Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

All of the measures by the federal government to stem the tide in the financial meltdown that began with the subprime mortgage crisis have added hundreds of billions of dollars to our national debt. FRONTLINE reports on how this debt will constrain and challenge the new Obama administration, and on the growing chorus, on both sides of the political aisle, that without fiscal reform the United States government may face a debt crisis of its own in years to come that make the current financial problems look almost painless by comparison. Through interviews with the leading experts and insiders in government finance, the film investigates the causes and potential outcomes of and possible solutions to America's 10 trillion dollar debt.
