I.O.U.S.A: One Nation. Under Stress. In Debt
The United States has been spending its way deeper and deeper into the red, and saddling future generations with the mess–but who's paying attention? To answer that question, this companion book to the critically acclaimed documentary I.O.U.S.A. talks with some of the most revered voices in the nation, including Warren Buffett; former Treasury Secretaries Paul O'Neill and Robert Rubin; and Pete Peterson, CEO of The Blackstone Group. Defiantly non-partisan, the empowering solutions outlined in these pages are a must-read for any American concerned about the current state of affairs.
