freezing Pensioners Not Prices, 9.2% Price Hike, Exponential Inflation / Personal_Finance / Household Bills

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It's that time of the year when Britain's cartel of 6 energy suppliers steps forward one by one to announce extortionate price hikes with SSE's 8.2% of a few days ago now being followed by British Gas announcing that they will hike energy prices by 9.2% (gas prices by 8.4% and electricity by 10.4%).

The Simple Secret to an Early Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: In my early career, I was fortunate to do well financially while working at Goldman Sachs. I also made the decision to live below my means, and to invest intelligently. By my late twenties, I had amassed a seven-figure nest egg, and in my early thirties, I actually took an extended vacation for about five years.

What I came to learn, however, is that you don't have to work for Goldman Sachs - or be a multi-millionaire - to be able to retire comfortably or early.

How to Avoid a Devastating Retirement Planning Mistake / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Think you have reached the holy grail of retirement? Good financial planners use sophisticated computer programs to help us set retirement savings goals. They input dozens of variables based on assumptions about how the world works, and out pops a number telling us how much we should save during our working years. That number, combined with Social Security and any pension we're lucky enough to have, is supposed to be the holy grail of retirement. Reach it and you're set for life.

Zero Interest Rates - The Federal Reserve’s War on Seniors / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Jeff_Berwick

Antonius J. Patrick writes: The Federal Reserve’s “zero interest rate policy” (ZIRP) of the last half dozen years or so has been a financial act of war on the country’s seniors and, for that matter, on all savers. Under ZIRP, interest rates are artificially lowered through the Fed's monetary policy popularly known as, "QE," quantitative easing.

UK Fixed Interest Bond Rates Plummet / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

The Government’s Funding for Lending Scheme started in August 2012 and it took roughly a month for it to devastate the savings market.

As rates started to tumble, many people will have opted to invest their savings in fixed rate bonds to protect their returns.

No Bank Account, No Pension, Will Ever Be Safe / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: LewRockwell

Michael Snyder writes: Now that “bail-ins” have become accepted practice all over the planet, no bank account and no pension fund will ever be 100% safe again. In fact, Cyprus-style wealth confiscation is already starting to happen all around the world. As you will read about below, private pension funds were just raided by the government in Poland, and a “bail-in” is being organized for one of the largest banks in Italy. Unfortunately, this is just the beginning. The precedent that was set in Cyprus is being used as a template for establishing bail-in procedures in New Zealand, Canada and all over Europe. It is only a matter of time before we see this exact same type of thing happen in the United States as well. From now on, anyone that keeps a large amount of money in any single bank account or retirement fund is being incredibly foolish.

Where to Find Yield Without Dividend Stocks, Bonds, or CDs / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Don_Miller

Regular readers know how concerned I am about the number of baby boomers and seniors who are financially unprepared for retirement. It's not like the downsides of aging are a secret. As we get older, our bodies wear out and we slow down. Unless we plan to work until the grim reaper shows up at the door, we need to save and invest quite a bit of money.

Tortoises Win the Retirement Race / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

The race to the finish line—the time between an empty nest and retirement—is tightening. A major generational shift has taken place, and it's having a huge impact on when and how we save and plan.

Most older baby boomers like myself had children in their 20s and empty nests by age 50. They used that time to accumulate enough money to retire. When my children were in high school, their friends' parents were in their late 30s or early 40s. It was unusual to run across 50-somethings at a PTA meeting or high school basketball game.

Are You Really Retired Just Because You Stopped Working? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

From the time I took my first job washing cars at age 15 to the day I retired, working kept money flowing into my bank account. I needed money, and so I had to work (no silver spoon here). A few weeks back, I penned an article highlighting how most older folks . Several readers suggested that continuing to work as long as possible is the best way to quell that fear. Could the solution be that simple?
