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
Excellent documentary. Full of an abundance of information critical to the current and future state of our economy and its debt position. Valuable facts, statistics, and projections, presented in an informative and entertaining format. If you want to know where this country is, where it was, how it got there and where it's headed; check this movie out!
I never did fully understand the situation with the national debt and the budget deficit and trade deficit, but after watching this I understand a little better. The situation is scarey and I wish we were spend more time educating Americans on this than how Michael Jackson died. ( God rest his soul )
This may be the most important film about what will shape the future of this country. If our leaders are going to solve these problems it is vital that the public understand the problem.
Watch this film!
Very good explanation of the U.S. debt, deficit and trade imbalance both historically and currently. The information is stated in a very clear manner. You do not need to be an economist to understand it. I want to see this film again to better absorb the many critical facts, analysis and predictions. This is a must see film for anyone who wants to be an informed citizen.
This movie is a real eye opener and instructive. It will wake up anyone who watches it. The message: Spend no more than you earn and don't incur debt. Pay your own way and stop relying on the government to loan us our own money.
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!
