The Emergency Economic Stabilization

on 1/10/2013

I was interested in following how sub prime mortgage crisis would be handled. This is your guide to how the bailout money's to be spent and what that will mean to the individual. Like Muolo's last one, a truly fascinating read, and made all the more poignant because we're in the middle of this mess right now. Extremely well-written, with detailed analysis of all the main points, and easy to understand without being too scholarly. Kudos again to the author!

Product Overview

The book is an analysis of the controversial $700 Billion Bailout bill and explains in easy to understand language for individuals what the bailout bill means. $700 Billion Bailout answers questions such as: * What is the bailout office? * How will the $700 billion be regulated? * What is the impact on homeowners? * Will taxpayers have to pay for losses? Muolo believes that along with the solutions, the impact of the bill will be rather dramatic in several areas: Vacation homes: The many people who overpaid for vacation homes and cannot meet their mortgages are likely to lose these homes. The market for vacation homes will be reduced dramatically. Mortgages: While rates may be lower, there will be more fees imposed on mortgages. Lenders will be far more cautious in lending. The days of "no money down" loans are over. Tax Breaks: With the tax breaks, there will be less tax revenue leading to a huge shortfall to the government over the next few years. He will offer insight into these areas and many others. With Americans anxious to understand what such a large government action will do to their daily life, financial expert Paul Muolo provides vital answers such as how the government will supervise the allocation of the money, the effects on taxes, and how further crisis may be adverted. The book provides understandable analysis of the bill's provisions and offers "to do" or "not to do" steps on how the bailout bill impacts individuals.
