The Friday Stack: $900 billion and counting!

by Rocket Finance


The Obama stimulus package is getting more and more expensive by the day. Pete, from BibleMoneyMatters points out that support for the measure is dropping quickly. I just hope our legislators listen . . .

The Silicon Valley Blogger asks Do you spend less than you earn or do you earn more than you spend? Do you think they are the same thing? Check out her post and decide.

The M-Network anwers some questions from an investing “newbie” at I’ve Paid For This Twice Already. There are some smart people in that M-Network.

I see reverse mortgages advertised all the time and I always kind of wondered what they were. Pinyo at Moolanomy told me everything I needed to know in What is a reverse mortgage?

This week I turned in my application to get my Master’s in Business Administration. I’m still not sure if I have the time to go to class and do the class work or not . . . but I can get the degree free of charge, so I might as well start taking classes, right? I found Free Money Finance post on How to waste money on an MBA to be instructive as I head back to school.

It is good to be back in the blogger’s chair and I look forward to writing, reading and interacting with the personal finance blogosphere in the coming months.

    I wish you the best of luck on your MBA. Taking the GMAT was one of the most challenging tasks I’ve ever undertaken. I did well in college and made the mistake of thinking that would be enough for a good score. Who knew middle school math could be so hard?

    My first score was awful, but I made up for it the second time around.

    Thanks, I might be able to get in without the GMAT because I have a Math Ed. undergrad, earned over a 3.0 GPA in college and already have an MA . . .

    It has been almost 12 years since I have done Algebra regularly . . .

    thanks for the link! Hopefully we’ll be able to kill the stimulus – at least in its current form.

    Good luck on the MBA!

    Good luck with the MBA! Hopefully you do decide to go for it! The question is, if you do sign up for it, would it affect your blogging schedule? Except you may probably have some interesting material to write about!

    Hopefully it won’t cut into blogging too much. I think that politics is going to give me lots of fodder over the next few years, I think.

    An MBA might help me to actually know what I am talking about when I write . . . 🙂
