Question 1 of 3

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:

His predictions have come true once already
He`s an economic expert
His new book is a best seller
The U.S. is becoming more energy independent
