Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the Friday, July 10, 2009 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, where each week, you can catch up with the best posts we found in the past week's business and money-related blog carnivals!

Can you really ever recover from the financial impact of attending college? How exactly does debt settlement work? What can you do to find out if that investement advisor you're considering hiring hasn't already pulled a Bernie Madoff? Did Al Capone really live *that* modestly? And why does Costco put so many high-dollar item goods between the entrance and where the food is?

The answer to these questions, and more, await you below!...
