The customary weekly roundup
It’s been another great week for me here at The Personal Financier. I truly enjoyed posting this week and I hope you, as my readers, noticed it.
The week started out with one of my better posts about the need to actively manage our careers. It continued with a very interesting bet by Warren Buffet who is long on the S&P. I found recent statistics reporting American’s saving habits and progress and extracted the most interesting. My last post for the passing week was fun an enlightening, at least for me. Airlines have taken some very creative measures to save on their fuel costs and there are lessons we can all learn.
I’ve read some very interesting articles at the daily papers. I especially recommend reading the following:
- Is it the end of the road for the Hummer? @ The Guardian
- A Primer for Young People Starting Their First Job @ The NY Times
The carnivals this week were at their usual best.
