  • The Nasdaq Composite gained 25.77 points, 1.80% to finish the week at 1457.27

I came across your this finance blog today, while searching for more information on American Capitalism. I've added you to my RSS reader and look forward to future posts.

I also run a personal finance related site at, where I list all the of the current top bank deals and rates. Was just wondering if you'd be interested in a link exchange between our blogs? I think both of our blogs could benefit each others' readers. You can contact me at thepiggybanker [at] gmail.
