This week in investing and personal finance

by Natalie MacLellan on October 23, 2010

in Week in review

We may be a day late with this, but we have not forgotten. In fact, there are a lot of great articles we’re excited to share with you this week.

First, Alan Schram at Canadian Finance Blog explores the idea of a Financial Fast. I thought this was great, and want to try it, perhaps as a 2011 new year’s resolution.

Miranda at Financial Highway asks Are You Ruining Your Retirement? Read for warnings on how you might be sabotaging your retirement plans.

Mike Holman, at Money Smarts writes In Defense Of Mutual Fund DSC Fees For Smaller Investors. It’s an interesting article, as it is not often that you hear someone defend fees!

Neal Frankle, in a guest post at Frugal Dad describes How To Raise Money-Smart Kids.

Patricia at Let’s Talk About Investing warns you to beware of hedge funds, and discusses the risks involved.

Gail Vaz-Oxlade continues her look at the 7 deadly sins, this week taking on Wrath.

And finally, introducing the new Get Smarter About Money blog, read the fun post/quiz  Talk of the Titans and see how well you know Gordon Gekko and Warren Buffett.

Thanks for the mention! It’s a great idea to try out, I think I’ve been pretty much doing it for a few years now… but I just thought I was being cheap ;)

Thanks for the “Financial Fast” and “Are You Ruining Your Retirement?” links. Bookmarking these to read tonight. I really need to make some spending changes ASAP to bring down my debt. Have pledged to cut out travelling (sob) and cut way back on personal spending until I’ve made a sufficient dent. And I was late to the retirement planning party. So I have a lot of catching up to do there too.

Lots of good advice here.
