Carnival of Personal Finance – Week 20 is up!

Monday, October 31st, 2005

This week’s Carnival of Personal Finance is hosted by WealthyWeb. I contributed my first post since Rita. It feels good to get back into the swing of things.

The Great Retirement Ripoff – Part II

Monday, October 31st, 2005

I picked up the October 31, 2005 issue of Time with “The Great Retirement Ripoff” cover. The article was terrible. It was so one-sided that it should have been titled as an editorial.

There’s a lot of deductions available. The problem is that they take planning and organization ahead of time to […]
