The financial news is teeming with fascinating (if often disturbing) information. We’re bringing the top stories of the last month to you here in this post and one or two more to follow.

Why only print a few worthless pieces of paper when you can print so many more for practically nothing and get real goods back…
4) David Rosenberg’s 12 Bullet Points Confirming the Double Dip is Here – This is an excellent zerohedge synopsis of Rosenberg’s proof that the economy is heading south. A great short read to help you get your bearings!
