Friday Stack: Someone told you so Edition

by Rocket Finance


Articles I found interesting last week:

Remember when everyone said that there would be consequences for our nation taking on a huge amount of debt and tripling our deficit in one year? Remember when people like Ron Paul said that printing money like toilet paper might not be the best choice? Maybe they were right.

Maybe the Community Reinvestment Act had more to do with our financial crisis than we have been led to believe.

President Obama recently called the long-term US debt load “unsustainable”. He is right, our country needs to start practicing fiscal discipline right away . . . heyyy . . . wait a minute . . . he really said that?

USA Today told us that safety could suffer if we boost mileage by making cars smaller. No, really?

I call it the “green industrial complex”, but the Wall Street Journal calls it the “climate industrial complex”. I was first!

The worst-polluting nation in the world is telling the US to cut our emissions by 40% right away! They are also telling us that we are carrying too much debt. The next thing  you know, they will be lecturing us on human rights . . . We must be in bad shape if Communists feel the need to tell us to clean up our act.

Numbers from the personal finance blogosphere:

10 bad driving habits you should pick up now that gas is cheap again comes from Punny Money.

41 bloggers shared their best personal finance advice at Squawkfox – and yours truly is near the top of the list!

1001 money saving tips and ideas was posted at Moolanomy. Yours truly also makes this list a couple of times.

10,001 Ways to Live Large is a book review that ups the ante from the Digerati Life. Just think if you only saved $1 with each one . . .

Have a great week!

    There is a possibility that the Chinese are very smart and may rule the world soon. Look at how they are building all of these big buildings. The US will struggle to compete with China if things don’t change soon. Hopefully, the US economy will get better in the not-too-distant future.
