Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 08/22/2008
"Packed with facts, figures and the testimony of policy experts, the film is no wallow in wonkiness...but a surprisingly sprightly tough-love lesson in fiscal responsibility."
New York Times - 08/22/2008
"Brimful of disquieting facts on inflation, trade deficits and Wall Street's influence on national monetary policy....Equal parts enlightening and alarming, I.O.U.S.A. highlights our unwise preference for short-term reward over long-term planning..."
