The Film

Veteran filmmaker Patrick Creadon (Wordplay) released his prescient doc, I.O.U.S.A., just as the financial freefall the film predicts was becoming a reality. I.O.U.S.A. boldly examines the rapidly growing national debt and its alarming consequences. As the Baby Boomer generation prepares to retire, will there be any Social Security benefits left to collect? Burdened with an ever-expanding government and military, overextended entitlement programs, and debts to foreign countries, the film contends that America must mend its ways or face an economic disaster of epic proportions.
