Cavalcade of Risk #45 ~ Is Love a Risk?

Welcome to I’ve Paid For This Twice Already… and the 45th Cavalcade of Risk! The Cavalcade of Risk is a blog carnival that collects the very best posts from the past two weeks on risk and how it relates to finance. Being the Valentine’s Day edition, I was hoping for a little love risk thrown in, but alas, I have some very serious bloggers on my hands this edition. :)

Editor’s Choice:

  • The Digerati Life: Can Cheaper Goods And Lower Prices Put Us At Risk? A Photo Essay. What is it worth to save some money? Lead paint on toys? Healthcare in a back alley? SVB examines this with a companion series of compelling photos.
  • The Frontal Cortex: Excessive Risk Taking. An interesting (and provocative) take on the risk-friendly environment that led to French financial giant Societe Generale’s recent major meltdown.
