Lately, everyone has had their eye on the economy. We have all watched our investment and retirement portfolios shrink. And it's not just our personal finances that are in trouble - our federal government owes a staggering $53 trillion in debts, liabilities, and other financial obligations.
That's why the Peter G. Peterson Foundation is proud to present our acclaimed documentary I.O.U.S.A. It boldly and at times comically examines the nation's rapidly growing debt and its consequences. The film has been a huge hit, getting rave reviews from Roger Ebert and others.
