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!
