Another installment of the best financial tweets of the week. I continue to try to figure out whether I need to cut down the number of folks I follow or find a smarter way to get to the important tweets of the week.
Given this was a week with the Bank of Canada cutting interest rates, oil price shenanigans and King Abdullah’s passing the twitter verse did have a lot of interesting stuff.
The Media Maven of Money (Preet B.) started flexing his financial chops with a very interesting set of simulations to try to answer the time-honored question, is it better to buy your house, or rent and invest your money?
Based on feedback, results now presented more cleanly in Buy vs Rent calculator. The win rate over 1000 simulations. pic.twitter.com/vdVSoFzZ97

A bit of shameless self-promotion to end things off, I am on another list of bloggers you should read (along with some other interesting folk).
