Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to this Saturday, June 9, 2007 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, the blogosphere's only review of the best posts from the week's best major business and money-related blog carnivals!

Every week, we scan through hundreds of blog posts contributed to dozens of money and business-related blog carnivals, seeking out the very best posts in each carnival. The best post we find wins the title of being The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM) Post that rank very highly are awarded the title of being Absolutely essential reading!(TM)

For more examples of good writing and the communication of great ideas (as related to business and money matters), and more, the best posts of the week that was await you below....
