Many people are both alarmed and confused by what they've heard about the $700 billion bailout. They're worried about their savings, their jobs and their homes. This audio provides an understandable analysis on how the bailout bill impacts you, and offers to do or not to do steps for you to follow. It is a must have for all investors. Best-selling author Paul Muolo has been reporting and writing on the mortgage crisis for some two decades and brings his seasoned and skeptical approach to his work. He has access to the key players in the banking, mortgage and Washington world, often breaking scoops before other journalists.

Here, Muolo offers an unbiased view on how Wall Street got mixed up in the world of mortgages, and unravels what was going on behindthe scenes in the housing and mortgage industry for much of the past decade.

In his analysis of the controversial Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, Muolo explains in easy to understand language what the bailout bill means for individuals and answers such questions as:

  • What does the bill say, exactly?
  • Who is making decisions about how the $700 billion will be spent, and what does it mean now that the government is investing directly in our banks?
  • Who's footing the bill?
  • What is the impact on homeowners, businesses, retirement, and taxes?
  • Where do I put my money in the meantime?

    Muolo shows both the challenges and opportunities of the credit crisis and proposed bailout, including its impact on:

  • Mortgages: While rates may be lower, there will be more fees. Lenders will be more cautious in lending, and people who cannot meet their mortgages are likely to lose these homes. This may create contrarian plays in foreclosures and vacation homes.
  • Stocks and Other Investments: Is now the time to get into the stock market or is it safer to stick with CDs, bonds, and gold? Download and start listening now!

      " Very informative. It is a little out of date. An updated version would be very interesting. I have a hard time following these financial / political discussions or I would rate higher. Since I can't follow them very well, I can't tell how good or accurate they really are. "
