    Sure sounds nice:

    The Nordic model refers to the economic and social models of the Nordic countries (Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland). This particular adaptation of the mixed market economy is characterised by “universalist” welfare states (relative to other developed countries), which are aimed specifically at enhancing individual autonomy, ensuring the universal provision of basic human rights and stabilising the economy. It is distinguished from other welfare states with similar goals by its emphasis on maximising labour force participation, promoting gender equality, egalitarian and extensive benefit levels, large magnitude of redistribution, and liberal use of expansionary fiscal policy.

    Economic publications, such as “The Nordic Model – Embracing globalization and sharing risks”, characterize the system as follows:

    An elaborate social safety net in addition to public services such as free education and universal healthcare.
    Strong property rights, contract enforcement, and overall ease of doing business.
    Public pension schemes.
    Low barriers to free trade. This is combined with collective risk sharing (social programmes, labour market institutions) which has provided a form of protection against the risks associated with economic openness.
    Little product market regulation. Nordic countries rank very high in product market freedom according to OECD rankings.
    Low levels of corruption. In Transparency International’s 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index all five Nordic countries were ranked among the 11 least corrupt of 178 evaluated countries.
    High degrees of labour union membership. In 2008, labour union density was 67.5% in Finland, 67.6% in Denmark, and 68.3% in Sweden. In comparison, union membership was 11.9% in the United States and 7.7% in France.

    Please, counterargument or agree. I love political/economical discussion.
    Just to avoid any more “move there if you like it so much”, I already have. I moved to Norway in 2009.
    @Martin L. That is the kind of answer I like! I am aware of the history of Norwegian oil production and knows quite the bit about the economical systems of Norway, the UK and the States. I often discuss things like these with my capitalist and communist friends, it is very engaging and entertaining to reflect upon viewpoints. I agree that the Nordic model will be in rough seas soon, but I think at least Norway’s welfare system can be saved by timely use of oil money in the industrial sector, tightening a bit on the welfare system belt, and stopping the discouragement of private practice in fields like medical care and education. I am aware that the growth rate is lower, but that is one of the sacrifices you have to make for welfare and a stable economy. As long as the growth isn’t negative, we’re still gold.

    I am in the process of applying for another credit card to replace a few I have now. I currently have 7 credit cards, and only 3 have a balance of less than 50%…the rest have $0 balance. I would say collectively I have about 25-30% balance if you add them all up and divide out the balances.

    I would like to consolidate down to 4 cards (1 visa, amex, mc, disc) so I don’t have so many credit cards.

    My question is: Should I cancel the cards I don’t want now THEN apply for another, or leave them open and apply THEN close them when I am approved?

    All cards I want to cancel have $0 balance, and I am wanting to replace one with a better interest rate. My credit is excellent. I just don’t know which I should do first.

    I know when buying a car it is good to have open credit to keep the debt/income ratio at a sweet spot, but I am unsure if it is the same with credit cards.

    I hope I explained this well! Thanks for all the help!
    To further clarify. I do not want MORE cards! I want LESS cards! I want to replace 4 cards with 1 card! I was just unsure if I should cancel first, or cancel later! Thanks for the awesome replies though…a couple have clarified my situation for me!

    Pregnant, but unhappy in my relationship. Should I stay in an unhappy relationship for the sake of my child?
    Warning: This is long and drawn out. I apologize, but all the fine details really are necessary.

    My fiance and I have been together for three years, engaged for a year and a half. Shortly after we got engaged, he lost his job at a computer software company, due to massive layoffs. (Thanks, recession!) He found another job, managing a small store. He obviously took a large pay cut, but in this economy beggars can’t be choosers. I was working a job part-time as a bartender, and going to school full time to finish my bachelor’s degree, but I wasn’t pulling in much more than $1400 a month.

    When it comes to finances, my fiance is an idiot. I didn’t realize how much of a financial hole he’d dug himself into until he lost his first job. His motorcycle was repossessed. He had $27,675 in credit card debt. Thankfully, because of my grandparents, I’d learned how to manage money at a young age, so I took the reins and decided to handle our finances myself. I saved and budgeted, clipped coupons, picked up extra shifts when we needed money for a bill (or to pay off one of his credit cards, or to pay off one of his many parking/speeding tickets). I cajoled him into opening a savings account and putting at least $50 a month in it, in case of an emergency. It was tough, but we were getting by. I managed to help him get rid of nearly $10,000 in his credit card debt, and even though money was tight, our bills were paid.

    He lost this job almost four months ago, because his district manager discovered he was damaging out products and taking them home, or refunding them at other stores and pocketing the cash. Rather than file charges against him, they opted to allow him to resign quietly.

    I found out I was pregnant the same day. Seriously. THE SAME DAY.

    We had no money, save for a small amount I’d stashed away in my savings account. I said to him, “Well, you’ve been putting away your money in your savings account, right? There should at least be a grand or two in there by now, right?”

    Wrong. Turns out he’d been spending it on random stuff he didn’t need: designer shoes, ties, nights out at the titty bar with his buddies.

    So, I took stock of our assets, and combined with the payout he received for his vacation time he had accrued, and my $1500.00 from my savings, we had $3500 to our names. We were flat broke. I couldn’t afford to pay the bills with the small amount of money I brought in, and he didn’t qualify for unemployment since he resigned.

    We had to move in with my parents. In Georgia. That’s a twelve-hour drive with a U-Haul and three cats. I am 26 years old, living with my parents, with my deadbeat fiance. It’s official, I suck. I am miserable.

    Thankfully, I’ve found a decent-paying job (full-time, unfortunately, so my last semester of school will have to wait for now) so we have some money coming in now. Our savings are gone. I used the last of it to pay off my fiance’s car note, which saves us $400.00 a months. I try to help out with bills as much as I can, and I’m stashing every bit I can in a savings account. I’m nearly four months pregnant now, so it’s time to start picking up baby stuff. I’ll be moving into my own house next week, thank God. I’m so thankful that my family was willing to help me for these past few months, I couldn’t have done it without them.

    The fiance on the other hand? Not only has my fiance not attempted to find a job, he is eating my parents out of house and home, leaves lights on all over the place, doesn’t do a damn thing to help my father around the property (My parents have a small 20-acre farm) and is more than content to sit back and let me foot the bills. I finally had to call in a favor with a family friend to get him a crappy job paying $9.00 an hour, just so he’s getting out of the house and doing something.

    He blows every bit of money he makes on alcohol, or gas, or junk food. He has to go back to Louisiana (where we’re from) in a week to stand trial for a DUI that he’d gotten a couple of years ago. He expects me to supply him with enough gas money to get there and back.

    I’m inclined to tell him to just stay there and mooch off his parents for a while. I’m tired of having to hold his hand and be the adult, while he acts like a 30 year old child. I’m tired of picking up the pieces and making excuses for him. I’m just sick of it. I have a baby coming that I need to worry about, and I’ll be damned if I get stuck raising a 30 year old and an infant at the same time.

    My family tells me this is just a rough patch, that he loves me and I need to stick it out for the sake of our baby. I’m thinking I’d rather struggle and do it on my own without this albatross around my neck. What do you guys think
    Poppy- Why would I give up my child? It’s not its fault that it has a loser for a sperm donor.

    To those advising me to “get on birth control”, put a sock in it. I was on birth control when I got pregnant, thank you very much. I took my pill religiously. I did take antibiotics for a kidney infection a few months ago, but it wasn’t the same month I got pregnant. So…I don’t know, but it happened. *shrug*

  • Shelba says:

    the us has a very low savings rate. the big question is how do you increase it

    1. bring down inflation rates when products and services are cheaper
    2. high paying jobs need to to the us.
    3. the us educational attainment levels need to rise especially in manufacturing, production, and technology sectors
    4. the income structure needs to be reformed so that the the top 10% or those making $100,000 or more a year don’t get all the money
    5. teach consumers the importance and significance of savings.

    these are first big areas

    BRING DOWN RENTS EXHIBIT 1

    1. the rents and mortgage payments are too high and don’t come down much even during tough times. this takes a bite out of income
    2. lack of room-mates and room-mates that don’t pay their fair share leads to greater cost and since many can’t afford rent and mortgage payments themselves, the income share that goes toward rent and mortgage payments is very high.
    3. the rent paid in apartments do not create wealth or additional income because you can’t own and as soon as fall behind, you get kicked out.
    4. the landlords more often than not raise rents too high, fast, and excessive to soak their tenants out of income and homes are way over-priced and all this discourages savings.
    5. if rents came down to favorable levels consumers would have more money to save and put into banks.

    RESTORE FAMILY FINANCIAL POLICIES- EXHIBIT 2

    1. the family should come first for saving and when parents and close of kin set up one big family account and put all the money together, it encourages trust and more responsible saving.
    2. the family is one source most people will trust when it comes to savings and when the family is absent or non-existent, there is greater concern for materialism and waste and of course no savings and money to fall back on.
    3. when family members put all their money into one big account, there is greater accountability and larger pool and this allows for investment possibilities to get a return on it.
    4. during critical times when banks refuse to lend or family members need big sums of money, the large pool allows for easy borrowing and since its family, it can be gotten much faster

    LOWER TAX RATES ON THOSE MAKING $100,000 OR LESS A YEAR- EXHIBIT 3

    1. these groups should see large tax reductions and this would encourage saving
    2. the government could impose the same tax and instead invest their money in a bank and after so many years release it back to them
    3. the high tax rates are too much especially as more as single and un-married and have kids and tax reductions are needed
    4. the tax rates should be both at local and state level as well as federal and should combined no more than 15% of income

    PHASE 2- DIFFICULTIES WITH SAVING MONEY IN BANKS

    1. banks do not lend the deposits consumers made back into to their communities and middle and low income groups actually see disinvestment as they can put money in but can’t borrow. thus, no business or wealth creation discourages saving
    2. banks go behind the scenes and report racial and socio-economic statistics of how much money certain groups put in and its at local, state, and federal level. once its discovered they have money, attempts to disinvest their communities occur
    3. banks do not respect savers from all socio-economic groups and will use their savings to bring down their communities and reestablish a highly polarized economic system
    4. consumers have opposition to saving when there is no incentive to invest and the returns are low and prefer riskier and higher return investments such as stocks and bonds as opposed to banks, but they are not liquid and easily convertible to cash.
    5. kids discourage savings and lack of sufficient child support makes it difficult
    6. welfare and social policies discourages working and the benefits are too low to afford even the basics of life

    ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION OF THOSE OPPRESSED

    1. once those who have been historically oppressed and marginalized start saving money, the system tears up the banks and ensure they do not benefit from capital created
    2. the money saved will never recycle back into their community and be sued to build wealth and create business

  • Sofia says:

    I have three credit cards. One with 0% balance until next March, one with 12.4%, one with 16.45%. Recently received an offer from 16.45% regarding promotional balance transfer for 0% APR until next September. None of the credit cards are near limit and I pay around $500 to $600 per month on these three credit cards. Is it better to combine all three balances in one that promotes 0% APR until next September and pay the same amount $500 per month on one account? or is it better to separate the balances in multiple credit card accounts? My total debt is around $8000. Thank you all in advance!
    $8000 credit card debt wasn’t used for any shopping. I was out of job for a year and I had to make mortgage, utility and all the other necessary payments. I had to use all my savings and got a little help from credit card. I am planning to pay my debt off within a year and I make enough money to contribute $500 to $600 towards my credit card payment. I just the liked the idea of combining all accounts under 0% APR.

  • Katelynn says:

    I have 4 credit cards. One of them has a $100 dollar balance because I have paid it way down. Discover has a $900 dollar balance and the other 2 have $1400 dollar balances each. I plan on paying the $100 dollar balance card off today, and I make $300 dollar payments on each of them every month. Will it increase my FICO to pay the balance off of 2 of the cards and combine them all on a balance transfer to my Citi Bank card, or will it make my score lower? I want to make a higher score, and have been slowly digging my self out of debt since a bad divorce. Currently, my fico is 218.
    My fico is 718, oops! I typed it wrong.

  • Katelynn says:

    At the moment I’ve accrued a little over 49k in college loans. They’re in deferment right now though until 12/08 and the others are due 6 months from now. I have 4 credit cards, combined balance of 1,500. A car loan balance of 11,770. Another bank loan of 1,600. My mother suggest I get back into school, have an in school deferment. What is the best course of action to get better credit ( about 650 now) and put myself in a good position to purchase a new car.

  • Fred says:

    How difficult is it to get approved for an apartment through rentsafe, residentcheck, etc? I have no criminal record, but a 550 credit score. My income (when combined with my husband’s, whose credit score is the same) is four times the amount owed for rent, and our current debt to income ratio, not including the apartment, is about 28%. Any ideas? I don’t want to apply for more than one, because getting rejected will hurt my score even more.
    We have no rental history, we inherited a home which we lived in for five years, but recently got a job offer (in another state) and can not get approved for a home loan, and not much time.

    I am working and never save or budget for anything!

  • Howard says:

    I’m a junior in college. I will be able to get my philosophy BA as early as this fall. I had always wanted to be a lawyer, but I’ve been questioning that route lately. With a decent LSAT I could probably go to a top law school, and that would be my most practical option, but I don’t really feel ready or committed to law.

    I’ve got more growing to do personally and intellectually. It seems I’m discovering a new idea every day. I’m going to add an English major thus semester and snuff in 36 English credit hours in the next 3 semesters. What does thus have to deal with law? I have no idea. But I love reading. I love literature and writing, and I could see myself as a writer in the future.

    I recently thought if attempting a philosophy phd, but research doesn’t seem too fun, and I have a 1/300 chance of getting a professorship afterward.

    It also seems too late to try since I just switched to a philosophy major before last semester. I feel that I wafted my first two years political science major then a history major then a philosophy major and now a philosophy and English double major.

    I’m confused about my long term plans. Would it be wise to commit myself to applying to law school this fall? Or should I just enjoy learning and keep growing and see where things turn out after next year and then take a year off and sort things out?

    The only realistic option is to be a lawyer, but it has to pertain to art and writing and philosophy. Maybe a could combine these and be some kind of practicing lawyer with an artistic and philosophical side. Does that seem plausible?
