Broke: The New American Dream

These are tough times. The stock market has imploded. Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and AIG have become part of the government. Firms like Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch & Bear Stearns have gone under. Inflation? Have you been to the grocery store recently? And all the while we continue to play the lottery and trust social security. Let's face it, we were not designed to deal with risk and uncertainty. It scares the you know what out of us. What are we doing wrong? What can we do better? No one asked Michael Covel to make this film, but he was concerned this story would not get told in the most hopeful way, so he is telling it. We don't have to be "broke". There is a way out!
