In part two in our series, “Greed is Now Respectable” we visit again with Attorney Prescott Cole, employed by California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform based in San Francisco, California. We discuss what a reverse mortgage is and the grave and potential economic and social consequences to which purchasers of a reverse mortgage are exposed. We talk about annuities, what they are, what they cost, and why an annuity is a poor investment for seniors. We include a discussion of how Veterans eligible for aid benefits have been lured into giving away their assets in an attempt to become eligible for the aid benefits.

Our conversation with Attorney Prescott Cole was recorded from his office in San Francisco on June 9, 2011. We discuss what a reverse mortgage is and the grave and potential economic and social consequences to which purchasers of a reverse mortgage are exposed. We talk about annuities, what they are, what they cost, and why an annuity is a poor investment for seniors.

We began our conversation when I asked Precott Cole to tell us about reverse mortgages.

The books Prescott Cole recommends are those written by P.G. Wodehouse, about Jeeves the Butler.
