Our government debt is rising every day. Our population is shifting as more people retire and fewer are able to find work. Our social programs, including the Affordable Care Act, are only adding to our financial burden, and rising taxes are hindering economic growth. We are a nation in the red.
A powerful wake-up call to leaders, investors, and citizens, this brilliantly researched book reveals the surprising truth about our national debt--and what we can do about it.
Written in clear, concise language and backed with ample data and sometimes shocking facts, A Nation in the Red presents a reasoned, straightforward approach to one of the most controversial issues of our time. You'll discover the fascinating psychological reasons that have helped create our debt trap, the staggering price of FDR's New Deal and LBJ's Great Society, and the real cost of entitlement programs like Medicare, Social Security, and welfare. You'll learn about the 2,200 federal programs that weâre all paying for--and the truth about Bush-era tax cuts versus Obama's tax hikes. You'll also discover how the five most obvious ways to reduce debt may--or may not--be the solution to our country's problems.
And most importantly, you'll learn how to protect your own wealth from the next financial crisis.
