Victory Lap Retirement

Here are some short takes and some weekend reading:

Canadian Couch Potato uses his latest podcast to answer questions about the role of bonds in today’s portfolios.

The Blunt Bean Counter reports from the tax-hell trenches about financial institutions sending incorrect capital gains reports to their clients.

Big Cajun Man reports on an unfortunate side-effect of the Federal Civil Service’s inability to pay its own workers properly. Workers are afraid to make any changes to their pay which means they’re avoiding automated charity donations.
