Weekend Studying – Extra money or extra pension?
I hope you had an excellent week…
This topic caught my eye this week, would you somewhat have extra money now or extra pension later?
Some ideas in a bit!
First up, a number of latest posts on my web site:
Final weekend I wrote concerning the inventory market being not-so-easy to beat, which I agree with – though I’ve at all times felt in Canada in the case of our market particularly, you might hearth any Canadian-focused cash supervisor, purchase some Canadian particular person shares for revenue and progress, and earn related if not higher at occasions returns than our TSX index.
Whereas inflation is difficult, and excessive inflation just isn’t good for anybody, I attempted to take a look at the upsides to inflation together with built-in authorities advantages and any tax-free financial savings room coming January 2024.
Weekend Studying – Extra money or extra pension?
“Mo Cash Mo Issues“?
Ha. All of us want. The quote is in reference to a track by American rapper The Infamous B.I.G., launched by means of Unhealthy Boy Information and Arista Information, again in 1997.
You would possibly recall Sean John Combs based Unhealthy Boy Information, higher generally known as stage names like Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, or Diddy, and there could possibly be extra!?

On a critical notice, I bought the inspiration for this week’s headline from Rob Carrick at The Globe and Mail. He requested:
“What do Canadian employees want extra proper now – larger salaries or higher pensions?” – Article (subscription).
My reply: pensions or at the very least your personal pension.
From my upside to inflation narrative, on the most elementary stage, inflation is a rise within the value of products and providers over time. Mainly, the ebbs-and-flows of provide and demand in motion and people actions can impression you and me.
The upside to inflation
Whereas way more cash, now, looks like an excellent thought for positive, I consider extra spending and extra money in circulation is definitely not going to trigger inflation to go down (the place it ought to).
Economies and companies inside economies, cycle.
Inflation, an excessive amount of growth the truth is, and contractions on occasion, are very regular.
Try this graphic, associated so far, from the Canadian Encyclopedia:
Whereas can I recognize inflationary spikes and an excessive amount of inflation just isn’t good for anybody, myself included, since all of us must react vs. plan to that state of affairs, I’d MUCH somewhat have a viable pension in my future to depend on vs. a small money infusion now.
The important thing causes:
- There are too many unknowns in the case of any (monetary) future. The extra certainty, the extra reliable revenue, the higher.
- My human capital is excessive now however I do know my capacity or functionality to earn a residing will decline as I age. I think the identical for you. That’s simply the way in which life goes.
- The highest causes, at present, for providing worker retirement advantages relate to each worker retention and worker recruitment – with the target to assist mitigate total monetary stress. That’s a win for workers but in addition a win for employers. The primary and actually solely rule of any accountable supervisor is: rent and retain good individuals.
Certain, I’d love extra revenue now to spend towards inflation. All of us would. However the higher and extra accountable answer is at all times ahead wanting.
Listed here are some fascinating feedback from the Globe article. Keep for the feedback. 🙂
“The typical Canadian doesn’t totally perceive the query, not to mention have the reply. I strongly consider that the typical employee could be higher served by having significant (enough) outlined and listed revenue for all times. Correctly designed, a pension is the least costly and most effective solution to make that occur. The pooling of mortality threat is the first cause, one thing that’s merely not out there to an a person, irrespective of how a lot they make or save. Point out an annuity, and peoples heads explode.”
“Folks must study to take accountability for themselves. How a lot tax cash could be saved if we lower applications and simply had one common fundamental revenue. What if we simplified the tax system and had perhaps 2 or 3 tiers and that’s it. We wouldn’t want so many authorities employees to manage applications. The tax financial savings could be monumental. I do know simplifying the tax system would by no means occur as a result of making it advanced is how the federal government creates jobs. And politicians wouldn’t have the ability to provide out cash in return for subsidies, kickbacks, and votes.”
“CPP (together with OAS and GIS) basically establishes a assured annual revenue for retirees over the age of 65. CPP ensures each retiree has a pension–even whether it is only a small one.
OAS ensures each retiree who doesn’t have important extra revenue from different sources has some extra money.
GIS ensures that seniors who’ve lower than a sure revenue (at the moment about $21,000 per yr) have their revenue elevated to that sure revenue.”
Ideas people? Open to your feedback too!!
Past extra money or extra pension…
Early retiree Carl is hardly involved a few pension. He took issues into his personal palms years in the past. He shared a number of massive ass spending experiments right here. One in all them was a helicopter experience that price $1,400 USD for the enjoyable of it. Good on him!
I loved Jon Chevreau’s abstract of the FIRE motion (I’ve the identical take) and why he retains working, now into his 70s, as a part of his Victory Lap Retirement.
I do know fairly a number of 60-somethings that might completely maintain working if they may, to stay engaged by way of decreased hours and stress – proper now. Sadly, most organizations will not be established this manner – the irony is – by many Boomers themselves.
Most near-retirees would maintain working if they may cut back hours and stress
