Book Description
Just the word "bankruptcy" sends such a negative message to many people that they cannot face up to their personal and financial responsibility. For years, they will live in misery trying to manage financial obligations that are simply beyond their means. The myth of bankruptcy is that people greedily spend thousands more than they can ever hope to repay, and with a cynical glee, seek the protection of the courts to the dismay of their creditors. The reality of bankruptcy is that most people want to and try to repay debts. Bankruptcy results far more often because of events not in our control: loss of a job, health problems, disability, divorce, lawsuits, tax problems and more. The courts have created and administered a fair, reasonable system whereby honest people can find relief from unexpected and unwanted...

Big Bets Gone Bad

From Publishers Weekly
Jorion (finance, Univ. of California-Irvine) had a ringside seat at the great Orange County, California, financial debacle of 1994. He gives readers information about the major players and a thorough analysis of the esoteric financial instruments that provided the vehicle by which the treasurer, Robert Citron, bankrupted the county after losing $1.5 billion. Readers unfamiliar with financial jargon may find the chapters detailing the high-flying world of repos and derivatives heavy going, but those interested in learning what really happened in Orange County will find that time invested in Jorion's book is well spent. Recommended for public and academic libraries.Andrea C. Dragon, Coll. of St. Elizabeth, Convent Station, N.J.Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Publishers Weekly
In a tour de force of punchy business writing, Institutional Investor senior editor Rosenberg dissects a little-known but increasingly common high-stakes financial game: preying on companies in distress. Operating in a $400 billion "debt market," financiers like Paul Kazarian and Marty Whitman snap up an ailing firm's bonds and bank loans at a discount, then participate in the ensuing bankruptcy or other reorganization process, which usually results in their holdings substantially increasing in value. Case histories illuminate the investors' methods, introduce the field's key players and give blow-by-blow accounts of major corporate upheavals at Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel, Coleco Toys, New Hampshire's Seabrook atomic power plant, Donald Trump's casinos and Allegheny International. The author relates these...
