Here is our first-weekend-in-April roundup of articles on investing, personal finance, and stewardship:

And from the pundits and bloggers...

  • How is the market doing? (Michael Batnick, The Irrelevant Investor). Day-in, day-out updates on market performance don't amount to much.
     
  • The forecasting business shouldn't be this bad (Barry Ritholtz, Bloomberg Opinion). Wall Street and economic forecasters aren't very accurate. They should at least be more humble.
     
  • Fees vs. fines (Morgan Housel, Collaborative Fund). Having to endure market volatility is part of the "price of admission" for an investor.
     
  • The lifespan of life insurance (Johnny Fowler with Mark Mason, Vagabond Finances). In the later seasons of life, your need for life insurance probably isn't as great as it once was.
     
  • Raise your children to be generous (Joe Plemon, SeedTime). When you train your children to be givers, you are molding their hearts.
