  1. If they handed out an Academy Award for Most Gripping Graphs and Charts, this film would take it.

    It accomplishes an amazing thing. It explains the national debt, the foreign trade deficit, the decrease in personal savings, how the prime interest rate works, and the weakness of our leaders.
  3. There's no quick fix for a culture "addicted to debt," as one wag puts it in the film. But watching I.O.U.S.A. is a good place to start.
  4. 83
    An informative and frightening documentary.
