Check Out U. S. News and World Report’s Alpha Consumer Blog

I received an email yesterday from Kimerly Palmer informing me of a new blog she is hosting for U. S. News & World Report called Alpha Consumer. It looks like an interesting blog, similar to what The Consumerist but with a little more focus on personal finance.

According to their “About” section, their blog will take a more investigative approach:

Problems in your financial life? Maybe it’s a misleading marketing campaign, workplace frustrations, or a money meltdown. E-mail us at, and we’ll pick cases to investigate and share with you the best advice we find.

I’m a little disappointed that they don’t allow comments but I’m sure it’s done to avoid spam.

I wish Kimberly and U. S. News lots of success.
