As the United States faces unprecedented financial crises, filmmaker Patrick Creadon explores just how America got to be in the economic mess that it finds itself in, eventually detailing just what the nation would have to do in order to prevent a bad situation from turning into an all-out financial disaster from which no citizen could escape. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
This should be mandatory viewing in every civics class in America. Everybody should understand the issues of our deficit spending and the crushing national debt before walking into a voting booth. Instead, most voters and representatives in Washington are completely happy to put their heads in the sand and hope the problem goes away. It won't!
What an eye-opener this movie was. I recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about how our country has gotten into the financial crisis it has. It was very enlightening to see just who and what is really to blame.
It was too oriented towards advancing one organization. It didn't look to the overall causes of GNP drops like companies without enough operation money gobbling the old ones. It ignored the fact that the US has lost so much industry. We will have to do much more than have every family save more.
You want to see something really scary? A very sobering look at our country's financial crisis. Yeah, I know. Who wants to watch a boring documentary? You're not going to mistake this for an adventure/action movie. But this is a must see for anyone who wants to see what's happening and how we got in this mess. Things have gotten worse since this was made. It's not hopeless, though. Be sure to visit their website.

Disturbing! There seems to be no end in sight in our run-up of national debt. It's been going on for a long time now, and it's become like a run-away train. The certain danger is, our dollar will collapse. Before, we Americans used to bail out our own debt. But now with inflation, no incentive to save, and our debt outpacing our revenue, we borrow from foreigners. They've got leverage and can control our foreign policy by calling in our debt. Lookout, here it comes: the New World Order!
This is scary stuff. It should be a wake up call.......but will it be.........This should be shown in all schools. Our government has played with our wealth from the very beginning and now WE are paying for it. All citizens need to get informed- see this film.
A chilling indictment of the legislative and executive branches of government. A must see for anyone who loves this country, the U.S.A. I pity the children and grandchildren walking around today from Maine to Hawaii and from Florida to Alaska!
