September 26, 2008

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the Friday, September 26, 2008 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, the only place you'll find the best posts drawn from the best contributions made by money and business bloggers to money and business related blog carnivals!

Bad behavior defines this edition of OMM! Things like paying for college by turning to prostitution and auctioning off your virginity. Or how about making money by day trading the most distressed stocks in the current credit crisis. And then, there's that matter of trading sex for fish (and AIDS) in Kenya.

To be fair, there are a number of highly redeeming posts in this week's edition as well. All the best posts from the week that was await you below....
