White House Burning
The Founding Fathers, Our National Debt, and Why It Matters to YouBook - 2012 | First edition.
75,000 1st print. By the authors of the national bestseller "13 Bankers", a chilling account of America's unprecedented debt crisis: how it came to pass, why it threatens to topple the nation as a superpower if it is not addressed soon, and why this might be impossible given the hypocrisy about government deficits prevalent in Washington today. With bracing clarity, "Deluded" explains why the national debt matters to your everyday life. It gives a clear account of the ways in which the government has been able to pay off its debt in the past, even after the massive deficits incurred as a result of World War II. It analyzes why this is no longer possible. And it makes unquestionably clear how recent financial turmoil exacerbated the debt crisis while creating a political climate in which it is even more difficult to solve.
