The credit merchants want YOU in debt - forever Learn how they make us lifelong credit addicts - millions of profitable engines for the massive international debt industry.
′Maxed Out′ is a groundbreaking work that takes direct aim at 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.
With a compulsively readable text, ′Maxed Out′ shows how 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.
