Hard Truth Week in Review – No More Jerks Edition
This past two weeks has been all about high profile jerks in our culture. I’m tired of them as you know doubt are.
I’m also begging the media to stop putting microphones in front of Jimmy Carter. I hope he’s so old he doesn’t know what he is saying but either way, we need to stop listening. We have real money problems in this country, starting with our so-called friends in Washington. I lived and worked through the Carter presidency. Take my word for it: He was and is 100% incompetent in matters of economic policy.
Time to share a few things I read recently that you might find interesting:
Penny Jobs takes on Michael Moore and other anti-capitalists in our society with an explanation of why the rich get richer.
Kyle at Amateur Asset Allocator has a nice back to basics summary of how to invest in a low return environment.
Dan Zerbe at Forbes digs deep into the Baucus health care bill and finds – surprise – new taxes disguised as fees.
Looking at the deficit side of the Baucus bill, the Baseline Scenario blog exposes some voodoo cost savings.
PT Money muses on an issue that bothers Mr. ToughMoneyLove regularly: the high cost of TV watching. Something has to give.
Finally, check out this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance.
Enjoy the weekend.
