America Maxes Out
Patrick Creadon, director of the critically acclaimed Wordplay, challenges the United State's excessive spending habits in I.O.U.S.A. - One Nation, Under Stress, In Debt. The government is currently around $10 trillion in debt, and by current standards the number could climb to $54 trillion by 2040.
I.O.U.S.A. follows former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker as he interviews various specialists on economic reform. In addition to suggested money management skills, certain efforts like the Concentrated Youth of America hope to inspire newer generations to act upon this financial crisis, paving the way for their own future.
