I wanted to point out other items in Debt Cures that Kevin Trudeau frequently refers to. One of them is the “History of the Credit Card.” It was a program aired on PBS. Its aim was to expose the credit card industry. You can view the program here.
Here’s part of the introduction:
“In “Secret History of the Credit Card,” FRONTLINE® and The New York Times join forces to investigate an industry few Americans fully understand. In this one-hour report, correspondent Lowell Bergman uncovers the techniques used by the industry to earn record profits and get consumers to take on more debt.”
You should take the time to view the video and read the articles on PBS. Check out the video.
The other reference Kevin Trudeau refers to is the movie “Maxed Out.” Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie from the official site:
“Maxed Out takes viewers on a journey deep inside the American style of debt, where things seem fine as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time. With coverage that spans from small American towns all the way to the White House, the film shows how the modern financial industry really works, explains the true definition of “preferred customer” and tells us why the poor are getting poorer while the rich keep getting richer. Hilarious, shocking and incisive, Maxed Out paints a picture of a national nightmare which is all too real for most of us.”
You can view clips and more at the Maxed Out site.
You should take some time to visit the PBS site and read more about Maxed Out. The more time you spend educating yourself about debt and how the system is geared to work against you, the more energy you’ll spend to get out of debt.
I’ll post a few more items I’ve learned from reading Debt Cures in the near future.
Have a great weekend.
