Bubbles, Bankers & Bailouts

The Global Financial Crisis and How You Can Survive It

An affordable guide to keeping your job, protecting your interests and not panicking in 2009.


It arrived like an unpredicted midnight storm – one day political leaders were praising Canada’s strong economy, and the next day they declared the country – indeed the entire world – had slipped into a deep recession.

How could such financial devastation occur so widely and rapidly? Who were these entities named Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and why should their actions affect us in Canada? What caused a massive insurance company to declare losses of hundreds of billions of dollars? Where will it end – at your workplace, your doorstep, or your savings account and RRSP?

Bubbles, Bankers & Bailouts addresses these concerns in a direct, informative and often wry manner. Employing an entertaining narrative followed by a comprehensive Q&A format, John Lawrence Reynolds cuts through business jargon and over-hyped commentary to deal with serious issues such as:

How safe is my job?
Where will it end?
What can I do to protect my financial situation?
Why is this changing international finance forever?
Will it affect Canada less than other countries? Or more than them?
