Carnival of the Capitalists

Welcome to the Carnival of the Capitalists. I hosted the COTC back in December 2003 and a lot has changed in the world of blogging. There are so many more people writing great stuff on business and economics.

My weekly reading of the COTC had waned in recent months, but after reading through all of the entries submitted this week, I am all charged up again about the great stuff people have submitted. To show my support for the COTC, I will start including a link to the traveling COTC in my BizLinkBlog (RSS). This will give you an easy way to keep track of where it is each week.

My format this week will be in the form of a FAQ. I took the entries and created questions. The questions will direct you to the associated entries. My thought behind this is that everyone is always struggling with problems and opportunities in their own work and business. These linked entries are clearly not the definitive answers to the question, but they may give you another viewpoint you hadn’t considered.
