New book reveals the participation of salesmen in the plundering of the mortgage and credit markets

Xlibris, the self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Collateral Damage: Life as a Mortgage Broker: The Lust and the Bust by author Ralph J. Migliozzi. This book is a story about the implosion of the mortgage industry and the lives of salesmen.

In this book, readers will find the plundering of the mortgage and credit markets as both a comical and tragic story. According to the author, this feat could not have been accomplished without the help of a dedicated and short sighted real estate sales force. Finding ways to qualify unqualified borrowers was the only obstacle in the way of ruining an industry. This could not have been possible without the innovative help of Wall Street salesmen who bribed the bond rating companies into ignoring loan underwriting standards. This is the incredible story of how sales people hijacked common sense and destroyed Main Street.

The contents of this book will shock readers, maybe even anger them, but the story has to be told. Migliozzi invites readers to witness how the salesmen of the mortgage industry were all participants on the road to their industry’s demise. Their roles are evident; no one in it is spared.
