Back to the Black: The British Debt to Wealth System

Back to the Black was a phrase that was very common up to the 1970’s. Bear in mind that there was no internet in those days. This meant that every month the bank would post you a bank statement. If you had overspent, you would find that the statement was printed in red ink. According to the values of the time this was quite shameful. So you had to get ‘ Out of the Red and Back to the black’

Being in the black was a way of life but we lost touch with it in the 1980’s.

Now with the pandemic, getting out of debt is an even greater issue. That is why Back to the Black: How to get out of debt and stay out of debt is an important contribution to money education.

[[ASIN:1842851411 Dr Graham Lawler’s Back to the Black: How to Get Out of Debt and Stay Out of Debt

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr Graham Lawler’s Back to the Black ….Reviewed in the United Kingdom I read this book and have to say that Graham Lawler’s advice makes a lot of sense. What is interesting is his self effacing honesty about his previous financial situation and how he was able to turn it around .This is inspiring to to others in such a situation . Move over Alvin Hall !!
Packed with facts and interestingly written, Graham makes a difficult subject palatable and most importantly do-able
