I began to read this book after I had read Paying With Plastic, and had begun to read the books As We Forgive Our Debtors and the Fragile Middle Class. Credit Card Nation is a good complement to each. Although at times I feel the book is a bit polemical, and I am continually frustrated by the author's insistence to publish in six point font, the book manages to be both informative and humorous.

The book seeks to tell us where we are, how we got here, and where we are most likely headed, if we persist in our ways. I especially found Table 4.2 on pages 122-3 most enlightening, as it shows the great disparity in both access to and type of credit available to various socio-economic groups. As such, the book provides copious ammunition for my contention that we are quickly moving towards what I call The New and Improved Fuedalism (or is it slavery?).
