MOB #68 – Auto Bailout, Fraud & Homelessness

December 15th, 2008 · podcasts

On this episode of Millionaire or Bust, we give you the bad news before we give you the good news.

This week, two more regional banks fail. One is in Georgia and the other is in Texas. We also discuss the state of the auto industry, the White House’s intention to bail them out and what effect the current and potential issues the automakers are experiencing are having on government tax revenues and expenditures.

With all these bankruptcies, foreclosures and job losses occurring, we discuss what seems an inevitable rise in homelessness. Times are tough, so if you can help out someone in need through donation to a charity or through volunteering your time, consider doing so. From a financial stand point, it’s a write off. From a personal standpoint it’ll make you feel good and improve your health. Don’t believe me? Check out Talli’s article on it at

Then we discuss the largest fraud since Enron, which was allegedly perpetrated by Bernard Madoff to the tune of $50 Billion.

We also discussed what areas of the economy were experiencing job growth, the public transport boom and the 10% rise in U.S. Video Game Sales.
