Unexpectedly Intriguing!
September 23, 2006

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to this week's edition of On the Moneyed Midways, where we link to the best posts from each of the week's blog carnivals related to business and money matters. But wait, that's not all! We also award one post with the title The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM)

This week, we're proud to proclaim Noah Kagan of Okdork.com as our new hero! Hosting this week's Carnival of the Capitalists (link below), Noah had this to say about his Carnival posting philosophy:

I run the carnival of marketing and the biggest problem I found was that so many articles are shit. So in honor of my readers I will present the 5 most interesting and just give links to the other people.

As we review many blog carnivals each week, we find this to be very true. We also find that the Carnival of the Capitalists is lucky to be able to regularly produce 5 quality posts each week - there are a number of other carnivals out there that don't provide any. But, that may be why you're here (we read 'em so you don't have to!) Just scroll down for the best of the week that was....
