The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: The Big Unknown Edition

Today, I’m linking to ten articles from personal finance blogs I’ve never had the opportunity to link to before. These are quite good articles from blogs well worth discovering.

What Class Are You? We ride the line between middle class and upper middle class using this definition. I think the key thing here is that if you’re living like the class above you, you’ll eventually drown, continuing his boat analogy. (@ queercents)

Sharpe Minds Love The Sharpe Ratio This is an interesting way to numerically evaluate the cost of risk as a thumbnail sketch. I feel pretty good, as my current investments all seem to have a good ratio using the ratio calculator. (@ a financial revolution)

Is Life Passing Me By? It’s a question I suppose we all have to ask ourselves if we live within our means and watch other people living above theirs. Is life passing me by? I probably would have worried more about this before I had my son; now, we roll around on the floor and make “ribbit” frog noises at each other and I can’t imagine doing anything else. (@ living almost large)

The View Is Lousy From Here An interesting take on car loans that exceed the value of the automobile. A painful situation to be in, for sure. (@ money sense)

Anxious Honey, we’re all anxious to pay off our debts. Other than my upcoming house loan, I never want to take out another debt in my life. Ever. (@ kiss of debt)

Finding A Balance Between Donation Types I think this comes down to personal philosophy; there’s no universal right and wrong here. I usually try to find places to donate that meet my own value structure. (@ 100 by 30 project)

Retirement Planning? Important? Pft. The title certainly got my attention. Thankfully it’s more of a reflection on his past idiocy than on anything current, but I’ve basically had the same response from people who I’ve offered advice to. (@ stop buying crap)
