Many books have been written about the 2008 financial crisis, but they miss the biggest story of the meltdown: the battle between giant financial companies to dominate the $11 trillion mortgage market that almost destroyed the global financial system. For more than twenty years, until 2004, Timothy Howard was a senior executive at the best known of those companies, Fannie Mae, and he was in the middle of that fight.In The Franchise, Howard explains how seemingly unrelated developments in banking regulation, housing policy, Wall Street financial innovation, and political lobbying all combined to wreak havoc on the American housing market and the world economy.Timothy Howard was Vice Chairman and Chief Financial Officer of Fannie Mae until 2004. Prior to this, he was senior financial economist at Wells Fargo Bank in San Francisco"-- Provided by publisher.

"Do you know what your retirement account will be worth on the day you plan to tap into it? Do you know what the tax rates will be for the rest of your life? Do you know what day you're going to die? Most people have no clue... and that's the problem with conventional financial planning: It's based on things you can't predict or control. Studies show that because they followed the conventional wisdom, almost half of all Boomers won't have enough money to cover even basic living expenses during their retirement years. Now, the financial gurus whose advice got you into this mess in the first place are telling you to "take more risk," "work 'til you drop," and "plan on spending less in retirement." Hundreds of thousands have instead opted out of a system where the odds are stacked against you. This book reveals a proven step-by-step plan for becoming your own source of financing and growing your wealth safely and predictably every single year-even when the markets are tumbling. For everyone from young professionals paying back student loans and middle managers to those trying to protect their hard-earned wealth and retirees, Bank On Yourself is not a "get-rich-quick" scheme; it's about real wealth and financial security for as long as you live. Imagine finally knowing how much money you'll have next year, in 10, 20 or 30 years-and at every point along the way. "-- Provided by publisher.
