Recently I get a ton of emails on an article called. 8 Personal Finance Lessons from Benjamin Franklin that was published on the very cool blog, The Art of Manliness.

Several dozen of you told me that this article sounded like 8 things I say often on TSP.

So rather than read the article at all I decided to do the show based just on the 8 tenets of Franklin and see how much in sync we really are or are not.  One thing for sure old Ben’s advice seems quite timeless to me.
