Sure to pique your interest rate


If you thought the last one was fun, hang onto your portfolio! Here comes a brand new economic roller coaster ride that sweeps the globe again. This time, it's micro-loans and a hotshot financier who sets the world spinning in pursuit of the kind of wealth that would make Warren Buffet blush. A snappy, irreverent satire with guaranteed return.




Interview on WUWM's Lake Effect


"...satiric, wickedly smart, and hard-hitting..."


"...it does what humor does best - it makes you laugh through the tears."


"No play about finance should be as good as MICROCRISIS has wonderfully managed to be."
