Walmart MoneyCard – Walmart.com – Walmart.com

Banking on the Walmart MoneyCard

The Walmart MoneyCard is a reloadable prepaid card that works just like a check card or debit card. It’s so easy to get and use the account the same way you use a checking account, plus it has some useful extra benefits. One really exciting benefit it has over a regular bank’s check card is you earn cash back on any money you spend at Walmart.

Here’s how that works: At the end of every year you can get up to $75 in cash back because you earn 3 percent for everything you buy from Walmart.com, 2 percent for any money you spend at Murphy USA and Walmart fuel stations, and 1 percent on anything you buy in Walmart stores. So it’s like winning twice when you use the Walmart MoneyCard thanks to earning money while you take advantage of Walmart’s Every Day Low Prices.

Personal directive | Alberta.ca

Overview

Every Albertan who is at least 18 years old should have:

Alberta does not have living wills, but instead has personal directives. If you suffer a serious injury or illness, you may not be able to make decisions. This could be temporary or long term.

If you have a personal directive, the person or people you’ve picked to be your agent would have legal authority to make personal decisions for you.

You can register your personal directive with the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (OPGT) so healthcare providers can easily find your agent or agents if something happens to you.

How Money Laundering Works | HowStuffWorks

As of September 2018, Paul Manafort, who served at one time as President Trump’s campaign chairman, has been found guilty on eight counts of tax and bank fraud. In a separate trial, he will be prosecuted for money laundering. The money laundering charges have to do with a scheme that follows a tried and true method for rinsing the dirt off your treasure. Manafort is alleged to have garnered millions from the former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Rather than declare these earnings to the IRS and turn over the taxes due, Manafort is said to have placed them in offshore accounts and then used them to buy expensive real estate in the U.S.

Once he owned the properties, prosecutors say he then used them as collateral to take out millions of dollars in loans from U.S. banks. Since the money was in the form of loans rather than income,

Finance is a fund management science. There are three general areas of finance : business finance, public finance and personal finance. The basic principle of finance is saving money and lending money. These operations are accomplished with the help of financial institutions. The science of finance deals with the interrelation of the concepts of time, risk and money.

Economics is a social science. The science of economics studies the production, consumption and distribution of services or goods. The science of economics is trying to explain how economies work and how do different economies interact. The analysis of the science of economics is applied in various fields like finance, business, government, education, law, politics, social institutions, science and many more.
