Interesting reads 18th October 2009

By far, the most interesting thing I read last week was: Wall Streets’ Near Death Experience, which is an excerpt from an upcoming book — Too Big To Fail by Andrew Ross Sorkin. It is an account of the days following Lehman’s collapse and was a very absorbing piece.

The other thing I’d like to highlight from last week — is the baby week going on at the Canadian Finance Blog, which was rounded up with a post highlighting other great posts from the blogosphere on baby and child raising.

Here are the other articles I enjoyed this week, and also the carnivals One Mint participated in.
