This week in investing and personal finance

by Natalie MacLellan on December 10, 2010

in Week in review

This has not been a fun week at Before You Invest. We have had website troubles that are still undiagnosed, but also seem to have gone away all on their own. The good news is I could log in today, in time for the weekly round up.

First, a guest post at the Canadian Finance Blog warns us to stay away from the herd – which may help to protect us from Ponzi and other schemes.

2 cents at Balance Junkie provided advice from one of their readers, with Investment wisdom: 5 key lessons.

A guest post at Financial Highway offers a pick-me-up with 20 of the most inspiring quotes on investing.

Mike Holman at Money Smarts Blog asks Why Are Investors Only Using GICs and High Interest Savings Accounts In Their TFSAs? – and provides a great answer. (What investments do you hold in your TFSA?)

Gail Vaz-Oxlade ponders whether Canadians are dumber than we look, given the still climbing debt loads in this country.

Jonathan Chevreau at the Wealthy Boomer explains why returns of 10% are all but impossible these days.

Finally, a heartwarming post from a non-financial blog, but with a frugal aspect. This is from one of my favourite Halifax shops: Love, Me boutique, who promote Handmade for the Holidays.
