Welcome to the Carnival of Money Stories, the End of Year and Pseudo Boxing Day Edition.
Boxing Day was actually on Saturday, but most of us get the Monday off from our work, thus I view today as Pseudo-Boxing Day.
Hopefully to counteract the orgy of post-Christmas shopping, I present a cavalcade of articles about Money (some think the root of all evil, but still something most of us think about every day of our lives) grouped by the Great Boxers of our time (yes I know Boxing Day has nothing to do with pugilism, but what do you want during my Christmas vacation?).
