A Financial Revolution 

April 10, 2006
Carnival of Investing #17
Welcome to the 17th Carnival of Investing, direct from China. The Carnival presents an opportunity for bloggers to share their best recent posts on investing. If you’re interested in contributing a post to the next carnival, you can use the form at Blog Carnival or Conservative Cat.

Let me also welcome you to A Financial Revolution. The posts on this site discuss saving, investing, and spending wisely. Please check out the posts on Dividend Reinvestment Plans (DRIPs), going private transactions, and royalty trusts.

Due to limited Internet access in China, I was not able to read all the posts, so I have provided the description from the submitter. Next week's carnival will be hosted by Blueprint for Financial Prosperity. And now, on to the posts…
