Welcome to the August 2008 edition of the Wealth, Money and Life carnival! Dividends4Life is proud to be your host this month.

There were well over 100 entries for this edition. However, some were not included because 1.) they did not fit the topic, 2.) the page would not load and when there were more than one submission, I selected the one liked best.

There are a lot of good articles here. Everyone is bound to find several that they like. Authors should link back within the next seven days.
