Today we’ve got another financial news post where we bring you the best & most interesting financial news stories over the last couple of months. On a personal note, I’m pretty upset because I had finished making blog posts out of all the economic update videos that I recently filmed to run over the holidays, but it appears they have completely vanished from the backend of my website. I have no idea why, but I guess I’m going to run a couple financial news posts in a row and will hopefully find time to come back and recreate those posts. That being said, these are good articles that I’ve held onto for a while for your pleasure…
