Overview

Uyless Black’s book lays-out the financial, political, as well as social underpinnings of America’s most serious recession since the Great Depression: the 2008 financial meltdown. It is a unique examination of the human foibles that initiated this financial and social failure. His book is the first of its kind. It was written by a business owner.

This well-documented book is exceptional in that it is written so that a non-financial person can understand the "financial weapons of mass destruction." It is a balanced analysis of the topic as it examines both sides of America's political aisle. In addition, the book is not a droll academic treatise. Mr. Black says in the preface, "Levity might help the pill of failure go down easier."

Meet the Author

Uyless Black’s diverse background as a software programmer, a Federal Reserve officer, a military man, and a business owner has given him a unique perspective and vantage point on the subjects of the book. He was a Senior Vice President for Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, an Assistant Director and the Ombudsman for the Federal Reserve Board. He designed and wrote code for the first automated system that simulated the U.S. money supply that was used by the Federal Open Market Committee to regulate the money supply of the nation. He was the founder of three data communications network consulting firms, became an international lecturer, and wrote thirty-five books on the emerging Internet technology with several published in other languages.
In 2002 Mr. Black left the world of computer networks and has since written several more books and hundreds of articles on subjects ranging from politics and warfare to satire on public figures. For the past decade, he has devoted himself to investigating and reporting on the social, political, and financial climate of America.
