Best of Money Carnival

Print Friendly

p_125This week I’m honored to host the Best of Money Carnival.

What is the Best of Money Carnival?  Bloggers from around the web submit their favorite post of the week and I get to (Ok, it’s hard work, so I HAD to) choose my 10 favorite posts.  I suspect the top ten list is probably significantly impacted by the mood and perspective of the blogger who puts together the list each week.  So this week I get to be the biased judge Smile.

Thanks to everyone who submitted an article.

    Thanks Graig,

    I was just looking for a weekly roundup of money articles for my site..I’ll just link back to yours.

    What does one have to do to participate in YOUR Money Carnival?

    An impressive list. I sympathize with trying to cull the entries down to the top ten; it’s a tough job, particularly when every post is so good. (If I can make a small suggestion, though, feel free to include my post next time ;) Kidding, Kidding; you made fine selections this time around.) Thanks for hosting!

    Hey Craig, thanks for choosing my article. One of my goals is to try to explain economic and financial news in ways that make sense to those who are too busy to keep up like us PF nerds…

    Great list of articles, having hosted I know how hard it is to choose!
