On Sunday, February 21st at 3:30 p.m., Darien Library, in co-sponsorship with the League of Women Voters, will present the highly-acclaimed documentary, I.O.U.S.A.
I.O.U.S.A. boldly examines the rapidly growing national debt and its consequences for the United States and its citizens. America is burdened with an ever-expanding government and military, increased international competition, overextended entitlement programs, and debts to foreign countries that are becoming impossible to honor. This documentary utilizes archival footage and economic data to paint a vivid and alarming profile of America's current economic situation. The film also uses candid interviews and featured subjects include Warren Buffett, Alan Greenspan, Paul O'Neill, Robert Rubin, and Paul Volcker. The ultimate power of I.O.U.S.A., however, is that the film moves beyond doomsday rhetoric to proffer potential financial scenarios and propose solutions about how we can recreate a fiscally sound nation for future generations.
