Show Me the Money Welcomes Carnival of the Capitalists


The goal of Carnival of the Capitalists is to bring together on a weekly basis some of the best postings from blogs around the world on the broad subject of business and capitalism.

Show Me the Money has been selected to host the December 4th Carnival – it’s my first time as host! Sorry to say this blog is not affiliated in any way with William Shatner’s game show of the same name so the only riches you’ll enjoy here will be from the enrichment of your mind! I reviewed over 30 postings and have categorized them for you to review.

I’m also including my first ever submission to a blog carnival, Unique Business Loans for Minorities. Hope you enjoy it as well as the other postings for this week’s carnival.

Would love to hear your feedback on which posts you liked so feel free to leave me a comment.

Enjoy your visit to Show Me the Money and come back to visit again!

Marshall, the teenage dreamer is my first born. Charmaine and I are practicing shopping for a husband for her and will arrange a marriage in a decade or so.

So I take my daughter to work. To market test against the bachelors.

And you are right: like most teenage girls, she is indeed a mystery.

Thanks for your work hosting the carnival.

The blogosphere owes you,

Jack
