As far as documentaries go, I.O.U.S.A. is not quite as exciting or funny as one of Michael Moore’s films, but the impact is there anyway. The main point of the movie is that the United States is in debt – big time – to the tune of around 45 TRILLION dollars. The movie explains just how we got there. As far as ways to get ourselves out of this mess, we need to be really aware of the leaders we elect, and also not get ourselves personally into debt. Only spend what you have. If there is one message that rings out loud and clear it is that: only spend what you have.
I think this movie should be required viewing for all high school and college students, and they are the ones who are inheriting this huge problem.
