Ever wonder how to talk to your kids about money? This week the Everyday Money blog has some answers for you.

Canadian Finance

With our economy seeing a slight dip lately, it’s hard not to think about the possibility of a Cyprus-style breakdown happening here. This week Mark Carney’s working on preventing that from happening, and CTV News brings you the story.

Mr. Carney was also present at the G20 meetings held this week, where leaders talked largely about monetary stimulus and how they could help control debt. The Toronto Sun has that story.

Talk about busy! Mark Carney was also busy helping the Bank of Canada work on the next rate announcement – his last before he leaves for the Bank of England. Not surprisingly, no action was taken, but Canadian Mortgage Trends looks further into it.

And even more good news! We also found out this week that Canadian inflation is stabilizing at around 1%. The Montreal Gazette has that news.
