It's About Empowering You To Protect The American Dream

Generations before you, perhaps including your own parents and grandparents, entrusted you with a vision founded on courage, independence, hard work, personal responsibility and common sense financial values. Like "Always hope for the best but prepare for the worst." And "If it sounds too good to be true it probably is."

There is much you can learn from the past few years of American history and the years leading up to them. No doubt it has been a costly education for everyone. But that glass is half full and now you're in the midst of the great American "do-over." This is your chance to learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others, get yourself and your great nation back on track, and protect your Dream - the American Dream - of upward financial and social mobility, common sense financial values, self-sufficiency, homeownership, a stronger middle class, and hope for a better future for your kids and your country.

Whether you're a homeowner, a banker, a commercial real estate investor, or one of the other tens of millions who has been touched, this website, my book and I myself, am dedicated to helping empower you, our country and each of its citizens to squeeze all the lessons we can from our collective mistakes, figure out how to fix them, and move onward and upward.

As was the case following the Great Depression, the next decade in American history will change lives for generations to come. Make your own imprint a beneficial one!

Welcome to Foreclosure Nation: Mortgaging the American Dream online. Writing a book about an on-going economic crisis is like herding cats. Critical facets evolve in real time as you write. In the case of our nation's subprime crisis, accurate, complete and current information is central to the important decisions many of us are now making every day;

If you're a bank decision-maker, should you consider that offer to buy the paper on a certain non-performing commercial development project even if the offer is 30% under face value or do statistical indicators point to demand in that geographic region in the not too far off future?

If you're a distressed homeowner, do you have a loan with one of the lenders that is offering modifications now? If so, is a modification an option for you or should you prepare yourself for a deeper remedy, maybe a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure?

If you're a developer in or at risk of default, what can you offer the bank to convince them to give you a little more time?

If you're an investor, where are the best opportunities in terms of , geography, particular lenders, property type or deal structure?

Even if you're none of the above and simply an American with concern about your investments or the economy or our country, accurate, complete and current information…in real time…is fundamental to informed to choosing wisely and choosing wisely is the key to navigating this crises. For you, your company, your neighbors, friends and family and our leaders.

Enter this website.
