The year in review

Personal Reflections

Many wiki editors contribute, but I would like to thank fyre4ce and FiveK for overhauling the US retirement plan and US tax pages. Several lively forum discussions ensued, with everyone benefiting.
Thanks to BeBH65, DJN, and TedSwippet for providing non-US versions of our new investor pages.
I would also like to thank the forum members whose ideas and insight make the wiki successful.

This section presents the personal viewpoint of LadyGeek.

Our efforts to help non-US investors continues. Non-US versions of our US-focused new investor pages have been created.

US retirement plans received a major overhaul.

US taxes were also revised: MAGI, Marginal tax rate, Payroll tax
