March 30, 2007

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the March 30, 2007 edition of On the Moneyed Midways (OMM for short), the blogosphere's only weekly review of the best business and money-related posts from each of the week's major blog carnivals! Each week, we seek out the best posts from among the hundreds posted to the various blog carnivals posted each week and we select one post as being The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM) As an added bonus, we also cite the near contenders for the best post of the week as being Absolutely essential reading!(TM)

Since we hosted the most recent edition of the Carnival of the Capitalists, you won't find any of its posts included below, so in case you missed it, click here and visit as it was a joint edition of OMM! And if you're considering hosting a blog carnival, be sure to see our report on whether or not hosting a blog carnival is worth the trouble.

But enough about what we did last week! The best posts of the week that was, from the best-hosted carnivals of the past week that was (aside from the CotC, that is!), awaits below....
