This Week's Carnival Of The Capitalists

This week's COTC is up at Working Solo. As usual, there are far too many pieces to comment on them all, so here are a few that I thought were worthy of note (or at least that were in areas I found interesting):
Nickel at FiveCentNickel looks at taking a home office deduction.

Bill at Ask Uncle Bill give us 10 career strategies for getting ahead. A must read for new graduates.

Josh Cohen of Multiple Mentality give us some of the "unintended consequences" from price capping in "About capping gas prices, and capping in general".

Scott Peterson at Red Cloud Research highlights the weaknesses in the international systems used to handle derivatives trades.

Henry at InsureBlog presents a post titled "Playing SOLItaire" where he asks "What if a stranger owned a life insurance policy on you? It's real, but is it dangerous?".

In two mortgage-related posts Dave Porter of Pacesetter Mortgage both asks and answers the question "Do I have to sign form 4506 at my mortgage closing?", and Dan Melson of Searchlight Crusade provides an analysis of the different available real estate loan types.
Once again, there are lots more posts in the carnival - these are just the ones that tripped my trigger. As always, your needs and interests are likely to be different from mine, so look around.
