Think the State Pension is unfair? You need to see this

The UK State Pension – the money that the government pays to those who have reached retirement age – is seen by many as unfair. Not only is the payout peanuts at just £168.60 per week (£8,778 per year), but the age at which you can access it is increasing and within the next decade it will hit 67.I can certainly understand why the State Pension is a source of frustration for many. For a start, it’s nearly impossible to live off less than £9K a year, particularly if you’re a single retiree. Secondly, not many of us want to work until we’re in our late 60s.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, before we all complain about the State Pension, it’s worth looking at the other side of the coin. I’m referring to the incredible incentives that the UK provides to those who are willing to save for retirement. Looking at what’s on offer in other countries, I believe the UK has one of the most generous retirement saving set-ups in the world.A great set-up for retirement saversFor example, consider pension tax relief. Put £800 into your pension and the government will top this up to £1,000 (higher-rate taxpayers get an even better deal). Considering that you can contribute up to £40,000 per year into a pension and qualify for tax relief, that’s a brilliant deal. Put £5,000 into a pension every year from the age of 40 and earn an 8% return on your money through the stock market on top of the tax relief, and you’re looking at savings of nearly £500,000 by the time you turn 65.Then, there’s the Stocks and Shares ISA. This account, the contents of which you can access at any time, allows you to invest up to £20,000 a year tax-free. In other words, any capital gains or income you generate from your investments are sheltered from the taxman. Again, this is a fantastic deal. Build up a portfolio of dividend stocks within your ISA, and you could have a passive retirement income which is completely tax-free.Finally, there’s the Lifetime ISA, which is open to those aged 18 to 40. Invest £4,000 into this account, and not only will all your gains and income be tax-free, but the government will also give you a bonus £1,000 up to age 50. That’s a phenomenal deal! Put in £4,000 every year from age 35 and earn an 8% return per year through stocks, and by 50, you could have retirement savings of nearly £150,000.Take advantage and retire wealthyI can’t stress enough that these are amazing deals. Compared to what’s on offer in other countries, UK pension and ISA limits are extremely generous.For example, in the US, the annual contribution limit for the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is currently $6,000 (about £4,600). And Canada’s Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), which is similar to a Stocks and Shares ISA, currently has an annual limit of C$6,000 (about £3,500). Meanwhile, in Australia, where I’m from, there’s no tax-efficient savings account like the ISA where you can shelter your gains from the taxman.So, while the UK State Pension may be one of the worst pensions in the developed world, there is another side to the story here. Take advantage of the UK’s generous retirement saving set-up, and invest your money wisely, and there’s no reason why you can’t retire with quite a significant sum of money, free of State Pension worries.  Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

After the Pittsburgh massacre: Solidarity against racism, anti-Semitism

first_imgProtesters sat shiva for victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre and banged on the doors of the Metropolitan Republican Club, New York City, Oct. 27.Solidarity against racism, anti-immigrant xenophobia and anti-Semitism has swept the United States since the Oct. 27 Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. Individuals and organizations from many communities are uniting to push back the rise of openly fascist forces.At the same time, these forces have stepped up their attacks. There’s been a surge of racist and anti-Semitic vandalism and violence. President Trump eggs this on with his ever-escalating campaign to demonize Central American refugees and pump up all forms of racism.In the days leading to the Pittsburgh killings, the shooter Robert Bowers wrote on the white-supremacist social network Gab that Jews are “the enemy of the people.” Just hours before he entered the Tree of Life synagogue shouting, “All Jews must die,” and murdered 11 people, Bowers posted: “HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”HIAS is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. According to its website, HIAS was founded in 1881 “to assist Jews fleeing pogroms in Russia and Eastern Europe,” and “now welcomes all who have fled persecution.” Recently HIAS has supported Central Americans seeking asylum in the U.S. In July, HIAS led 40 rabbis on a solidarity trip to the Texas border. On Oct. 19-20, a week before Bowers shot up the Pittsburgh synagogue, HIAS organized “National Refugee Shabat 2018,” encouraging synagogues across the country to dedicate their Sabbath services to supporting immigrants.This is the kind of solidarity Trump seeks to break. He announced his candidacy in June 2015 by calling Mexicans rapists and criminals. He began his administration by trying to ban anyone from Muslim countries from entering the U.S. After Klan and Nazi thugs marched through Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017, killing Heather Heyer and injuring many, he characterized them as “very fine people.” Throughout the current election campaign, he has unleashed ever more brazen white nationalist rhetoric.Assault on oppressed people and working-class unityTo block working-class unity against his boss class, Trump has given the green light for the most vile scum to rise to the surface.A sharp rise in racist attacks against Black, Latinx and other communities of color is the direct result. Just three days before the Pittsburgh killings, another white supremacist, this one in Jeffersontown, Ky., tried to enter a Black church to kill parishioners. Failing to gain entry, he shot up a nearby Kroger supermarket, killing two Black people.Five days after Pittsburgh, someone defaced the African Burial Ground Monument in New York’s lower Manhattan with terrible racist graffiti.Though most don’t make the national news, many more racist acts happen every day around the country. Racist police routinely shoot down Black people, rarely with any repercussions.When Dylann Roof murdered nine Black people in a racist massacre at Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., on June 17, 2015, he did so the day after Trump announced he’d run for president.Anti-Muslim violence has been on a sharp upswing. Since Trump’s inauguration, the group South Asian Americans Leading Together “has documented 416 incidents of hate violence and xenophobic political rhetoric against Muslim, Sikh, South Asian, Arab and Middle Eastern communities,” according to a statement.The synagogue slaughter, driven by both anti-immigrant racism and anti-Semitism, was the worst violence against Jewish people in U.S. history. But it cannot come as a surprise. The number of anti-Jewish incidents in this country surged by over 50 percent in 2017. They ranged from anti-Semitic graffiti, to vandalism against cemeteries, community centers and synagogues, to physical assaults.Even in New York City — with a Jewish population of over 1.5 million, by far the biggest anywhere in the world — there has been a sharp rise in such incidents. In the week after Pittsburgh, anti-Jewish graffiti was found in synagogues in several different parts of the city. Swastikas appeared on the walls of Jewish schools and on graves in Jewish cemeteries.Sorrow and solidarityGrief, rage and solidarity marked the aftermath of the Tree of Life massacre. In Pittsburgh, thousands marched in sorrow and anger — and to tell Trump he was not welcome. Tens of thousands signed a letter with that message.On Nov. 3, Pittsburgh’s first Sabbath services were held since the killings. Jewish people said they were overwhelmed at the outpouring of support as Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and nonreligious people attended.Within days of the synagogue killings, Arab-American, Iranian and Muslim organizations had raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to the victims’ families. The Rev. Eric S.C. Manning of Mother Emanuel Church flew to Pittsburgh, where he spoke at the funeral for Rose Mallinger, one of Bowers’ victims.In New York, 14 young Jewish activists were arrested for sitting shiva — the Jewish mourning ritual — at the Metropolitan Republican Club. Just last month, the club had hosted a meeting of the white supremacist grouping calling itself the Proud Boys, after which the fascist thugs had attacked protesters outside.Strong statements against anti-Semitism and racism were issued by the AFL-CIO and many national unions, including AFSCME, UNITE HERE, CWA and SEIU. Internationally, vigils, marches and services were held in cities on every continent. The Cuban Embassy in Washington sent condolences to the mayor of Pittsburgh.And in Palestine, statements denouncing the synagogue killings were issued by both the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora and by Hamas, the elected governing party in Gaza.Israeli politicians, meanwhile, used the tragedy to defend Trump and attack supporters of the Palestinian national liberation struggle. The newspaper Ha’aretz headlined its report: “American Jews may never forgive Israel for its reaction to the Pittsburgh massacre.”In Washington, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey announced Nov. 2 that he will support the so-called Israel Anti-Boycott Act. The likely 2020 Democratic presidential candidate framed his announcement as a response to anti-Semitism.In fact, the bill is an unconstitutional measure to outlaw support for the Boycott Divestment Sanctions campaign against the Israeli apartheid settler state. Rabbi Alissa Wise of Jewish Voice for Peace called Booker’s statement “a sad, wrong and truly dangerous decision.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Tekce Overseas: “Bitcoin Peaked, Profit Realized in Real Estate”

first_img Tekce Overseas: “Bitcoin Peaked, Profit Realized in Real Estate” By Digital AIM Web Support – March 4, 2021 WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter TAGS  Pinterest WhatsAppcenter_img Facebook ISTANBUL–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Since the Bitcoin price entered an upward trend, international investors started to seek investment areas for profit realization. In this sense, one of the most important markets was real estate. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005610/en/ While crypto currencies reach record values, the investors chose the real estate market as the main area for profit realization. (Photo: Business Wire) Evaluating the developments in the market, Bayram Tekce, Chairman of Tekce Overseas, stated, “With our goal to be a pioneer in PropTech, crypto payment methods were always on our agenda. In this period, when the value of Bitcoin reached record levels, we created a significant value with the reliable and easy payment methods we offer to investors and we experienced a serious increase in demand in this regard.” Sold more than 50 real estate in the last 2 months Bayram Tekçe, who made the first real estate sale with crypto currency in the world in 2017, stated that they have sold more than 50 real estate in the last 2 months when the crypto money market peaked. He added that Turkey, having a liberal economy, offers many opportunities to crypto currency investors for balancing their assets by using property investment as a leverage. Bitcoin, the crypto currency with the highest volume in the market, is on the agenda in recent days with record price increases. The third of the Bitcoin Halving was held on May 11, 2020 with the objective of slowing down the production and balancing the supply on the market. As a result of the halving, Bitcoin was expected to gain more value as a medium of exchange or investment. In addition, investors in search of a tool that will not lose value due to the global pandemic; the American presidential election and the increasing interest of corporate companies in this area also triggered the increase in value. Being a decentralized digital currency, Bitcoin attracts the attention of many investors looking for wealth security.

Industry Reacts to Fed’s Coronavirus Response

The Dow Jones, which was positive 150 points prior to his press conference, fell by more than 300 points by the conclusion of his speech. The Dow Jones ended the day 785 points down. Mark Hamrick, Bankrate.com’s Senior Economic Analyst said the Fed delivered “monetary policy medicine” that investors were looking following the economic impacts of the virus. Hamrick said the full “emergency” 50-basis point reductions—the first since the Great Recession—shows how serious the Fed believes the possible risks the virus poses to the economy. “At issue is how much this inoculation can protect the economy and support the financial markets from a public health crisis and supply constraints radiating out from China,” he said. “While the statement from the FOMC says the fundamentals of the economy remain strong, central bankers are obviously concerned about developments yet to possibly unfold.”Hamrick cautioned that with target rates now at 1% to 1.25%, the Fed is running out of ammunition to fight economic downturns. Another challenge is how the Fed may take back rate cuts once coronavirus and economic damage have subsided. “Lower interest rates do little to make consumers and businesses feel substantially more confident about the future when a health crisis is spreading around the world,” he said. “It also cannot address the hobbled supply chains, including manufacturing capability in China and South Korea. Still, the Fed is doing what it can to try to keep the economy out of recession.”WalletHub CEO Odysseas Papadimitriou agrees that lower interest was the right call in response to the virus because of the risk of it turning into a pandemic before treatment becomes available is “very real.”“That is not to be alarmist, but being proactive is the best strategy in insulating the economy,” Papadimitriou said. “Consumer spending will go down if people stay home because of the coronavirus.”He added “a rate cut is better than nothing,” but the federal government should be prepared to step in to support distressed industries if things get worse. “That obviously should take a backseat to immediate investments in healthcare capabilities. But if the coronavirus spreads throughout the economy and the fear we’re seeing in markets really manifests itself in hard economic data, that would only compound our problems,” he said. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at the National Association of Realtors, said the coronavirus has “quickly upended globe economic expansion” and introduced the uncertainty of a possible recession.“Today’s interest rate cut is, therefore, an appropriate response to changing events. The real estate sector will hold up very well because of the rate cut. Hesitant home buyers will be enticed to take advantage of low-interest rates. Commercial property prices will rise due to higher returns that can be had from the bond market after adjusting for risks,” Yun said.85 Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Federal Reserve announced Tuesday that it has cut interest rates by half a percentage point in an effort to boost the U.S. economy due to the continuing spread of the coronavirus. “The fundamentals of the U.S. economy remain strong,” the Fed said in a statement on Tuesday. “However, the coronavirus poses evolving risks to economic activity.”The main borrowing rate set by the fed now sits between 1% and 1.25%, which is nearing historic lows. President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets Tuesday morning, saying the Australian Central Bank cut interest rates and stated it will most likely further ease in order to make up for the slowdown caused by the coronavirus. “Other countries are doing the same thing, if not more so,” Trump said on Twitter. “Our Federal Reserve has us paying higher rates than many others when we should be paying less. Tough on our exporters and puts the USA at a competitive disadvantage. Must be the other way around. Should ease and cut-rate big. Jerome Powell of the Federal Reserve has called it wrong from day one.” A report by Politico noted that Powell, Chairman of the Fed, addressed Congress in February and said he did not see a need to adjust interest rates. He told lawmakers, “the current stance of monetary policy will likely remain appropriate.”Powell also said that the virus could “lead to disruptions in China that spill over the rest of the global economy” and there will “very likely” be some effect on the U.S.In a press conference following the announcement, Powell stood by the Fed’s decision to cut interest rates and noted he is confident in the strength of the U.S. economy and that it’s “going to get to the other side of this.”   Print This Post Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Coronavirus Fed Interest rates Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Small Town Mortgage Delinquencies are Growing Next: Michigan Governor Signs Legislation to Mitigate Foreclosure Issues The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
