Editor’s note: Need a fun distraction on a fall Friday afternoon? Paul has just launched the latest edition of his financial literacy site, Making Sen$e. In the latest edition, you can listen to a podcast with Paul and credit expert Adam Levin about how the new credit card rules affect you, read Paul’s answers to students’ questions about the economy, watch a collection of Web-exclusive interviews and slide shows featured here on the Business Desk, and play around with a collection of fascinating calculators that allow you to measure relative worth over time – what your first salary would be worth today, whether Andrew Carnegie was richer than Bill Gates is today, you name it. Have a great weekend.
