Weekly roundup of blogs

For the past week or so in the Canadian financial blogosphere, we’ve had news of another blogger publishing a book, plenty of reviews of investment books, a couple assessments of iTrades US-friendly RRSP, an alert on a new risk in owning US property, and various debunkings including those of dividend investing and BMOs new annuity-like product (called Lifetime Cash Flow Product). I learned a few new things and encountered some thought-provoking perspectives; maybe you will too!
