MOB #111 – Vegas Wrap Up

October 26th, 2009 · podcasts

This week’s episode of Millionaire or Bust was recorded after a missed week. I have to apologize because I take my responsibility to my listeners to get a show out weekly, very seriously. Unfortunately, the trip to Las Vegas for BlogWorld proved too much for me as far as getting this show out on top of everything else I had to do that week. But I’m back in the saddle!

Here are today’s segments and the associated articles and links:

By the Numbers

  1. Dow: Gained 107 points over the past two weeks.
  2. Oil: Up $7.77/barrel from $72.26 to $80.03 in the past two weeks.
  3. Gas: Gained 18.9 cents/gallon over the past two weeks going from $2.482/gallon to $2.671.
  4. Bank Failures:We had 8 bank failures over the past two weeks to bring us all the way up to 106. And here is missing bank failure #98.

This week’s main topic discussed some things Talli and I planned to do to save money while in Las Vegas and how we did against our expectations.

    The 106 bank failures for 2009 are the most failures since 1992. Banks are failing fastest in those states with highest unemployment.

    This website has graphs showing the bank failures by state and bank failures by month.

    You had to pay extra for slow wi-fi? That sucks.

    And Panera Bread rules!
