The Wealth Builder Carnival #99 - Election Day Edition

Welcome to the ninety-ninth 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.

And now on to the Carnival.

Arnel Ariate presents Strange and Beautiful posted at Money Soldiers, saying, "In this article I talked about the relatively uncommon Internet phenomenon which is domain renting. Is domain renting a good alternative to earn money? What issues should be addressed in the lease agreement?"


Carlos Sera presents A Transformative Tale posted at Financial Tales, saying, "In this tale, A Transformative Tale, we will learn how to transform one type of asset class return into another. This is called a transformation and thus the name of this tale. We will specifically look at transforming bond returns to stock returns. Please note that I don’t recommend that you try this at home. I would leave this type of transformation to professionals but I write this tale so that you can understand once again the importance of assessing risk by focusing on the maximum draw down."

Today, the company Mr. Wynne founded operates 19 theme, water and zoological parks across North America. You bet! Just this last week on..."

Michael presents The Stock Market Game and the State of Financial Education posted at FinancialRamblings.com, saying, "My son has been playing the stock market game at school. Unfortunately, while it's admirable that schools are trying to teach kids about the stock market, this game (imho) does more harm than good."

Living Frugally

Big Cajun Man presents Why is it Taking So Long (Debt reduction) posted at Canadian Personal Finance Blog, saying, "Debt reduction and weight reduction have a lot in common, but the rate of reduction is where things are a little different."

Here are some tips on how single moms can start saving in small and big ways."


John Schmoll presents How to Save For Retirement, in a Picture posted at How Consumers Can Avoidcom/">Frugal Rules, saying, "Saving for retirement is not something that happens overnight.
