This week I speak with Dan Gross, a senior editor and columnist at Newsweek and he writes the “Moneybox” column for Slate. Dan covers economic topics in his columns and has written a number of books with the most recent available as an eBook titled “Dumb Money: How Our Greatest Financial Minds Bankrupted the Nation”
Here’s how Dan described the book’s message on the Colbert Report.
Keywords and phrases from Dumb Money:

We also talked about the second home market and wondered whether the commercial real estate market was the next shoe to drop.
