I.O.U.S.A: An “Inconvenient Truth” For The U.S. Economy

I.O.U.S.A is being touted as “An Inconvenient Truth” for the U.S. economy. It is a new film that aims to shed light on the dire straits of the U.S. deficit economy. “An Inconvenient Truth” acted as a wake-up call for many about the problems we face with global warming, and film promoters are saying that this film will have the same effect about the U.S. economy. The film is debuting August 21st in 400 theaters across the country, followed by a live video town hall meeting with Warren Buffet, among others, and will open the following day in 10 cities, according to the Washington Post.

I’ve already got my tickets and am curious to see how the film turned out. I’ve heard really good reports about it so far. For those of you who aren’t already heading to the theater to watch it on the 21st, I will report back and let you know how it was.

If you’re curious about the movie and want to find out more about it, make sure to read the Washington Post article on it, which explains how the movie came to be and provides some background information on the production and financing of the movie, in case that stuff interests you. For more information on the movie itself, visit the movie’s website. The film was produced by Agora Entertainment, and their website also has some information about the movie. Last but not least, I’ve attached the movie trailer to this post so you can get a little sneak peek of the film. I think it is about time that the country wakes up to the potential problems our enormous deficit poses, and I applaud, if nothing else, the idea behind making I.O.U.S.A. Of course, I will have to withhold judgment on whether it is any good until the 21st.
