A close friend of mine is getting married this summer. The entire wedding and reception is going to apparently be themed around the 80′s band The Smiths and their lead singer Morrissey. Rumor has it that Morrissey may actually sing at the reception. They plan on having their first dance to the song Come Back To Camden, hence the title of this post. Apparently, a very wealthy relative of theirs is bankrolling the whole thing because he wants them to have a wedding that they will never, ever forget. Wow. Part of me wants to go to make a bootleg recording of the reception. Anyway, on to some personal finance posts.
The Economics Of Daughters When I first read the title, I expected it to be about how expensive it is to have a daughter. Instead, it’s about cultural differences between east and west and how that affects personal finances. An interesting little article. (@ yet another blog about money)
1987 Versus 2007 This post does a very dramatic job of comparing 1987′s stock market to 2007 using an overlay chart. In 1987, we had a very terrible crash. Will it happen again? An aside: in 1987, I was already playing the market: in Topps baseball cards. (@ the big picture)
