The Trillion Dollar Meltdown:

Easy Money, High Rollers, and the Great Credit Crash

BY Charles R. Morris

Publisher: PublicAffairs; 1St Edition edition (March 4, 2008)

From Publishers Weekly

Financial writer Morris explains the current sub-prime mortgage crisis that is affecting countless numbers of families in the United States and the economy as a whole. Morris details, in great length and description, where the market went wrong and the economic downfall that is soon to be ravaging the country and the global market. Nick Summers does his very best to make all of this sound as interesting as he can, but the material is overly depressing and incredibly monotonous. Summers spices things up a bit by offering a slight shift in tone and intention when reading quotes by the big business honchos responsible for the downfall, summoning a cutting sarcasm to portray them in a more comical and often realistic light. All in all, listeners will be hard-pressed to stay the course.


¡°New York Times Notable Book of the Year¡±

"[The Trillion Dollar Meltdown] is an absolutely excellent narrative of the horror that we have in the credit markets right now.... It's a wonderful explanation of how it happened and why it's so rotten, and why it will take a long time to unwind."¡ªPaul Steiger, former Mng Editor, Wall Street Journal

"However up to date it may seem, this book is no rush job. Morris deftly joins the dots between the Keynesian liberalism of the 1960s, the crippling stagflation of the 1970s and the free-market experimentation of the 1980s and 1990s, before entering the world of ultra-cheap money and financial innovation gone mad... [Morris's] provocative book is...a well-aimed opening shot in a debate that will only grow louder in coming months."¡ªEconomist, March 6, 2008

"Will provide some important background that will help decipher the meaning behind today's gloomy financial headlines. For those who wonder "Why?", here's a place to get some answers!"¡ªWatsonville (CA) Register-Pajaronian, March 13, 2008

"Charles Morris, author of The Trillion Dollar Meltdown, isn't one for sugarcoating. His analysis is dour and grim, but certainly not dull. And when read against a backdrop of an ever-weaker economy, increasingly anxious economists and a stream of gloomy predictions, it can be downright scary....Morris serves up a sharp, thought-provoking historical wrap-up of the U.S. economy and its markets, along with clear scrutiny of today's economic woes."¡ªUSA Today, March 31, 2008

"[A] shrewd primer... [Morris] writes with tight clarity and blistering pace."¡ªJames Pressley, Bloomberg News

"Morris offers a persuasive diagnosis of the long-building credit crash.... An especially graceful writer, Mr. Morris accessibly explains Wall Street's arcane instruments.... This is a smart layperson's guide."¡ªThe New York Times, April 6, 2008

¡°In his brief but brilliant book, Morris describes how we got into the mess we are in¡­. Few writers are as good as Morris at making financial arcana understandable and even fascinating.¡±¡ªNew York Times Book Review, April 20, 2008

¡°The Trillion Dollar Meltdown' by Charles R. Morris and Bad Money' by Kevin Phillips avoid the wild predictions of mass economic destruction, instead giving thoughtful, if alarming, histories and analyses of how we got into the mess we're in today.¡±¡ªBloomberg News

¡°My favorite single book account [of the subprime crisis].¡±¡ªBusiness & Economics Correspondent Adam Davidson, Planet Money podcast, September 16, 2008

¡°[A] masterful and sobering book.¡±¡ªCommonweal, September 12, 2008

¡°¡­a primer.¡±¡ªJim Pressley,, #1 book on the financial meltdown, September 19, 2008

¡°Charles R. Morris¡¯s THE TRILLION DOLLAR MELTDOWN (PublicAffairs) was handed to the publisher last Thanksgiving, a fact that gives Morris, a former banker, rock-solid status as a predictor of the crash. He homes in on the complexity and the paradoxical unpredictability of these financial instruments, which were supposed to manage risk and ended up magnifying it...¡±¡ªThe New Yorker

¡°If you don't know a lot about this current financial crisis, this is a great way to get some of the major contributors, including the role of mortgage-based securities, very quickly and simply. It's a short book; it's a well-argued book.¡±¡ªLAURA TYSON, S. K. and Angela Chan Professor of Global Management, Haas School of Business -- University of California, Berkeley
