Stop Being Poor: And Learn How to Free Yourself from the Banks
- By: Marc Solomon
- Narrated by: Marc Solomon
- Length: 2 hrs and 43 mins
The crisis of 2008 ruined the savings of many Americans, postponing or degrading the quality of their retirement. After this latest betrayal, we are seemingly left with no safe options for growing what money we can save. On the flip side, after trillions of bank bailouts, individuals, small businesses, and professionals have difficulty getting loans. Fiscal education in our schools - and in the media - is poor and mostly wrong. The financial advice of what worked 20 years ago no longer works. Most of us cannot even imagine how to save money and have access to it when we need it. So we don't. We borrow from banks. We gamble our precious savings on Wall Street. We get trapped for years in student loans and credit card payments. We lose money every year from avoidable taxes, interest charges and fees. Our savings and peace of mind suffers. Our future suffers.

Great book. Very comprehensive, and the author reads the material in a way that feels friendly.
