Got a book order the other day so I am now re-reading Early Retirement Extreme by Jacob Fisker and The Moneyless Man by Mark Boyle. Despite completely different books the similarities are striking. Don’t worry I’ll have a review on Mark’s book when I’m done.
Now onto the links:
I’ve always recall how much money I sunk into video games while I was a teenager so I’ve been worried about picking up a gaming system as an adult. Then I came across this story called “Gaming Without Breaking the Bank” from Get Rich Slowly and I feel better about the idea.
I rather liked this post from Zen Habits about creating your dream job.
I already tweeting this link but I had to include it, Reining in the purveyors of debt. Perhaps the issue so much the use of credit but just how much we have out there? I wonder what the banks would do if they had to have $0.50 in deposits for every $1 the borrowed to someone?
There is a good discussion about should we hike the minimum wage over at Walletpop.ca.
Oh, this was fun from the Globe and Mail “Home prices nearing bubble territory, but cool-off expected” Why doesn’t that make me feel better?
