Money Roundup: Sequestration Edition

by Michael on Mar 3, 2013

As I’m sure you’re all aware, sequestration (the second half of the fiscal cliff) kicked in on Friday. So between now and October 1st, government agencies will need to need to slash $85B from their budgets.

And we’re still not finished with the drama. Federal governmental operations are currently funded under a continuing resolution that expires on March 27th. If that’s allowed to expire, the government will be forced to shut down. Fun, fun, fun.

And now… Here are some articles that caught my eye this past week:

  • Agonizing over Optimal – Do you freeze like a deer caught in headlights when deciding on investment strategies? The perfect truly is the enemy of the good.
  • Working from Home: Benefit or Distraction? – Flexibility might boost morale and (perhaps) individual productivity. But what about company-wide productivity?
  • Insurance Should Stink – Insurance is one of the few things you buy in hopes that you’ll never use it. But, in many cases, it’s a necessary evil.
  • Economic Collapse 101 – Ever wonder what the (economic) end of world will look like? Not quite the zombie apocalypse, but not good.

That’s it. Hope you’ve been having a great weekend.
