First off, I thought today was Tuesday…
Second, I’d like to wish my wife’s cousin, Stacey, a happy 19th birthday. She and her older sister were flower girls our wedding. She wasn’t even 3-years old back then. Wow…time flies.
1. We start off with an interesting story I read about how rich New Yorkers are leaving the area to escape taxes. We can debate forever on whether the rich are paying enough taxes or not but I can tell you that if taxation becomes to burdensome, they’ll pack up and leave.
2. MoneyWatch has the 12 Dumbest 401(k) mistakes to avoid.
3. MightyBargainHunter says that the only thing you can count on in this economy is that you can’t count on anything. Thoroughly confused? Read his post and he’ll explain it.
4. Jonathan has a nice primer on bonds.
5. While we’re on the basics, Jeremy has mutual funds fees for beginners.
6. Ron asks a good question: Is there no such thing as good debt? Maybe there’s not good debt but I do think that some debt is better than other debt.
7. Now for a little controversy: Dave Ramsey gets kickbacks from investment brokers… The article is a little old, but I thought it was worth sharing. (Thanks, Dylan!)
8. Allan Roth with What Wall Street Doesn’t Want You to Know About Retirment Planning, which is a review of a book I’m currently reading.
9. Donna Freedman with 12 Healthy Foods for a $1 or less.
Next week I’ll try to post “Ten for Tuesday” on TUESDAY!
