Ted Krager

Subject Mater Expert (SME) on the Financial Crisis. Whistleblower. 12 years on Wall Street, serial entrepreneur building/selling small businesses. The last one was to be my coup de grace achieving every entrepreneurs dream, taking the company public via an IPO I started from my basement literally under a fluorescent light, "Yes I built that" into a 310 employee mortgage banking operation in 39 states-never did subprime loans, don't believe in them. A few weeks away from our IPO, the meltdown began in 2007; we had to pull our SEC filing and eventually lost the company. Served on several mortgage and related industry boards for years; was my state's mortgage association president a few years before the financial crisis and was in Washington D.C. 4-5 times per year... saw/heard things that should have set off alarm bells as to the disaster that about to unfold. "Too close to the forest to see the trees" until it was too late, I was caught totally off guard like most people but focused my anger on writing book, exposing the people in Washington D.C., their acts and ideological goals that took down the global economy. www.skullduggerybook.com and www.skullduggerybook.blogspot.com
