The Wealth Builder Carnival #93

Welcome to the ninety-third 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.


John Schmoll presents How to Take the Emotion Out of Investing posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "This post is about removing emotions from your investing. It highlights doing your own research and setting a plan to help with your investments."

Michael presents Financial Planners and the Fiduciary Standard posted at FinancialRamblings.com, saying, "This post takes a closer look at the extent to which CFPs look out for the interests of their clients as well as the extent to which the CFP board cares."

anisha@nerdwallet.com presents I’ve heard the gift tax exemption is going to end soon—does that mean I should change my will? posted at NerdWallet, saying, "This article covers the rumors that the gift tax exemption will expire, and how you should adjust your finances accordingly."

John K presents Why are Small Businesses Still Paying for the War of 1812? posted at Wallet Blog, saying, "Earning is an important factor in obtaining money to invest - When 75% of business in the US economy are Small Businesses, you would think that ridiculous tax burdens wouldn't be imposed by local municipalities. But that just isn't so. Take a look at one of the factors that drives out small business and hinders job creation."

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
