When the first edition of Financial Reckoning Day was published more than six years ago, many critics felt that maverick financial writers Addison Wiggin and William Bonner were overly critical of the United States' increasing debt and the start of what seemed to be the foreshadowing of economic concerns. Fast-forward to 2009, and much of what the authors predicted has come true-high unemployment rates, record-setting foreclosures and bankruptcies, and the nearly global collapse of the financial institutions once thought to be so secure. With this updated edition, Financial Reckoning Day Fallout, Wiggin and Bonner bring you even more down-to-earth wisdom. This timely guide reveals that the hazards of democratic consumer capitalism and the financial follies of history are not a thing of the past but an ongoing issue with no end in sight. With this book, you'll gain a better perspective of what's really going on and discover the steps you need to take to survive the difficult times ahead. Honest and accurate, Financial Reckoning Day Fallout offers you the best chance to protect your assets and grow your portfolio in these difficult financial times.

"When the first edition of this book was published early in the twenty-first century, many felt that the authors' concerns about the nation's mounting debt and the potential for financial catastrophe were exaggerated. Now, with this updated second edition, those folks are singing are different tune. Mel Foster's narration is enhanced by his deft use of vocal inflections, which vary the pace of his otherwise standard delivery of business-related content. Foster emphasizes the ironic undertone of the many stories of financial destruction that could have been avoided by more prudent behavior, further lending credence to the indignation many Americans now feel toward the financial industry. But some listeners may be distracted by Foster's nasal timbre and his attempts at various accents as he takes on the personas of Germans, Russians, and Americans from the Midwest and Southern regions.
