That is a good video, thanks for passing it along Paul. I'll recommend it at the meetup on sunday. So the national debt is currently 8.7 trillion dollars. Perhaps if we didn't have a debt based system in the first place we wouldn't have gotten so far in the hole. I loved the part about Cheney firing the honest economist, saying we aren't concerned about debt. What a dick.

:P

This video clip does an excellent job laying out the enormity of the debt and the cluelessness and the average American, but I find this film's explanation of the causes of this debt and the economic crisis a bit superficial.

There is nothing about the Fed, the IRS, the government fraud as policy, the missing trillions, etc…

It’s almost as if this film intends to usher in a new era -- OUT with the Islamo-fascists-radical-scary-swarthy-lo­oking War on Terror era and IN with The Economy is in Crisis get ready to tighten your belt buckles era.

It is interesting Paul that you linked to this video through the Peter G. Peterson Foundation website. I’ve seen interviews with Peterson, and he seems like a nice enough fellow. But, his connections to WTC7 are interesting and slightly suspect.

The mortgage on WTC 7 was purchased in 2000 by the Blackstone Group, a private equity fund managed by Steven Schwarzman and chaired by banker Peter Petersen (who at the time was also chairman of the New York Federal Reserve Bank and the Council on Foreign Relations). Blackstone Group is heavily invested in the military sector, perhaps appropriate given some of the building's many government tenants.

below are some other videos that might be good background for Peter's meetup on the economy.

(sorry most of these are pretty long)
