Best Personal Finance Writing – Week 18

Today I head to “beautiful” Alton, IL for a wedding. I already know that everyone’s mind is on the Kentucky Derby, and luckily there is an Off Track Betting parlor near the church so the guests can get their gambling fix.

I’m still trying to get back in the groove of things after last week’s bachelor party weekend. I managed to spend about $600, including a new car battery to guarantee that I wouldn’t be stranded in the fine city of Louisville.

In addition to the Best Of articles below, I want to call attention to a series of articles posted at Don’t Quit Your Day Job, in response to Rob Bennett’s guest post here – The Buy and Hold Myth. If you enjoyed the article and brouhaha in the comments, make sure you check out PK’s take. I try to bring you interesting and thought provoking articles, and though some of the reactions to Rob’s piece were incendiary, he did a good job of trying to keep the debate on topic.

Thanks everyone for reading and have a great weekend!




As usual my work was featured around the web. Make sure you check out these great host sites:

    • Thanks Roshawn – yeah, it was a nice time. The reception was in a really beautiful area of our state. Good to see you!

  1. Great roundup, and I’m honoured to be included. Cars will be a lot easier on society in a couple decades from now. I’m sure that the elderly who no longer have to depend on others to drive them will definitely not see the car as a destroyer of society.

    • No prob FG – I think you hit on a really neat concept, one that isn’t out of the bounds of reality, especially given the infrastructure of America and Canada.
