After the Crash: How to Guard Your Money in These Turbulent Times
The news has been catastrophic: a tanking stock market, pension funds gone, home values in precipitous decline. Choked-up credit markets have made bank loans and mortgages more expensive. A recession is costing jobs and sideswiping family finances. The problems are all too clear, but solutions have proven elusive. In this timely book, Garth Turner, who saw this situation coming and wrote about it, reviews what has happened and why, and offers solid strategies for protecting assets and coming out of the crash intact. Written in the straight-talk style for which the author is noted, After the Crash combines real-life stories with an encouraging, inspiring style to help readers understand a situation that has been made unnecessarily complicated by most mainstream commentators. A handy question-and-answer format covers everything from personal budgeting to big-picture issues like what to expect next.
