Maxed Out : Hard Times, Easy Credit

Author(s): James Scurlock


The Book The Debt Industry Doesn't Want You To Read Scaldingly honest, impeccably researched and movingly written, Maxed Out is, as Fast Food Nation was to the food industry, the book, the captains of the debt industry wish you would never read. Maxed Out is a groundbreaking work that targets the debt industry and how it is fundamentally re-shaping our lives through misleading, unethical, insidious and sometimes illegal practices designed to bury us under ever higher amounts of debt. The book provides a fascinating and shocking look at how today's credit merchants are trying to get virtually everyone into the credit game. Although the poor are especially targeted by the industry in the hopes that they will become lifelong credit addicts, everyone from university students to grandmothers are under assault from debt companies offering easy access to all the material comforts we can imagine, with our dreams just a swipe away from coming true. Maxed Out shows how, you, the average citizen is courted, wooed and tempted every day into buying something on credit, as well as what happens when the day arrives when you can no longer make your minimum monthly payment. First published 2007.
