Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This is the second edition of Financial Reckoning Day Fallout, but you probably don't remember the first. When it was published in 2003, investors weren't eager to hear prognostications about vicious cycles of credit and the coming puncture of speculative bubbles. This edition elucidates what happens next and how you can best survive in this ongoing crisis.
From the Publisher
"Mel Foster's narration is enhanced by his deft use of vocal inflections." —-AudioFile

    Very Insightful

    I love how the authors weave what is going on today with history. The more we think we know the more things never change.
