I.O.U.S.A. Movie Trailer

Thanks for a reader for pointing this out - looks like a great date movie! :) Should easily surpass Batman - the Dark Knight in its first week ;) Some of my favorite movie actors of all time - Alan Greenspan, Ron Paul, David Walker, George W Bush, Paul Volcker, Paul O'Neil (the administration buried this guy), Warren Buffet. And it's in a format more Americans can actually absorb - video ;) Here is the official site - looks like it did well at Sundance Festival.

Wake up, America! We're on the brink of a financial meltdown. I.O.U.S.A. boldly examines the rapidly growing national debt and its consequences for the United States and its citizens. Burdened with an ever-expanding government and military, increased international competition, overextended entitlement programs, and debts to foreign countries that are becoming impossible to honor, America must mend its spendthrift ways or face an economic disaster of epic proportions.

Throughout history, the American government has found it nearly impossible to spend only what has been raised through taxes. Wielding candid interviews with both average American taxpayers and government officials, Sundance veteran Patrick Creadon (Wordplay) helps demystify the nation's financial practices and policies. The film follows former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker as he crisscrosses the country explaining America's unsustainable fiscal policies to its citizens.

With surgical precision, Creadon interweaves archival footage and economic data to paint a vivid and alarming profile of America's current economic situation. The ultimate power of I.O.U.S.A. is that the film moves beyond doomsday rhetoric to proffer potential financial scenarios and propose solutions about how we can recreate a fiscally sound nation for future generations.
