Question 1
Question 1 of 5

Six years ago, lawyer-banker-scholar Charles Morris wrote a prophetic book - 'Two-Trillion-Dollar Meltdown: Easy Money, High-Rollers and the Great Credit Crunch' - that foresaw the 2008 Great Recession before it clobbered America and the world.

Now Morris has reversed course and sees good times ahead. His forthcoming book, 'Comeback,' predicts that surging U.S. energy independence will bring a buoyant rise in American manufacturing and jobs.

The implication of this passage is that you should pay attention to Charles Morris because:

He's an economic expert
His predictions have come true once already
He was lucky with his first prediction
His first book was a best seller
