Unexpectedly Intriguing!
19 May 2006

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Two brand-spanking-new Carnivals join this week's edition of Political Calculations' On the Moneyed Midways (OMM for short!) As luck would have it, both new carnivals focus on careers, suggesting that Rob May's observation that the proliferation of "second-movers" will lead to fewer and fewer readers for each individual carnival, as the market fractures into smaller and smaller pieces, is dead-on.

Then again, that kind of proliferation is why OMM is slowly gaining readers, since someone needs to sort the wheat from the chaff. That, and where else can you easily keep track of everything going on in the sphere of money-related blog carnivals?

But enough justifying OMM's existence - you're here to catch up with the best business, investing, debt-reduction, frugal-living, personal finance and now career-related posts from the week's money-related blog carnivals! Here they are in all their glory, including The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM)

Update: All links now working!
