Personal Finance: Sharing the Best of the Web!

We are committed to educating you about personal finance with this blog and also the Prosperity Podcast. And today, we are bringing you the best of the web—articles we love from other blogs and publications!

We’re sharing resources on educating your children about money, how to grow your cash in a low-interest environment, and a view on hedge fund manager Bill Ackman’s suggestion for the government to “invest” for Americans.

We trust you will enjoy these resources as much as we did!
