Adverse credit cards usually have higher interest rates and less features than other credit cards, making them an unattractive option for those who can take out other types of credit card. However, they can help to rebuild a good credit rating, if used sensibly.

Protect Your Wealth From the Government, Expatriate Your Wallet / Personal_Finance / Investing 2010

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTerry Coxon, contributing author of Casey Research’s ‘Going Global’ Special Report writes: If everything you own is held in your own name in your own country, then you are not merely exposed, you are vulnerable absolutely, to whatever decisions the government might make about how you should behave and who gets the wealth you've earned. Tomorrow's new government measure, which might land out of the blue, could be a law that affects everyone, or it could be a rule devised to deal with people like you. Or, it could be an administrative action aimed at you alone. In any case, with all your assets at home, you'd find out how the lobster feels when his trap is being hauled out of the water. Nothing he can do about it.
