Editors: Christensen, Jane R.
Book Description:
The growing national debt seems to be of no interest in America at the present time. This is no doubt because its burden will be largely shifted forward to future generations who now are either not yet born or are only children. Many say let them worry about themselves! However, a vast national debt can also impact today’s society and for that reason alone, should be an important issue for voters. This book is a primer on the national debt and the issues surrounding it.
