More Money Wednesday Roundup: Tax Credits & Hedge-Fund Flatulence

Personal finance from around the Web:

  • If you are sending a kid to college next year, this is the week financial aid offers should be arriving from colleges and universities. To help cushion the blow of what can sometimes seem a paltry sum, here’s advice on how to negotiate for more aid. [ABC News]
  • Rather than focus on the medical impact of not having health insurance, a new study looks at the financial impact. And guess what? It’s bad. If a member of an uninsured family is struck by illness, the household will lose 22% to 51% of assets within two years. [The Huffington Post]
  • There’s a financial-industry metaphor in here somewhere: A New York hedge fund manager has published a children’s book all about a Mrs. Buttkiss — a woman who has been holding in her, uh, flatulence, for a very, very long time. [City AM]
