We've recommended before the insightful investigative journalism of Jake Halpern on the debt collection industry (see here for a post earlier this month and here for a story from 2010). Last week, Halpern appeared on Fresh Air to discuss his new book, Bad Paper: Chasing Debt from Wall Street to the Underworld. Eye opening and definitely worth a listen, here. Among his recurring themes is the lack of regulation of the industry.
