Meltdown Rising

One farsighted observer began to fear a credit crisis way back in 2005 and was able to convince a publisher that they should publish a book about it. Now, The Trillion Dollar Meltdown is at #18 on Amazon and the author, Charles R. Morris is the go-to expert on the subject. As proof of its foresightedness, the book’s original title was The Coming Crash.

It was not reviewed in the pre-pub media. The one library that has it on order, of the ones I searched, shows 6 holds per copy.

It was reviewed yesterday on as a “shrewd primer” to the current credit crisis. The Economist said in its March 6th review:

Morris can’t be dismissed as a crank. A lawyer, former banker and author of 10 other books, he knows a thing or two about the complex instruments that have spread toxic debt throughout the credit system.
