Carnival Midway from The Jerk It's time, once again, for Political Calculations review of the best business and money-related posts of the week that was On the Moneyed Midways! Each week, we plow through a dozen or more blog carnivals, seeking out the posts most worth reading. And, each week, we award one post with the title of being The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM)

Reading as many blog carnivals as we do, we find that there are a handful of writers whose posts are routinely excellent. At some point, we're going to go through all our back issues and put together a special edition highlighting the best writers we've found in our reviews of the multitude of blog carnivals. Something to watch for at the end of the year!
