Faith Based Investing

In looking at the various examples of bad economic news over the last few days, I’ve been struck once again by how the supposedly rational, logical, God-forbid-we-regulate-it-because-it-works-fine-on-its-own free market is driven by the very human fears, frailties, and stupidities that govern so much else of human life. It’s pretty amazing, for instance, to watch Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson saber-rattle China over its trade policies and reiterate the health of the American economy while his own former firm’s hedge funds are getting kicked in the nuts . Or that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke could ...
In many ways this has been a result of the church's stance against policies of Israel. This policy has been controversial both within and outside of the denomination, even resulting in charges of anti-Semitism . The policy was revised in 2006 by another vote of the General Assembly 2 .

Faith Based Investing | Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?
For years I have heard of the Timothy plan (and others). The problem is when you are trying to build your retirement, by cutting out everything that you disagree with, you are hurting yourself financially. The idea is to be able to retire and enjoy life, not spend your “golden years,” at the “golden arches.” So the idea behind it is a good idea, but not very piratical or prudent. As for the denomination specific funds, Lutherans and Catholics faith doesn’t discourage drinking, in fact there are occasions both those denominations will allow alcohol on church property. Whereas the Methodist, ... market research, surveys and trends
Your Finance Guide » Stewardship: Just Another Buzzword? » YFGD20254
The term stewardship is tossed around like a buzzword. Because it is used so often, the word's true meaning has lost a lot of its relevance. Let's look at Merriam Webster's definition of stewardship: 1. The office, duties, and obligations of a steward 2. The conducting, supervising, or managing of something; especially: the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care. Stewardship is one of the most common themes in the Bible. I refer to stewardship as being a faithful manager of the time, skills, and financial resources that God has provided you. How you manage these ... market research, surveys and trends


Religious Funds: Restoring faith in financial markets. (Investing ...
As many world-weary investors continue to lose faith in the stock market, faith-based mutual funds are becoming a growing presence in the investment world. In the past year, 12 religious investment funds have launched, compared to five in the same period in 2000.And, the leaders of the pack this year appear to be the newly created Catholic funds. "What we are seeing today in the explosion of faith-based investing alternatives is Wall Street finally waking up to the fact that there are 60 million Catholics and millions of other religious Americans who want to keep their personal finances from running afoul of their ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Maybe. At the start of August, Medicare’s trustees reported to Congress that Medicare should remain financially in the black through 2029, a 12-year improvement over last year’s estimate. They credited the healthcare reforms carried out by Congress and the Obama administration, citing greater efficiency that would translate to savings for the program. However, there is no guarantee that Medicare will get to retain those federal savings, and no certainty that the savings projected by eliminating subsidies paid to private insurers will result. Additionally, as Concord Coalition executive director Robert Bixby told the Los Angeles ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Socially responsible CDs
for Bankrate. It's an exciting topic and has received a lot of attention following the BP catastrophe and the meltdown in the financial sector. The term socially responsible investing encompasses a broad range of investor activities, the most frequently discussed of which is screening investments for behavior that either does appeal to your conscience or does not. Another tenet is shareholder advocacy and the third is community investing. What's interesting is that there are many investment products that are geared towards these aims. Of course, mutual funds and ETFs are well known but I was surprised to find out that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Guest column: Focus on children is game-changer city needs
Not long ago, Memphis Mayor A C Wharton wrote on this page about the value of investing in ambitious, "game-changing projects" to expand the city's economy, such as fairgrounds redevelopment and Bass Pro Shops' Pyramid deal. I believe we need to focus more on an ambitious approach aimed directly at improving the precarious state of children -- the chief and often forgotten resource -- in our community. High-profile projects don't mean as much without a concurrent focus on improving the lives of children and families. I liken Memphis to a grand, beautiful home -- tons of potential, but a place ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Personal Investment & Financial Planning Q`s: Investing HELOC ...
I'll try to be as concise as possible.  I own two properties; one is a condo, the other is a single family home.  The condo is my primary residence. Between my 1st mortgage and HELOC on the condo, my equity is all eaten up.  If I sold it today, I'd probably break even.  I'm okay with that as long as I'm not "upside down" on it.  I am looking to buy another property later this year that will serve as my primary residence. In re: to the single family property, I rent it out to my mother.  Between the 1st mortgage and what I've used of the HELOC, about $225K is used ...
