This hard-hitting documentary investigates why so many Americans - college and high school students in particular - are being strangled by debt. Zeroing in on how the mall has replaced the factory as America's dominant economic engine, Emmy Award-winning former ABC News and CNN producer Danny Schechter shows how college students are being forces to pay higher interest on loans while graduating, on average, with more than $20,000 in consumer debt. The film empowers as it enrages, delivering an accessible and fascinating introduction to what former Reagan adviser Kevin Phillips has called 'the debt-and-credit industrial complex.
