The Wealth Builder Carnival #77

Welcome to the seventy-seventh edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic. For reading convenience, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.  Blog Carnival is having technical issues again, which may have reduced the number of submissions for this week.

And now on to the Carnival:



Insuring and Protecting

Ellen Davidson presents Health Care Fraud posted at Small Group Health Insurance, saying, "Currently, the structure for health insurance is provided by the government and managed in the public sector.

We spend more than we can afford, and it’s a vicious cycle. Fortunately, the cycle can be stopped if we can pinpoint and assess the causes for debt and uncalculated spending.
