Most of us don't know where their money is. However, one thing is for certain, it's is not in the bank to which we entrusted it. The bank and our money is already a part of the cycle of the global money market.

When Hurricane Katrina ravaged America's Gulf Coast, it laid bare an uncomfortable reality-America is not only far from the world's wealthiest nation; it is crumbling beneath a staggering burden of individual and government debt. Maxed Out takes us on a journey deep inside the American debt-style, where everything seems okay as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time. Sure, most of us may have that sinking feeling that something isn't quite right, but we're told not to worry. After all, there's always more credit! Maxed Out shows how the modern financial industry really works, explains the true definition of "preferred customer" and tells us why the poor are getting poorer and the rich getting richer. By turns hilarious and profoundly disturbing, Maxed Out paints a picture of a national nightmare which is all too real for most of us.Written by
Have you seen the new card that they're talking about putting out now-where you can get a credit card against your pension account, so that, when you go and charge it, it automatically, if you don't pay, will be withdrawn from the money you've put aside for your retirement? This is one more way that we're trying to string together with chewing gum and bailing wire to keep the American family looking like it's afloat long after it is really sunk with debt.

An excellent and thought provoking film about the rising problem of debt in America
This film is excellent! I believe everyone must see it! The way it was cut/edited and the brilliance of the way it was shot is amazing and phenomenal! The filmmakers really knew what they were doing in filming this movie and getting behind such a fantastic idea! It is a must see for anyone in America, it can help you better understand our nations rising debt, and It is impossible after seeing this film to not think about the way you spend your money and play your bills. I say thank you James Scurlock, John Aaron Aaeseng, and Alexis Spraic for making this film! I give it a big Woot Woot! Thank you again for making such a thought provoking and amazing film... It has changed my life and I'm sure the lives of many. Wonderful job! and Amazing work of art!
