Best Weekly Links in Money and Investing: Swine Flu Redux Edition

by Darwin on August 1, 2009

Another week of great reads.  These are entries from blogs I frequent, and I hope you will too (just come back!).  I’ve also included various finance/investing carnivals that published my material this week as well as my posts within my network since the last weekly links.

This week’s edition is dedicated to the resurgence of Swine Flu Mania.  Predictions of 100,000 new cases per day, wildly varying mortality estimates and possible vaccine shortages = volatility in the Swine Flu Stocks.  I make no predictions because we just won’t know what’s going to happen until the story unfolds in the coming months.
