Weekend Reading – Spooky Halloween Edition

by Darwin on October 30, 2009

With Halloween upon us, no politics, no rants about our country’s profligate spending, just enjoy the weekend, either with kids of your own or scare the hell out of some trick-or-treaters.  The market’s been acting a bit scary of late, but after a 60% move from pivot bottom, it would be unreasonable to expect no correction at all this year.  Here’s my contribution to the family pumpkin patch this year:


A few of my favorite reads from the prior week:

TaxVox has an interesting take on how just.3% of the US Population is going to fund HealthCare Reform for the other 99.7%.  In principal, tough to argue with the lack of fairness here.

Weakonomics highlights that while the data may indicate the Recession is Over, the reality is that for many Americans and more to come, it’s still here and getting worse.

Simple Dollar shares sage advice on the Top 10 things he’s learned about money during his blogging career.

Consumerism Commentary questions whether we should throw taxpayer money at GMAC for a third time now – because they asked.  You know how I feel about bailouts.

Oblivious Investor shares how the foreign dividend tax credit works.

Political Calculations shares a funny search term coming from the Whitehouse to their site.  Hint:  It’s a question most of us are still trying to figure out.

Fiscal Geek takes on personal responsibility in personal finances.

Fiscal Fizzle shows how you  can be good at finances even if you’re bad at math.

I also wanted to recognize some of the great work and various Carnival Hosts did recently:
