Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the Friday, June 11, 2010 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, where we review and present the best posts from the week's best money and business-related blog carnivals to provide your essential weekend reading material!

This week's top contribution from the Carnival of Debt Reduction wasn't the best post of the week, but it pointed to what we think might be the most potentially rewarding use of 18 minutes and 40 seconds of your time today - it's all about what works for motivating people to achieve greater things:

Now, who's ready to implement the ROWE strategy? Which oddly enough encapsulates our philosophy for why we produce each week's edition of OMM - we do it every Friday (and occasionally Saturday) so it's there where you're ready for it on your own schedule!

After all it's your time. We thank you for passing some of it with us and hope we've provided you something you find valuable.

Speaking of which, the best posts we found in the week that was await you below....
