"This eye-opening book sounds the alarm about many Americans' dim financial futures if consumers, businesses, and politicians don't change their ways. Jane White lays blame and names names. Until change happens, White offers prescriptions for your biggest money concerns- retirement, housing, college costs, and credit cards-featuring tried-and-true advice."

-Gregory Karp, Syndicated Newspaper Columnist and Author of The 1-2-3 Money Plan and Living Rich by Spending Smart


"Jane White has written a barnburner of a book. Though the title may cause alarm, America, Welcome to the Poorhouse is ultimately reassuring. We can protect our own financial futures if we get wise-and get together to demand real change."

-Jacob S. Hacker, Author of The Great Risk Shift: The New Economic Insecurity and the Decline of the American Dream


"Americans need this vigorous wake-up call if they are to make it through the first half of the 21st century. They are burying themselves in debt-for education, for homes, and for toys-leaving too little for savings and investment. Jane White shows them where they are going wrong and how they can put themselves right."

-Thomas G. Donlan, Editorial Page Editor, Barron's National Business and Financial Weekly
