Unexpectedly Intriguing!
June 20, 2008

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the Friday, June 20, 2008 edition of On the Moneyed Midways! Each week, we find the best posts from the best of the past week's business and money-related blog carnivals and link them all in one place for your weekend edutainment!

We're please to welcome a new business-related blog carnival this week: The Carnival of Careers! We've just found it in its third edition and if the quality of the carnival is any indication, we'll be featuring it often in the months ahead.

In news beyond the new addition to our weekly wrap-up of the best of the best, we're also pretty pleased that this was very much an above average week for the business end of the blogosphere.

To see why, just keep scrolling down!...
