Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders

Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders ★★½ 2006

Scurlock tries to explain the wheeling and dealing of the financial community by focusing on the worst case scenarios of the consumer-lending industry, involving massive consumer debt, too easy credit, ill-advised loans, and bankruptcy and foreclosures. Basically most people are dumb about money and even dumber when it comes to borrowing and getting into (and less likely out of) debt. 86m/C DVD . USD: James D. Scurlock; W: James D. Scurlock; C: Jon Aaron Aaseng; M: Benoit Vharest.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Modern Language Association

The Chicago Manual of Style

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
