NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Writing this blog is as much for me as it is for anyone else. Every once in a while, a reader takes some time out of his or her day to write me a note to make a suggestion on how to improve it. 

I can never say thanks enough when a person does that.

Feedback is a gift.

Now, on to this week's reading pile. 

  • Whoops. Last week, I included the wrong link for this article. Why Ford Hired a Furniture Maker as CEO. (The Atlantic)
  • A record number of Americans are 90-days late on their car payment.  But...fewer than 1 percent of auto loans issued by credit unions are 90 days or more late, compared with 6.5 percent of loans issued by auto finance companies. (Washington Post)
  • Lonely seniors. Poor students. Home-share programs create an elegant solution. (I wonder how many other social problems could have similar solutions?) (Curbed)
  • The trap of early feedback. (Godin)
  • The subtle threat of high-quality distractions. (Medium)
  • Nothing stays the same. Molson Coors hit by a decline in American beer drinking. (WSJ) (Subscription needed)
  • California governor wants residents to profit from online data. (AP)
  • There are many more jobs out there than there are unemployed people. (Calculated Risk)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
