Friday Finance Links March 22, 2013 – Go Marquette Edition


March Madness is underway and my grad school alma matter Marquette pulled out an exciting opening round win over a tough number 14 seed, Davidson.  Butler is up next tomorrow, should be a great game.  I grew up rooting for Marquette as a kid in Milwaukee during the Al McGuire era.  They won it all in his last game as a coach in 1977 and were National runners-up in 1974.

Here are a few links to some great weekend financial reading.
