  • Audi’s SQ5 is worthy of its price tag

    Posted 2017-11-02 14:43:13 by: Administrator

    I’ve sometimes been accused of being a socialist because I find it difficult to justify most high-priced automobiles. I’m not a socialist. I love the Audi SQ5, which has been redesigned for 2018 and will cost nearly $66,000 fully optioned. But if you ask me for that kind of money, I am demanding something in return. “Prestige” alone won’t do it. You are selling the vehicle to me, not my neighbors. What I buy has to please and make sense to me. The 2018 SQ5 does that. It is a beautiful machine but is not a motorized bauble. It is a vehicle with tangibly upgraded and useful technology. It has a new turbocharged 3.0-liter gasoline V-6 engine that delivers 354 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Horsepower approximately remains the same as previous SQ5 models, but torque, engine twisting power, the real work of the engine, has been improved. It produces about 23 more pound-feet of torque than its predecessor but does it at lower engine revolutions than previous models. The movement is quick, smooth. You fall in love with it. Handling is excellent. I live in a wonderfully twisty and undulating section of Northern Virginia. The new SQ5 seems engineered to fit the topography. Long highway drives in this one are a delight. You, of course, are responsible for paying attention to the road and surrounding traffic. But the new SQ5, with Prestige and S-Sport trim packages, offers “driver assistance” items that reduce the stress of motoring in long-distance, high-speed traffic and moving through urban congestion. The Sport package comes with an adaptive air suspension that delivers a smooth ride on well-paved or chronically pockmarked surfaces. Coupled with the new V-6 engine and all-new chassis, driving feels like flying in this one. A virtual driver’s cockpit that digitally displays vehicle speed; blind-side monitoring and a top view camera system; dual-pane acoustic glass for front and side windows that support the soundproofing of a whisper-quiet ...

  • The Washington math that would whack 401(k) funds for 49 million Americans

    Posted 2017-11-02 14:43:13 by: Administrator

    When I write about the strange ways that Washington math sometimes works, I’m usually sort of playful. That’s because if you’ve dealt with real-world accounting for a long time, as I have, Washington math can be silly enough to make you laugh. But today I’m afraid that flawed Washington budget math is likely to do serious damage to tens of millions of Americans who are trying to save for their retirements. Given that the number of people earning substantial pensions is shrinking rapidly and Social Security benefits aren’t enough to live on, saving for retirement is essential. That’s why it’s so appalling to see Congress — okay, many of its Republicans — considering a proposal that would hamper the retirement prospects of about 49 million Americans to benefit the heirs of the 5,500 or so estates a year that are currently subject to estate tax. [] This may happen because of Washington’s bizarre budget math. What has me close to ranting is the serious chance that the tax-cut bill would greatly reduce the tax deductions that about 49 million people now get when they stash money into 401(k) plans and similar tax-deferred retirement accounts. President Trump tweeted on Monday: “There will be NO change to your 401(k). This has always been a great and popular middle class tax break that works, and it stays!” Well, maybe. After Republicans, including Chairman Kevin Brady of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, said that shrinking the tax-deductible amount is being actively considered, Trump seems to have backed off at least a little bit, and maybe more. Here’s the problem I have with the budget math of limiting 401(k) contributions. The money that my employers and I put into my 401(k) plans over decades was tax-deductible at the time and is becoming taxable as I take out my annual “required minimum distributions.” I suspect that if you reconciled the taxes I’m paying on my distributions with the deductions when the ...

  • The financial lessons behind the allegations against Paul Manafort

    Posted 2017-11-02 14:43:12 by: Administrator

    Living too large is often what brings criminals down. Topping the news right now is the indictment of two Trump campaign officials as part of the government’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. The indictment alleges former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates earned millions working as agents of the Ukrainian government. They are accused of hiding much of this money, which they allegedly used to pay for their luxurious lifestyles. The indictment says, “In order to hide Ukraine payments from United States authorities, from approximately 2006 through at least 2016, Manafort and Gates laundered the money through scores of United States and foreign corporations, partnerships, and bank accounts.” In such cases, it always comes down to “follow the money.” Manafort is accused of laundering more than $18 million. Gates allegedly transferred more than $3 million from offshore accounts. I’m programmed to look for financial lessons in most things. So I was particularly interested in the details coming out about what Manafort and Gates did with their supposed ill-gotten gains. Here’s what the indictment says: ●“Manafort used his hidden overseas wealth to enjoy a lavish lifestyle in the United States, without paying taxes on that income. Manafort, without reporting the income to his tax preparer or the United States, spent millions of dollars on luxury goods and services for himself and his extended family through payments wired from offshore nominee accounts to United States vendors.” ●Manafort allegedly withdrew money from offshore accounts to purchase multimillion-dollar properties. Some of his spending also allegedly included the purchase of four Range Rovers that cost a total of $210,705 and a Mercedes-Benz for $62,750; landscaping at a Hamptons property; and improvements to a house in Palm Beach, Fla. Manafort allegedly also spent $934,350 on antique rugs at a store in Alexandria, Va.; ...

  • The Transit Connect: A good way for Ford to carry itself to the future

    Posted 2017-10-24 15:01:58 by: Administrator

    The automobile industry faces the future with caution. The car companies must passionately pursue tomorrow, but they cannot be reckless in that pursuit. They must remain concerned about and aware of the current needs, wants, biases and favored fantasies of their customers. It is a tense dance in which each step can lead to success or failure. It is made more difficult by a singular reality: There are no more “home” markets, not really. Getting it wrong in one place might spell doom for a product somewhere else in the world and lead to the loss of billions in the regional currency. Getting it right, perhaps with only a few modifications for global production and sales, will spell success. Witness the 2017 Ford Transit van, both the full-size cargo model and the compact Connect Titanium Wagon passenger model, the latter driven for this column. They are European concepts — engineered and sold in Britain in the 1960s and then taken by Ford to Europe and Asia. They are very European in demeanor — “full size” yet compact in presentation, deliberately multipurpose, designed to be driven on congested streets and parked in small garages. For years, I saw Transits on European streets, used as commercial vans for family businesses and other small companies. They were the best-selling light commercial vans in Europe for 40 years. Ford brought the Transit to North America, primarily the United States, as 2016 models. Here, in the Land of Minivans and SUVs, they underwent more changes. Small businesses, of course, loved the high roof and overhead stowage shelves of the larger models, features thankfully retained on the Connect Wagon passenger types. But those small-business owners also had families and social lives. Ford offered them the Transit Connect Wagon XLT (also marketed as the Titanium Long Wheelbase in some regions). It is smaller than the larger Transit van yet still can comfortably seat up to seven people. It has a smaller engine — a 2.5-liter inline ...

  • Why Trump might be driving Amazon HQ2 to Canada

    Posted 2017-10-24 15:01:58 by: Administrator

    (Reed Saxon/AP) One of the most interesting parlor games in the business world these days is trying to guess where Amazon.com will locate its second headquarters and the 50,000 jobs that will supposedly be created by Amazon HQ2. So it’s time for me to get my bet down, and I pick . . . Toronto. As in Ontario. As in Canada. I’m not picking the Washington area — home of The Washington Post and many of my journalistic colleagues — which is trying to entice Amazon. And I’m not picking my home state of New Jersey, which desperately needs the reputational enhancement, economic stimulus and personal income tax revenue that HQ2 would create. I’m picking Toronto. Why? Partly because although Amazon said it was looking for a site in North America, it didn’t say it was looking in the United States. And partly because I think that if I were Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon (and owner of The Post), I’d find Toronto attractive in ways that the United States once was but no longer is under Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant, anti-intellectual and anti-Bezos presidency. Canada, as my friends have explained to me, has an immigration system that gives preference to highly educated people. That’s as opposed to the U.S. system, which (perfectly understandably) places a premium on reuniting families. That’s a major advantage for Canada, given that Amazon is no doubt hoping to lure thousands of highly qualified non-North American people to join the company. Even though Canadian English is somewhat different from U.S. English — if you’ve spent time north of our border, you know what I’m talking aboot — people at Toronto HQ2 would have no language problems communicating with people at Seattle HQ1. There would be all sorts of language problems, I think, if Bezos picked a site in Mexico. Trump boasts endlessly about all the U.S. jobs that he claims to be creating now and that his policies will create in the future. So imagine one of the most desirable ...

  • Equifax hack still evokes dread, fear — and cartoons

    Posted 2017-10-24 15:01:57 by: Administrator

    The epic Equifax data breach could make for some creative Halloween costumes. If there’s a contest, I bet you’ll win if you dress up like a horrifying hacker holding stolen credit reports. Editorial cartoonists have certainly captured the rampant sense of dread and fear. Signe Wilkinson’s depiction of the compromise of 145.5 million consumer files by Equifax reflects the attitude of many folks I’ve been hearing from. The cartoon portrays two people buying coffee. The first customer is paying with plastic and says, “I’m afraid my credit card will be hacked!” The other says, “I’m not.” Why isn’t the second customer worried? She’s buying her coffee with cash. A cartoon from Nick Anderson speaks volumes. In it, an elderly couple is in the office of an Equifax executive whom they tell, “We’re dropping your creditability rating to zero.” The hole Equifax left in its computer system exposed Social Security, credit card and driver’s license numbers. Hackers also got addresses and birth dates. The breach left people afraid and in search of information. Here are some recent questions I received. I relayed the first two to an Equifax spokesman. Q: Did the hackers in the Equifax breach gain access to my credit-freeze PIN number? Equifax: The PINs associated with security freezes were not impacted by the breach. Q: My son lives in Spain. with his wife and baby. All three have Social Security numbers. I asked him to go to the Equifax site to see whether their info had been hacked. He emailed me that the Equifax site was blocked to people overseas. Is this the case? Equifax: No, the site is not blocked to people overseas. However, there are some situations where an IP address may be restricted, due to where the person lives. I’m taking the rest of the questions from here. Q: I took advantage of the Equifax-offered credit lock. However, from my research, it appears that I would also need to lock my credit with Experian and ...

  • Toyota’s 2017 Avalon provides first-class treatment

    Posted 2017-06-26 13:26:56 by: Administrator

    The Avalon is the best Buick Toyota ever made. Don’t laugh . . . or be confused. Buick, the car division, has been around since 1903. Actually, considering its first experimentation with engines, it’s been in existence since 1899. General Motors came along and established Buick as one of its premium full-size-sedan divisions in 1908. “One of”? Yeah. GM positioned Buick behind Cadillac, its marketing “symbol of excellence,” the most premium of premium in the world of automobiles. Buick continued to sell well, especially the big, comfortable LaCrosse. But in the premium-sedan wars, it sold as a second-class car for second-class citizens. Toyota figured this out in the late 1990s. The Buick LaCrosse was a good car attracting loyal buyers spending good money. But they weren’t enthusiastically pursued by other car companies — heck, not even by General Motors. They were second-class automotive citizens, the people who couldn’t buy Cadillac. Toyota decided to give those folks quality with prestige and good looks at a reasonable price. It gave them the Avalon, a premium full-size sedan not topped by anything else in the Toyota brand. The Avalon became a best seller and remains so. Why? Toyota did not make a traditional General Motors mistake — that’s “traditional” as in before GM’s bankruptcy in 2009. Toyota did not forget — nor take for granted — the Avalon car or customers. It constantly updated the car and religiously stayed in contact with the customers. The 2017 Avalon is proof. It is a good car — marketed as Limited, XLE or XLE Premium — that makes the buyer feel second to nothing on the road. I drove the XLE Premium trim version. It was equipped with a 3.5-liter, 24-valve gasoline V-6 (268 horsepower, 248 pound-feet of torque). That was enough power to safely enter the highway and change high-speed lanes without trouble. It had Toyota Safety Sense-P, which includes many available advanced electronic safety items and other ...

  • Some help to sort those new rules on investment advice

    Posted 2017-06-26 13:26:52 by: Administrator

    Despite a lot of pushback from financial-services firms, a new rule should cut down on conflicts of interest in the advice given to investors about their retirement accounts. But based on what I’m hearing from readers, people have a lot to learn about the Labor Department’s fiduciary rule, which requires financial professionals to put their clients’ interests first. To help sort through the confusion that often comes with new rules, Barbara Roper, director of investor protection for the Consumer Federation of America, has been helping me respond to reader queries. Here are some that she couldn’t get to during a recent online discussion. Financial services companies say they oppose the rule because they are looking out for small investors who, according to the firms, won’t be able to get adequate investment advice under the new rule. Since when does this industry care about the little guy? Roper: Industry rule opponents hit on this argument because it sounds a lot better than admitting that you just really don’t want to be legally accountable for acting in customers’ best interests. We at the CFA believe small investors, who are most likely to get investment advice from brokers and insurance agents who have not previously been held to a fiduciary standard, will be the biggest beneficiaries of the rule. They will no longer have to give up their right to best-interest advice. And early experience since firms began announcing their implementation plans for the rule clearly shows that there are firms who are willing to serve even the smallest retirement accounts under a fiduciary standard. Does “in my best interest” always mean the least expensive option, or are there some other criteria that an adviser uses? Roper: While minimizing costs is important, the lowest-cost option is not always the best option, and the Labor Department rule does not require advisers to recommend the least expensive investment. Instead, they are required to ...

  • How the free-lunch fallacy is hurting our government, health care and retirement

    Posted 2017-05-22 11:57:44 by: Administrator

    One of the biggest problems our country has is the growing idea that there really is such a thing as a free lunch: that we can get magic money to pay for things we don’t want to pay for out of our own pockets. I think the free-lunch fallacy helps explain why three of our nation’s biggest problems seem so intractable: having a rational health-care system; producing a reasonable federal budget; and dealing with the “retirement crisis.” Let me explain how I came up with this linkage. As a born contrarian — okay, as a stubborn old guy — I tend to do the opposite of what’s popular. So instead of rushing to opine about the newest excesses enveloping Our Nation’s Capital, I decided recently to spend quantity time reading two books that interested me, taking some deep breaths and doing some thinking. Both of the books — “” by Elisabeth Rosenthal (Penguin Press, 2017), and “” by Gene Steuerle (Century Foundation Press, 2014) — offer amazingly helpful history and insight into how our health care and federal budget systems, respectively, have turned into such messes. In addition, I got a bonus. Because I read both books at the same time, I saw the “free lunch” link between them. That, in turn, led me to get some stock and bond numbers that help explain why we as a nation haven’t set aside enough money to pay for baby boomers’ retirement. Health care first. Rosenthal artfully tracks the way medicine has become a business dominated by giant health-care conglomerates that try to shake more money out of insurance companies and hapless uninsured people by charging absurd amounts for procedures, creating outrageous fees and imposing separate charges for almost everything. She offers countless, enraging examples of people burned by the system, and of doctors and other medical professionals frustrated by health-care firms’ interest in gouging people rather than helping them. The money-from-the-sky theory is the idea that the more you charge, ...

  • From ‘Trump bump’ to ‘Trump slump’: How to navigate your investments

    Posted 2017-05-22 11:57:43 by: Administrator

    There’s at least one certainty about the stock market. It’ll go up and eventually come down. Last week, we witnessed this truth about investing. The markets responded with trepidation after a series of scandals hit President Trump. Trump shared highly classified information with Russian diplomats. He fired FBI Director James B. Comey. He may have tried to get Comey to end an investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. And now a special counsel has been appointed to investigate possible Russian interference in the election. Many experts think it wasn’t these controversies that pushed stocks down. It’s that the scandals may get in the way of tax cuts and other business-friendly legislative measures. So here we are, regular investors just trying to grow our money enough to retire or send our kids to college. As the stock market climbed in recent months, people began to call it the “Trump bump.” [] But all good things come to an end in the investing world. The question now is: Are we about to see a “Trump slump,” and, if so, is there anything you should be doing with your investments? Here’s a roundup of advice from some certified financial planners. Carolyn McClanahan, founder of Life Planning Partners in Jacksonville, Fla., says politics should not play any part in your investment decisions. “People should have an appropriate asset allocation based on their goals, time frame, and financial and psychological ability to take risk,” she added. “Don’t pay attention to the noise that politics creates.” Larry Stein, president of Disciplined Investment Management in Deerfield, Ill., says Trump was getting too much credit for the market rise anyway. “The bump was driven largely by stronger-than-expected [corporate] earnings, much of it due to surprisingly strong results overseas,” he said. “Optimism around the election may have added an extra jolt to the positive environment, but that wasn’t the main driver.” ...

  • Twin reports by Pew show many families are economically fragile

    Posted 2017-05-10 10:44:47 by: Administrator

    Twin reports by the Pew Charitable Trusts substantiate what too many people know firsthand. Despite a better economy, a lot of families are struggling financially. And often it’s because of instability in their pay or financial emergencies. Pew has been studying the impact that income volatility and financial shocks can have on people’s ability to budget and save. For the two new reports, Pew analyzed its Survey of American Family Finances from two years, 2014 and 2015. It’s important research that’s much needed in public policy debates. For instance, the health-care discussion is about access to quality care and the ability of families to pay for that access. But if we don’t fully understand the economic instability that plagues many families, politicians end up with a misguided sense of what makes for “affordable” health insurance. The Pew research gives richer context to bewildering utterances from elected officials who claim that some people are not prioritizing health care in their personal budgets. Remember the congressman who said folks were choosing to buy a smartphone over paying for health insurance? In defense of the GOP’s first attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah said: “Americans have choices. And they’ve got to make a choice. And so, maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want . . . they should invest it in their own health care.” [] People are not choosing to stay sick or avoid preventive care because they’d rather spend the money on a glitzy new phone. With stretched and unsteady incomes, they are choosing to pay rent or fix the car so they can get to work and not lose the job that keeps food on the table. In its report on income volatility, Pew looked at those people who experienced a particularly strong pay swing, which was defined as a year-over-year change in income of 25 percent or more. Pew found that at least 1 in 4 households — ...

  • Let’s face it, your millennial is still really a financial rookie

    Posted 2017-05-07 18:56:42 by: Administrator

    Perhaps you’re a good money manager and you taught your children well. Or maybe you struggle royally with your finances and haven’t passed on good habits. Either way, we parents of young adults tend to think that when our children turn 18, our job is nearly done. They hit 21, and we’re like, “It’s party time.” After that point, you might think that if they make a money mistake, it’s on them, right? Wrong. They will enter a complicated world and face financial challenges harder to solve than a Rubik’s Cube. There are so many ways they can get this money thing wrong. So be prepared to stay on parenting duty. You’ll still be needed. With this in mind — and with graduation season upon us — many parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles often ask me for a recommendation on a financial book for their newly minted young adult. This year, I have a new suggestion, which will double as this month’s Color of Money Book Club pick. It’s “” (Touchstone, $16.99) by Beth Kobliner. The author is a financial journalist who first published this book 20 years ago. She has just released an updated version that is an all-in-one guide for millennials. In 2016, there were about 80 million millennials, according to the Pew Research Center. I wonder how many are truly prepared to tackle today’s financial issues. If we go by the many surveys about this generation’s money habits, a lot aren’t ready. [] Millennials want what most Americans want — a home, debt-free living and, eventually, a comfortable retirement. Yet, when asked, only 49 percent said they have a plan to live out that dream, according to Bank of the West. The survey also found that, in practice, millennials prioritize saving for travel over putting away money for retirement or a home. This makes sense. They aren’t being irresponsible. They’re acting their age. They want new experiences and, in their minds, they have plenty of time to save. Kobliner knows her audience. She ...

  • Toyota’s Prius Prime: Think of it as a Tesla for the rest of us

    Posted 2017-05-07 18:56:42 by: Administrator

    This is how you compete: You study rivals who have taken giant steps forward. You look at competitors who are giving you real market challenges, but you proceed, unafraid, always thinking about and looking at the future. You look at your own success — a technical, engineering and commercial win that opened the market for electric vehicles of all sorts, including gas-electric hybrids, plug-ins, plug-in hybrids, electric-only. You don’t rest on your laurels. In fact, you view laurels as obstacles. You just want to get better and better … and better … and inarguably remain the best. Welcome to the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime hatchback. The Prius Prime replaces the Prius Plug-in, which operates for short mileage (about 14 miles as used by this column) electric-only and can motor on for nearly 50 miles per gallon as a gasoline-electric hybrid. The Prius Prime operates in much the same manner — only better, much better. The Prius Prime uses a larger lithium-ion battery to deliver 25 miles in electric-only mode. You plug it in to recharge. But if you want to use the front-wheel-drive hatchback as a gasoline-electric hybrid, you fill its11.3-gallon tank with regular unleaded fuel that feeds a 1.8-liter, 16-valve, inline four-cylinder engine/generator. Working in tandem with the car’s battery-powered motors, the hybrid gas-electric system can go 55 miles per gallon. That is at least five miles per gallon more than a regular Prius, which already delivers some of the best fuel efficiency in the hybrid-electric world. I kept thinking “Tesla” during my time in the Prius Prime. That is because much of the technology in the Prius Prime reminds me of what is found in the Tesla — at a much higher cost. But the Prius Prime really competes against models such as the Chevrolet Volt hatchback (a plug-in electric hybrid), the Ford Fusion Energi sedan, the Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid and, yes, the new-for-2017 Hyundai Ioniq and Kia Niro hybrids. I’ll start an ...
