Fixing Compensation

A slate.com article with good ideas about fixing executive compensation. For too long the men and women who serve at the top of American corporation have had too many ethical conflicts of interest, which has lead to some of the current financial mess. This presents a good way out of it, without otherwise unduly inserting the government into the process.

Credit Reports

Just a reminder, under law you are entitled to one free credit report from each of the three bureaus each year. Be careful not to go to imposter web sites, only use the one, official site, which is linked off the page I’ve linked here from the Federal Trade Commission. Folks should take advantage of that service to make sure the bureaus are reporting everything correctly, for better or for worse. These things can make or break your access to credit for all sorts of reasons, so ensure your information is correct so you’re only paying for your own mistakes (if any) and not because of erroneous information.
