How I’d beat the State Pension with just £5 per day

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. At present, the standard State Pension for retirees after the age of 65 is around £9k a year. However, according to several studies, this tiny amount isn’t even enough for most pensioners to live on when they quit the rat race.Therefore, today I’m going to explain how you can start saving to beat the State Pension with just £5 a day. Using this relatively small amount, savers can build a substantial nest egg with the potential to produce a sizable State Pension beating income in retirement.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…Daily savingA fiver a day might not seem like much, but when combined with the tax benefits available by using a SIPP, it can make a big difference.For example, £5 a day works out at around £152 per month. Any SIPP contributions are entitled to tax relief at a taxpayer’s marginal tax rate (20% for basic ratepayers). As such, after including tax relief, this monthly contribution jumps to £190 a month or £2,281 a year.The best way to grow this money is to invest it in a low-cost passive tracker fund. The FTSE 250 is an excellent index to track for this purpose because it is an index of mid-cap companies, which tend to produce better growth rates than their larger peers.Indeed, since its inception, the FTSE 100 has returned approximately 9% per annum. The FTSE 250, on the other hand, has returned closer to 12%.Building the potThe combination of a SIPP, with its tax benefits, and FTSE 250 with its double-digit returns, is a powerful one for investors.I calculate that monthly deposits of £190 over 30 years would build a pension pot worth £671k from a standing start. This would be enough to give an annual income of at least £26,000 for 25 years in retirement, more than triple the current rate of the State Pension.If you don’t have the luxury of time on your side, it is still possible to accumulate a pot of £190k from a standing start over two decades.That would be enough to produce an annual income around the same level as the State Pension for two-and-a-half decades.Getting savingNo matter how much time you have left to go until retirement, or how much you can afford to put away, by using the principles above, you can build a substantial retirement pot with just a few clicks.Most online stockbrokers now offer a regular monthly investment plan with a direct debit facility from as little as £50 per month. So, once you’ve set up your contributions, there’s no further effort required.In the meantime, passive tracker funds require no babysitting as they’re only designed to track their underlying index. There’s no need to choose a manager or pick strategies. You just need to set up the monthly transactions and forget about them.So what are you waiting for?

Corea, Vietnam y la máquina de guerra de los Estados Unidos

first_imgLa última reunión cumbre entre Kim Jong Un, el líder supremo de la República Popular Democrática de Corea y el Presidente de los Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, terminó abruptamente en Hanoi el 28 de febrero sin ningún acuerdo.Si bien Trump, con su ego sobredimensionado y su comportamiento impredecible, había querido obtener crédito por algún tipo de acuerdo de paz, él mismo sentó las bases del fracaso de la reunión con sus citas de John Bolton y Mike Pompeo, ambos duros contra la RPDC.El 28 de febrero de 2018, Bolton escribió un artículo para el Wall Street Journal titulado “El Caso Legal para Golpear a Corea del Norte Primero”. En otras palabras este se merece el título de maníaco de la guerra. Tres semanas después, Trump nombró a Bolton para que fuera su asesor de seguridad nacional.Al momento del nombramiento, hace un año, muchos de los medios de comunicación capitalistas de aquí criticaron a Bolton. Simon Kuper, del Financial Times, escribió el 4 de abril: “Un belicista está a punto de comenzar a trabajar a pocos pasos de Trump en una Casa Blanca sin procedimientos”. Un artículo en The American Conservative (!) se titulaba “A Loco en El Consejo de Seguridad Nacional “. Una pieza en la revista Salon se titulaba:” El sediento de sangre John Bolton ansioso por matar a los norcoreanos “.¿Dónde están ahora estos críticos burgueses? ¿Dónde está el New York Times? Su editorial sobre el nombramiento estaba titulado: “Sí, John Bolton realmente es así de peligroso”. (23 de marzo) Sin embargo, sus informes ahora, con el colapso de las conversaciones, están culpando a “grandes egos y malas apuestas” en ambos lados. Al parecer, se han olvidado las amenazas de EUA de lanzar una guerra nuclear contra la RPDC.El papel de PompeoSupongamos que representaba a un pequeño país que había sido devastado por el ejército de los Estados Unidos a principios de la década de 1950, cuando la Fuerza Aérea de los Estados Unidos bombardeó todos los edificios por encima de dos pisos en Corea del Norte y millones murieron. Cuando usted, como persona responsable, lea que un belicista sediento de sangre ahora está asesorando al presidente de los Estados Unidos, ¿no haría todo lo posible por fortalecer las defensas de su país?Bolton sigue siendo el asesor de seguridad nacional del presidente, pero no acompañó a Trump a la reunión con Kim Jong Un. ¿Cómo podían los coreanos sentarse con él en la misma habitación?En cambio, fue Mike Pompeo, Secretario de Estado de Trump, a quien el Times llamó “el adulto en la sala” y lo describió como “el principal arquitecto de las continuas negociaciones de Trump” con la RPDC.¿Pero cuál fue la posición de los Estados Unidos presentada por Pompeo en las conversaciones? Fue que la RPDC debería renunciar a todas sus armas nucleares, materiales e instalaciones a cambio de poner fin a las sanciones económicas de Estados Unidos.¿Qué quieren los coreanos? El fin del estado de guerra que sigue siendo la política oficial de los Estados Unidos hacia Corea. Solo hubo un acuerdo de alto el fuego en 1953. Bajo el estado de guerra que todavía está vigente, los Estados Unidos continúan estacionando casi 30,000 soldados en Corea del Sur, y podrían lanzar un ataque al norte en cualquier momento.¿Quiénes son los verdaderos maníacos de guerra en el mundo? A partir de 2017, los EUA poseían casi 7,000 armas nucleares, muchas de ellas desplegadas en todo el mundo, listas para ser lanzadas desde aviones, submarinos y bases de misiles. Sin embargo, la clase dominante aquí, después de años de amenazar a la RPDC con la devastación nuclear, está actuando sorprendida de que los coreanos hayan desarrollado la tecnología para defenderse con armas nucleares.¿Cómo pueden los EUA esperar que los coreanos acepten una oferta para poner fin a las sanciones, que en realidad son una violación del derecho internacional, destinado a matar de hambre a la población de la RPDC, cuando no contienen una sola palabra sobre cómo abandonar la presión militar contra país?La conclusión obvia es que la “oferta” de los EE.UU., elaborada por Pompeo, estaba destinada a hacer estallar las conversaciones. Pero ninguno de los principales medios capitalistas dirá esto. Tampoco lo hará ninguno de los líderes del Partido Demócrata, que critican la reacción súper reaccionaria de Trump sobre otras cuestiones y su flagrante racismo y sexismo, sino que se alinean con la administración a cerca de Corea.De hecho, la clase dominante de los EUA y el Partido Demócrata han criticado a Trump desde la derecha, por difícil que parezca, cuando se trata de decir algo positivo sobre Corea del Norte.Es un procedimiento estándar en todos los medios corporativos de EUA para presentar a la RPDC en los términos más insultantes, utilizando las mismas frases comunes una y otra vez. También repiten sin cesar la misma mentira: que las tropas estadounidenses están en Corea del Sur para defender a las personas que están aterrorizadas por el norte.Pero esa mentira destruida durante los Juegos Olímpicos del año pasado en Corea del Sur, cuando era obvio para todo el mundo que la gente del sur acogía con entusiasmo a los equipos atléticos del norte y del sur que marchaban juntos bajo una bandera común.Relaciones entre RPDC y VietnamEl viaje de Kim Jong Un a Hanoi tuvo otro lado que ha recibido pocos comentarios en los medios corporativos aquí. Pero fue importante para la gente tanto de Vietnam como de Corea y para las personas de todo el mundo que luchan por el socialismo.El viaje a Hanoi fue el primero de un líder de la RPDC desde que Kim Il Sung, el legendario liberador de Corea del gobierno colonial japonés y organizador de su resistencia a la guerra de los Estados Unidos de 1950-53, visitó Vietnam en 1964. El líder coreano se reunió en ese momento con el igualmente legendario Ho Chi Minh, líder de la lucha por liberar a Vietnam del dominio colonial francés y luego de los invasores estadounidenses.El 1 de marzo, Kim Jong Un depositó coronas de flores en el Mausoleo de Ho Chi Minh y en el Monumento a la Guerra de Vietnam en Hanoi, un memorial para todos aquellos que murieron luchando por la independencia y el socialismo en la guerra con los Estados Unidos. El presidente vietnamita Nguyen Phu Trong organizó un banquete para Kim Jong Un y la delegación de Corea.Ambos países asiáticos estaban divididos por las potencias imperialistas occidentales. Ambos han sufrido horribles pérdidas humanas y materiales a manos del Pentágono. Ambos tienen que descubrir cómo sobrevivir y fortalecer su desarrollo socialista en un mundo aún dominado por el imperialismo.La gente de Vietnam y Corea está haciendo todo lo posible para avanzar. La pregunta es: ¿Qué puede hacer el pueblo de los EUA para frenar las manos de los maníacos de la guerra como Bolton, así como a los “adultos en la habitación” más engañosos pero igualmente peligrosos, como Pompeo, para que las guerras libradas solo por obtener beneficios para super rica clase gobernante nunca vuelvan a suceder?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Military ban magazine in northeastern state of Shan

Reporters Without Borders has only just learned of Hsenpai’s closure. The eighth and last issue, published in June 2003, included a report on a meeting between the Alliance of United Nationalities and UN special envoy Razali Ismail. After it came out, the Military Intelligence Service threatened editor Sai Nood with prosecution if it continued publishing.The seventh issue, in March 2003, had already announced that from the next issue onwards the magazine would include political news. Sai Nood was imprisoned from February to May 2003.He has since then tried to get around the censorship by changing publication. He is now based in Rangoon, where he edits a comic-strip magazine called Lied Hsiao (Clever), which is targeted at the Shan ethnic minority. The first issue came out last month. “No one knows how long this magazine will last, but you can bet the authorities will have their eye on it,” a journalist from the north of Shan state said.
