Hello and welcome to the Carnival of the Capitalists. I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving weekend and a smooth black Friday. I want to start off by thanking Jay of Bizosphere for giving me the opportunity to host this great carnival. If this is your first time hearing about the carnival you can read the details from their main site and submit to their next edition, if you have an awesome article you would like to share, using this blog carnival form.

I had a great time reading through all the entries, 21 articles made it to this edition. Following the guidelines of the carnival theme, as long as the article was not older than 3 weeks and it was quality work it was included here in this edition. Okay, without further delay I present you the Carnival of the Capitalists.
