Cutting Cost on Home Insurance – Worth the Risk?
Home insurance is a bet. You hope nothing will happen to your home, but you know it might. If it does, it’ll be expensive. But unlike auto insurance, it’s quite possible you’ll never need it. So the temptation is to spend as little as possible.

Ratings Agencies Amok, The Rolling Stone Uncovers a Few Scorpions…
You gotta love Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi. He’s got the quotes and the documents and all the dirt therein. Moody’s, Standard & Poors and others were supposed to be managing risk, but they saw the rewards in ramping risk instead.
The world economy rocketed up the ramp and launched into the atmosphere of massive profits, until economic gravity-well intervened, as it must.
This is a must-read about one of the biggest factors in the criminal enterprises of Wall Street. I give you The Last Mystery of the Financial Crisis over at Rolling Stone.
