Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the May 4, 2007 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, the blogosphere's weekly review of the best posts from each of the week's best assembled major business and money-related blog carnivals!

Each week, we seek out the best post from the hundreds contributed to the dozens of blog carnivals and proclaim it to be The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM) For those posts that come close to that standard, we declare it to be Absolutely essential reading!(TM)

The pickings were pretty slim this past week, as many carnival hosts were purely on autopilot, providing absolutely no reason to read any post in their blog carnivals. Our short list below represents the best of the best!
