To a number of people who influenced my life and prepared me for the
job of creating this book:

Chapter 10 Other Sources of Retirement Income. Traditional self-managed retirement accounts, such as IRAs and 401(k)s, typically invest in stocks, bonds, cash equivalents, and mutual funds. These accounts will be used to generate income during retirement.
For many people, the present value of their future pension annuity is their largest financial asset. The retirement income may come from a variety of pension accumulations, including defined contribution plans, defined benefit plans, individual retirement accounts, Keogh plans, and tax deferred annuityplans.
Voluntary carbon offsets have been traded in relatively small volumes and on a
demonstration basis since the late 1980s. Some organizations, such as the Climate Trust
in Oregon, have many years of experience in purchasing and retiring offsets on behalf of
clients or customers (the Climate Trust was established in 1997 to assist new power
plants in Oregon to meet a state regulatory requirement for net CO2 emissions).
Finally, the shape of the spending profile over the pay period, and the motivation
behind it, are important subjects for study in their own right. Our results add to the debate
on whether the industry in “payday loans” exploits self-control problems, by testing
whether households in fact experience a struggle for self-control between paydays.
Chapter 7 When it is time to start saving for retirement, you will want to put the money into a special type of account that gives you tax advantages and retirement income in the future.

Lower investment amounts. The minimum investment for
an individual bond can be as high as $10,000.The minimum
initial investment in a bond fund, by contrast, is often
considerably lower, so even an investor who has limited funds
can participate in the bond market.The minimum initial
investment in most Vanguard bond funds, for example, is
$3,000 per fund for a regular account or $1,000 for an
individual retirement account (IRA) or Uniform Gifts/
Transfers to Minors Act (UGMA/UTMA) account.
Montepio Geral promotes local solidarity initiatives either directly by donations to various
social solidarity institutions or by voluntary work in partnership with social solidarity
institutions, in which employees mobilise to collect donations (books, toys and clothes) for
children in need.
Worthy a special mention is the solidarity action for children suffering from cancer and their
families, through a “Believe” account aimed at raising funds for the construction of a home
to accommodate familiers of children under oncological treatment.
For tax purposes, it is not necessary for the IRS to know whether an indi-
vidual owns stock, only whether he receives income from this stock. Thus, our
measure of an individual’s stock ownership in a given year is based on whether
an individual reported dividends on his federal tax return that year. This divi-
dendmeasure of stock ownership captures all dividends fromstocks and taxable
equity mutual funds. It does not include individuals who invest in stocks or eq-
uity mutual funds only through nontaxable (i.e., retirement) accounts.
