It’s a new month, so I’m trying out a new headline format for Daily Interest (you know what day it is anyway, right?).
Don’t worry, though: You’re still getting the same look at the news that caught my eye today.
- Last week I said that the Olympic opening ceremony used its $43 million budget on farm animals… and Paul McCartney. If that were the case, those were some expensive farm animals.
- Is college worth it? According to Forbes, it isn’t unless you are “accomplished enough to be accepted by one of the schools ranked near the top of our annual list.” Geez, what’s the opposite of a #HumbleBrag? (Oh right, “bragging.”)
- Bargaineering finished up its 2-part series on the top 10 worst financial products. Montell Williams will not be happy with the outcome.
- We’ve talked about the new college “Shopping Sheet” before, and the reviews from these students are positive. However, student Paul Schwein does point out one issue with this document: “I really don’t think this program does anything to actually lower the costs of higher education.”
- I’m not a coffee drinker, so I’m wondering this: Would you pay $19.99 for a pound of beans with 200% more caffeine than the average dark roast? Let me know in the comments.
