Short Takes: Taxpayer Rant and Financial Literacy

1. Larry MacDonald makes some good points about government waste in his taxpayer's rant. This reminds me of a quote I once heard: be thankful that you don't get all the government that you pay for.

2. Preet gives a financial literacy test in just 3 questions. If you get any of them wrong, you're at significant risk of having others take advantage of you financially.

3. My Dollar Plan has some good advice about learning the financial impact of everyday purchases by annualizing their costs.

4. Big Cajun Man weighs the pros and cons of a Costco membership.
