    US students need better finance education: Guardian

    The Guardian
    A new report by the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers shows that US citizens do not know much about finance. That is endangering people's financial well-being, according to the Guardian. "The alarmingly wide wealth gap in the US has no simple fix, but knowing the difference between a stock and a bond, whether a mortgage is a good deal or toxic, and the calculus of repaying a loan are small, significant steps toward bringing 90% of Americans closer to their wealthy fellows," writes Suzanne McGee. In particular, young people urgently need proper financial educations in order to be able to secure a safe future despite student loans and savings plans. Only those having basic financial knowledge have a good chance of coping with these challenges.

    Mind the Bollingers® for your pension investing
    Do you need to save a regular monthly amount for your future retirement? Self-management of pension money is limited by various fiscal authorities to long-only policies. But in a bear marketplace, there are doubts about whether this is prudent. So can you accrue a pension that is self-financing? There are myriad strategies, but the question remains: should you go long?

    Novel call for offshore banking hub on disputed islet

    The Sydney Morning Herald
    A Chinese official has a novel plan for Woody Island, a tiny contested speck in the South China Sea. Han Fangming, a businessman and political adviser, says the government ought to turn the 2.13 square-kilometre outpost into China's version of the British Virgin Islands. His pitch is to use it as a hub for company registration. Companies like Alibaba and Baidu are doing business in the Cayman Islands, so why not bring that money home? The island is the largest of the Paracel Islands, claimed by China, Vietnam and Taiwan. Making the island look and act like an ordinary Chinese city would bolster Beijing's claim that these islands serve civilian purposes – an idea it's keen to sell, at home and abroad.

    Only real rates are the real thing

    Only real rates are the real thing
    Saving for the future (such as for the time you're on the pension) is often done with a certain purchasing power in mind. When anticipating it, not only the nominal rate of return of an investment is important, but also inflation. Both are uncertain and impossible to accurately predict. Here we take a look at past inflation rates and what real rates of return occurred.

    This is what you really get for your money

    This is what you really get for your money
    Interest rates remain low, but that does not mean saving isn't worth it. It’s a matter of strategy. And of course one has to take into account that low interest rates are often accompanied by low inflation. Hence, the real yield compared to previously is higher than it appears. Let’s have a look at how real rates developed over the past. In a later article we will shed light on the fact that in the long run, historically, shares still showed extraordinary returns.
