Product Description

Bankrupt’s warning that a citizenry, its commerce, and its government cannot endlessly kick growing, irrational financial obligations up the road is even more compelling now than when it was first published in 1992. The narrative traces—both frighteningly and entertainingly—America’s modern-era love affair with unrealistic debt back to the 1950s when families made hefty down payments on big-ticket items and held mortgage-burning parties, something younger generations have never heard of. Not coincidentally, the author at that time began a long career that has reached across every arena and phase of financial obligation—consumer, commercial, corporate, institutional, and the final reckoning of bankruptcy. Jim McTevia the business consultant is a numbers guy, but what drives this book is McTevia’s eye (and solid advice) for the human element, the tragedy that often accompanies financial dire straits. The author’s unique vantage point on both the ledger and the psychology of debt yields a timeless classic read. With a foreword by M. Scott Peck, M.D., author of The Road Less Traveled.
