I have gone on a bit of a Joy of Yiddish rant this week. I can assure you that the site will not change to “The Joys of Yiddish Personal Finance“ . That is a catchy name though.
In the Personal financial blog-o-sphere, much less Chutzpah was written. I can assure you that these mavens are most definitely mensches. Oy, what a week it’s been:
- PBS had a very interesting special on Credit Card practices in the States called The Card Game which has caused much discussion on a few sites. Again, these are classic examples of chutzpah in the financial services world.
- Whereas Michael James takes the special and dissects one of the many dirty tricks talked about in the show with Many Bank Fees Should be Considered Interest Charges.
- Gail Vaz-Oxlade also mentions the special in This & That: Kids’ Education Edition, and these are useful hints on RESPs here as well.
- Million Dollar Journey continues the education theme with Talking About Finances with Your Aging Parents … or Grown Kids. Always a touchy topic.
- Preet at WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo asks the intellectual query about whether it would be good Severing the Link Between Price and Weight Part I, take close note of the comments on this one too, some interesting points were brought out.
- Larry MacDonald asks the exciting question Time to Raise interest rates?, and I think maybe it is too late. Bubbles are forming all over the place!
Random Thoughts from 2010
- So many financial questions and more random thoughts, too, to start the year.
- The Rideau skateway opened in 2010, with more financial posts too.
- Got the end of 2009 Inflation perspectives with other stories.
- Chutzpah and financial discussions always go hand in hand.
- I’ve written about financial shock collars before with some Random thoughts.
- Valentine’s Day 2010 was an OK time but I still complained.
- Remember the 2010 Vancouver Olympics? Those were heady days, moneywise as well.
