DQYDJ submitted to a carnival this week! That said, let’s get you our customary links.
- We had an editor’s pick at the 327th edition of the Carnival of Personal Finance for our article “Athletes are Underpaid…“. It is hosted at Mrs. Nespy’s World. Go visit!
- “Money Fail: Broke on Thursday” – loving the concept (and the avoidance) of the “Money Fail!”. We’re glad Bret is bringing this idea back as a series.
- Ironman at Political Calculations has been on a roll lately, and we can’t pick just one article to link. For a satisfying read, try out the 2010 Household Income Calculator, and its cousin, the 2010 Personal Income Calculator!
- “Cooling Out the Marks in Uncle Sam’s Ponzi Schemes” – Is Social Security a Ponzi scheme? While the funding and payout mechanism is questionable, I tend to doubt that the system is deliberately fleecing us. Actuarially unsound? Definitely. Will I get the benefits I was promised? Almost certainly not. Of course, in at least one aspect, Social Security is more extreme than a Ponzi scheme – it has mandatory participation.
- “The Shame of College Sports” – What is the true mission of the NCAA?
- “3 Ways Older Americans Are Going to Wreck Your Life” – It’s true, while older Americans are alive, there are some things they will do that isn’t in the immediate interest of the Younger Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y (not to mention Generation Z). However, all of those groups will have their chance on top, someday!
