PRAISE FOR Financially Stupid People Are Everywhere

"This book is a blast of cold air that will peel layers of somnambulism from the American consumer psyche. Deftly skewering both right and left political extremists, Kelly provides example after example of why it is high time to stop thinking exploitation of the common consumer (aka, financially stupid people) by 'banksters' and the power elite can ever be brought under control. Instead, he explains how and why our best and only hope is to make sure we're not counted among them."
RICK MICHALEK, Principal, RJM Consulting; former Senior Credit Officer, Moody's Investors Service

"Jason Kelly helps you see the financial traps and offers solutions to avoid becoming one of the financially challenged of America. This neat little book will help you live debt-free simply by learning three rules to avoid the traps in today's environment."
CLIFF GIRARD, CEO, Acorn Ventures, Inc.

"My work requires reading a large number of business and financial sources. Jason Kelly teaches me more about the world of business, finance, and markets than any ten other sources combined. Jason is that good. He is an incredible teacher and a gifted writer. This latest book is vintage Kelly."
PAUL BENTON WEEKS, attorney; investment banker; CIO, Templeton Family Funds

"Jason's book provides the reader with glasses to see the financial, political, and business worlds that conspire to take money out of the pockets of every average Joe. His basic approach to personal financial management should be required reading for every high school student entering the working world for the first time."
PAUL TARDIF, Vice President, Waters Corporation

    FANTASTIC !

    This is one of the most honest and accurate books I've read in a long time. I was most impressed by the author's knowledge of economics and basic finance. As an English Major, Jason Kelly has a gift to be able to convey important principles in a delightfully entertaining and often humorous manner. If you want to understand how we got in this mess as a Nation - read this book - he knows where the bodies are buried so to speak. He also blames both major political parties and does not try to advance a partisan agenda either way - he just explains how the System really works - and then allows you to make up your own mind.
    This book should be MANDATORY reading by all Americans. PERIOD.
    Don't walk - run to the Bookstore - or download the e-book NOW !!!
    You won't be sorry.
