Clear Non-Partisan explanation of the National Debt Crisis and Possible Solutions
19 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

I would say the average American has positively no clue just how serious the debt crisis is. This documentary takes the highly complex problem of the US debt crisis and breaks it down in terms the average person can understand. Possible solutions are offered.

President Bill Clinton was interviewed extensively and made some surprising revelations about the debt and the solutions. While this important topic can be rather depressing at times, it ends on a positive, hopeful note.

You MUST see this BEFORE the election. The entire movie is available for free on youtube:
