LinkStuff – More Money For Beer Edition

by Mike Holman

I did abook giveaway earlier this week for the awesome More Money for Beer & Textbooks bookand the two winners were Judy and Siu (who also won the funniest comment award).

If you know someone who is in post-secondary education or about to enter – please buy the book for them. It’s really good.

On with the links

Mike Piper answers the question – What happens to bond funds when rates go up? Hint – It’s not as bad as you might think.

Harry Sit says that non-profit companies are not always better to use than for-profit companies. Some good points.

Tom Drake has a beginner’s guide on how to buy stocks. It includes what to look for in a stock and discount brokerages you could use.

Robb from Boomer & Echo says that a high debt-to-income ratio is misleadingand not to worry about it so much. Of course, as always it depends on your situation.

Michael James wrote about how RRSPs and RRIFs are mis-handled for low-income seniors.

I like this article about a 20-something person who isn’t disappointed they aren’t living the dream and is working their butt off to improve their lives as best they can.

This drives me nuts – EI for seasonal workers is a bad idea. We are paying people to not work for part of the year. Dumb!
