Storyline

The goal of the film is to give viewers a better understanding of how the federal debt affects their daily lives, the choices that will have to be made to manage the problem, and how they can participate in the ongoing economic debate. Through first person accounts, the factors that have contributed to the debt and possible solutions are presented, including such major topics as entitlement programs, defense spending, tax reform, and the choices America's debt forces on individuals and businesses. In addition to the documentary, the production team has developed five, one-minute segments on key topics in the documentary. Written by Anonymous

There is no documentary that better explains today's US Economic challenges than "Overdraft".
1 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Although the economy, now in 2013, is better than it was when this doc was released- the underlying threat towards another financial crises still exists.

This documentary explains how the only way to address the debt is to make real sacrifices from both sides of the aisle. Simpson & Bowles gives an objective, rational road map to neutralizing the debt crises.

This doc is well shot, well edited, well produced and directed and expresses its issues clearly, intelligently & concisely. Don't believe the low star rating- anyone who rated this with only one or two stars likely works for big pharma.
