Amazon.com Price: $13.15 (as of 26/06/2022 08:57 PST- Details)

Imposing pillars, pretentious marble floors, stuffy boardrooms and stifling bureaucracy…ah banking. In the wake of the S&L fiasco, regulation came down hard on the profession integral to our national economy. Commercial lending ground to a halt in the early ’90s and Arthur Miller could have penned a sequel known as Death of a Businessman. Access to capital was forever changed by those events. Obtaining business loans in today’s highly regulated environment requires special knowledge and skills previously unneeded. Written by a banker, How To Obtain Business Loans is always humorous and frequently sarcastic. The author aims his wit at the funny (if it weren’t so serious) manner in which banks study commercial credit applications. So, while you’re being entertained, you’ll garner the inside information required to get the business loans you need. How To Obtain Business Loans is an education in the ways that banks are currently set up, how they operate in the prevailing environment, the way they look at you and how to get the most out of your relationship with them. Rephrased that’s who you need to be talking to at the bank, what loans they are willing to do and under what conditions, what’s important on your application for financing and how to get your loan approved. The author has a special knack for making the industry’s rules and regulations crystal clear. Blame is laid on a regulatory system which hurts the very individuals it is supposed to help – the small business people of this country. A group, by the way, that creates 80% of the jobs nationwide. This book is not some macro-economic report on the current status of the economy. You’ll hear what’s actually happening in our financial institutions from a banker waste deep in regulation and bureaucracy. You’ll come away with the knowledge of what really goes on in the boardroom, and how you must adjust to successfully obtain credit. You’ll be getting the real story. How To Obtain Business Loans is an expose like none ever written about the financial service industry. Its contents are highly controversial and thought provoking. In short, the book lets the public in on secrets bankers and government officials have kept close to those gray vests. The details are given in short-story form, relating actual instances from the author’s own experience as a bank officer. With that in mind (as you would expect) all the names and financial figures have been changed to protect the anonymity of the parties involved. Which is why the author was forced to use a pseudonym, so as not to call attention to the institutions that retained him. Readers should take special note that the occurrences/conditions recounted are indicative of all similar sized institutions. Which is to say regional sized banks where most of American business goes for financing.

From the Back Cover

Addison Parker plays deep throat to the banking industry’s Watergate

“Bankers and regulators would do well to reevaluate their current course based upon the look in the mirror this book provides.” Banker’s name withheld

“Rarely does one get the chance to see the analysis of a loan or application from the banker’s side. This book provides key insights into why banks make some of the decisions they do, and what a company can do to make it easier to obtain financing in this age of increasing regulation.” Stephen Kauffman, President-Divco Construction Corp.

“Very informative! A well written, easy to understand guide for small businesses.” James P. Dellas, CEO-U.S. Capital & Development, Inc.

“An excellent and easily read reference on how we ended up where we are, and how to acquire credit in this new era of banking. I’m in the process of putting several of the book’s methods to immediate use.” Lynn A. Daugherty, CEO-Grove’s Edge Building Company

“The Concord Coalition will not issue a statement on the book…” A nationwide grass roots movement to eliminate the deficit. Co-Chaired by senators Paul E. Tsongas and Warren B. Rudman

The link between current banking practices and the Federal Deficit is a well-kept and frightening secret!
