Book Spine Poetry: Time to Pay the Piper

It's Time to Pay the Piper

Help! I can't pay my bills
Empire of debt
Past due
Whatever happened to thrift?

Help! I Can’t Pay My Bills: Surviving a Financial Crisis by Sally Herigstad  332.024 H546h
     A CPA lays down the law on how to survive and recover from a financial crisis.

Empire of Debt: The Rise and Fall of an Epic Financial Crisis by William Bonner and Addison Wiggin             336.74 B716e
     The American economy: “You pay in cash. You pay in blood. And you pay with your own soul.” It’s all gloom and doom, at least according to Bonner and Wiggin.

Past Due: The End of Easy Money and the Renewal of the American Economy by Peter Goodman            330.973 G653p
     Goodman recounts how, “for two decades Americans binged on imports and easy credit, a spending spree abetted by ever-increasing home values - and then the bill came due.”   
      Despite the benefits of saving for the future, many Americans simply don't save enough. Shame on us.
