Blog Carnivals Cinco!

Can I Get Rich On A Salary participated in five personal-finance blog carnivals this past week.

[Editor’s Note: In case you are not familiar with blog carnivals, a blog carnival is a multi-blog event in which a number of bloggers aggregate their articles within a certain theme or subject area into one post. The “host” of the carnival writes up the post on his or her blog and includes links to the various articles. Hopefully, this helps readers as they get a “one stop shop” of articles. I post a weekly recap of the blog carnivals in which I have participated—and try also to cull out a few articles that I’d like to share with you here.]

Carnival of Personal Finance:

Greener Pastures hosted Carnival of Personal Finance, #159: The First Zero-Emissions City, unveiling facts and pics of the plans for the first zero-emissions city, near Abu Dhabi, on June 30. Here were some of the posts I wanted to highlight:

It was accompanied by the comment, “Yes, some people are dumb and some people are over-compensated, but let’s not put the government in charge of determining who is smart and who is wealthy, okay?” Um… okay. Not sure what that was about! My post doesn’t talk about the government, let alone about determining who is smart and who is wealthy… In any event, visit the Fiesta for more!
