Welcome back, Ira!
A few years ago, one of the most intelligent sources of information about personal finance that was available online could be found in Ira Krakow's Persfin Digest. Unlike most email discussion lists, Persfin Digest actually provided useful answers to questions about a wide range of personal finance topics. The list was frequented by many financial professionals and academics, as well as other sensible individuals, so the signal-to-noise ratio was always quite high -- you could count on solid advice whenever you had a question about insurance, estate planning, credit cards, financial web sites, mortgages, getting out of debt, or investing. Unfortunately, Persfin Digest went away after its host, Ira Krakow, decided to pursue some other opportunities.
But now, Persfin is back, in a new incarnation as a Yahoo! Group. In March 2001, Ira resurrected Persfin, and subsequently invited many of its prior members to join the group. You can join, as well, just by registering for free at Yahoo! and selecting Persfin. Once you enroll, you can receive a daily digest or individual messages by email, or you can view messages on the Web site.
Either way, Persfin promises to enrich your financial education -- if not your wallet and portfolio as well!
