I watched this 2008 documentary after a recommendation from a friend, and if you couldn't tell from the title it's about the debt crisis in America. I had done a bit of research about the problem prior to watching this, so I didn't take much away from the documentary. However, if you're unfamiliar with the inefficiency permeating through-out the US government and especially surrounding our budget --then you should probably give this a watch. Might be a wake-up call for some people out there.
As grim as the debt problem was at the time of this documentary, it has now gotten twice as bad. Many people aren't sure at this point if we can even pull ourselves out of the debt problem, or how to go about doing so. Ron Paul may have some feasible ideas, but without the full cooperation of those opposing him (and there are many), it may be a lost cause. I don't know how this debt scenario is going to pan out, but it probably isn't going to be pretty.
This movie is available for instant streaming on Netflix.
