Advertiser Disclosure Comments 0 Comments

Tune in to this week’s installment of The Credit Line, hosted by Credit.com’s chairman and co-founder Adam Levin on Los Angeles’ KFWB 980 AM this Saturday, August 13, at 9 a.m. PST/Noon EST.

The show is co-hosted by L.A. radio personality Jeff Levy.

The Deal with the U.S. Debt Downgrade

J.J. Bianco, law professor, former CEO of an NYSE traded company, and specialist in mergers and acquisitions, joins us to discuss the effect the Standard and Poor’s U.S. debt downgrade will have on our country, what it’ll take to get us an upgrade and how this will play out for consumers. Then, credit scoring expert John Ulzheimer stops by to talk about the downgrade, the volatile stock market, the Fed’s decision to keep the Federal Funds Rate low into 2013—and how, or whether, these things could affect consumer credit.
