Personal Finance Daily JUNE 10, 2010 Thursday's Personal Finance stories By MarketWatch Don't miss these top stories: Fee disclosure is coming to your 401(k) 15-year-fixed mortgage rate hits record low Global wealth back to pre-crisis levels Investors turn to flexible funds The Senate is working on a big job-creation and tax-break bill that includes seemingly random and disconnected measures -- extending a tax deduction for charitable donations for people 70-1/2 or older, providing Medicaid funding for states, and levying higher taxes on oil companies, to name just a few. But one thing you will no longer find in the bill, because senators stripped it out, is a provision that would have required 401(k) plan providers give participants greater clarity on what they are really paying for the pleasure of investing for their retirement.

The Washington Post : Most Viewed Opinions Columns. June 10th., 2010

  Most Viewed Opinions Columns 1) Nightmare of a jobs report Last month's employment numbers should alarm Obama progressives. 2) Unelectable in California There's a reason California has only elected one GOP candidate to a major office since 1994. 3) Respite on the mound Baseball in Washington, and soccer in South Africa are joyous distractions. 4) A rift for Obama to mend This week's primaries should have been good news for Democrats.
