Synopsis
Burdened with an ever-expanding government and military, increased international competition, massively over-extended entitlement programs and debts to foreign countries that are impossible to honour, America must end its spendthrift ways or face an economic disaster of epic proportions. Authorities among the highest levels of global power, boldly examine the staggering growth of US national debt, its ramifications and global repercussions. The ultimate power of IOUSA is that the film moves beyond doomsday rhetoric to proffer potential financial scenarios and propose solutions. Pointedly topical and consummately non-partisan, IOUSA seriously drives home its message.
