12 March 2010

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the Friday, March 12, 2010 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, your single stop for catching up with the best of the past week's blog carnivals dedicated to the topics of money, personal finance, and business!

This is a big week in that the biweekly Cavalcade of Risk is celebrating its 100th edition. To join in the celebration, we're featuring the two best posts we found in the Cavalcade in this week's edition of OMM.

But that's not because of the occasion - seeing as we're also featuring two posts from this week's Carnival of Personal Finance. Instead, it's because this week's edition of the Cavalcade of Risk features two of the best posts we've seen contributed to this week's money and business-related blog carnivals. It also doesn't hurt that one of two just happens to be The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!

That post, and the rest of the best posts of the week that was, are ready to help you kick off your essential weekend reading! It all starts below....
