  1. Best Online Free Finance Manager:  Mint, Check it out.  They just came out of beta.
  2. Why This Bailout Is As Bad As The Last One: Government ownership means that political forces will determine who wins and who loses in the banking sector. The government, for example, will push banks to aid borrowers with poor credit histories, to subsidize politically connected industries, and to lend in the districts of powerful members of Congress. All of this is horrible for economic efficiency.

    1. Why Government Is SO Bad With Money:  (Must Read) Everyone complains about what poor stewards of the people’s money the government tends to be, but rarely does anyone address the question why.  We chalk it up to greed and stupidity, or we just take it as the natural course of things, joke about $200 hammers and move on.  But there are actual, quantifiable reasons that government is bad with money and those reasons are systemic in nature, meaning that no matter who is in charge, or what laws are passed, the root reasons for the waste and fraud will still be with us.
    2. Lehman Brother CEO Gets Punched In The Face:  Ouch…
    3. Paulson’s Scheme: So much for all those predictions that the markets would begin to recover once members of the U. S. House of Representatives summoned the courage to resist the populist outcry and vote for Hank Paulson’s $700-billion rescue plan. Whatever the excitement it generated, and the disappointment its original rejection by Congress caused, the market appears to have arrived at a more considered view of the U. S. Treasury Secretary’s scheme. Sadly, the market’s negative verdict is on the mark.

    1. Floating Fortress: When you have a personal fortune of £11.7billion, you can perhaps be forgiven for feeling the need for protection.  In Roman Abramovich’s case, the solution is to order an armour-plated mega-yacht with missile detection system to offer early warning of attack by pirates or terrorists.
    2. The Best 6 Sites To Get Free eBooks: You might be surprised by how many good free ebook sites there are out there. Nowadays, you can find pretty much any popular (and not) book online. You just need to know where to look. Here are my favorite ebook sites.
