"I.O.U.S.A. tells the story of America in debt. Faced with key deficits in budget, savings, trade and leadership, increased foreign competition and ballooning financial obligations, the federal government is critically overextended. With the economy already in shambles, 78 million baby boomers are now expecting retirement benefits from their indebted federal government. Weaving together archival footage, economic data and candid interviews with Warren Buffett, Alan Greenspan, Paul O'Neill, Robert Rubin, Alice Rivlin and Paul Volcker, along with David Walker of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and Robert Bixby of the Concord Coalition, the film offers a vivid and alarming profile of America's financial status."--Container.

I.O.U.S.A. One nation. Under stress. In massive debt ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
For some, the state of America's finances holds about as much interest as watching brainiacs labor over the New York Times crossword puzzle, but that's why WORDPLAY director Patrick Creadon was the perfect person to helm this documentary. Alternately entertaining, informative, and disheartening, I.O.U.S.A. is a timely and essential film that explores the U.S. fiscal crisis, focusing primarily on the country's high level of international debt. But this nonpartisan documentary doesn't merely blame the Bush administration; I.O.U.S.A. chronicles America's financial history, starting with the 18th century and discussing the country's trend of living beyond its means, both in wartime and in peace. For those who had trouble with high school economics, I.O.U.S.A. pleads its case with more charts and graphs than the S.A.T.s. But the documentary avoids an overload of graphics and numbers, focusing on the human efforts of former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker as he discusses the country's financial issues with Americans across the country. I.O.U.S.A. also features interviews with Alan Greenspan, Ron Paul, and the always charismatic Warren Buffett. The film spends most of its time explaining the dire situation, even likening contemporary America to the Roman Empire just before its fall. However, I.O.U.S.A. leaves the audience with some hope, using its conclusion to offer solutions to the problem, beginning with Americans addressing their own debt and how they can help the nation as a whole.
