By now the word is out that unsecured lending – e.g., on credit cards, overdrafts and personal loans – jumped an annual 9.1 percent in January 2016, according to a Bank of England report released at the end of February.

It’s not always easy to make all the right moves when it comes to money. In fact, as a society, we’re pretty bad at managing our money.  CNN Money recently stated that over 25 million middle class families are living paycheck to paycheck. That’s horrible!  So much for saving for a house, rainy day, or even retirement. The good news: It doesn’t have to be this way.  Most common financial mistakes are pretty easy ...

The United States isn’t the only place in the world where people have to worry about how they will pass on their life-long fortune to their heirs.  The English have similar problems and rules written within their tax codes that can complicate how an inheritance is handled after a loved one passes away.
