So Uncle Bennie announced Operation Twist, and while doing so happened to twist himself right into the markets, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. The results? Markets down, commodities down, the Canadian dollar down, and the US dollar up.
I only had one post up this week, a great guest post from Rob Bennett: The Biggest Unknown Risk of Stock Investing. In light of recent events, it’s definitely a great read.
Now that The Lion King 3D is playing in theaters, you may also find my Five Personal Finance, Economic and Life Lessons Learned from “The Lion King” to be an interesting read.
