Unexpectedly Intriguing!
November 5, 2010

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to this Friday, November 5, 2010 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, in which we've presented the best posts we found hidden among the best of the past week's money and business-related blog carnivals!

After last week's "special" edition, we're back on track this week, despite also hosting the 117th edition of the Cavalcade of Risk during this past week.

Which brings up the question of just how many editions have we done of On the Moneyed Midways? As it happens, we had no idea, for the very simple reason that we don't keep track!

So we went through our archives, which you can access through the links provided below this week's edition of OMM, to find out. It turns out that this is edition #242. Or #243. We think. Like we said, we really don't keep track.

And with that, we'll just get right to it then! The best posts we found in the week that was follow immediately below....
