The Wealth Builder Carnival #112

Welcome to the one hundred twelfth 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.

Vytas presents Stock market crash posted at Trend, saying, "You most probably know that 1998 saw tremendous rise in Internet stocks, which led to an explosion of a bubble in 2000. 2007 saw an explosion of a housing market bubble. What bubble we are in at the moment? I do not see any. It is just ‘fools hope’ bubble. All financial system is on the verge of a global crash and market participants are buying shares like crazy. On the other hand, we should not be surprised by that as there usually are most investors on the boat just before a collapse comes. Study all major market booms and crashes and you will quickly see that tendency."

Thanks for including my Tax Season ID Theft article. I'm curious why you include my email address instead of my name? :)

You're welcome.

I typically use the name that comes from Blog Carnival in the name field, without any modification. So Blog Carnival must be picking up your e-mail address in the submitter name field.
