This week will mark the beginning of the new weekly roundup. The Friday Five name was becoming too much of a constraint and there are always more than five good links over the course of a week. So, I am renaming this as simply Friday Finance Findings and there won’t be any need to try and find five links to showcase. So to kick things off we have these great posts from the past week:
