"Whitney Tilson´s sobering review of the debt bubble, and what we might expect to see in the next 1 to (gulp...) 25 years is an excellent reminder that we need to constantly plan and be prepared for potentially ugly scenarios in both our personal and our business lives. Tilson also provides an excellent perspective on the current situation.

Tilson´s presentation of what happened offers that 'what' and 'why.'"
