April 22: The national debt, lunch and a movie, and you

How did our national debt get so bad?

And what does it mean for America’s competitiveness in the future?

Explore those questions over a complimentary lunch when a 20-minute version of the hour-long documentary film Overdraft is screened here at Fordham, courtesy of its presenting sponsor, the Travelers Institute.

Date: Monday, April 22, 2013
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m.
Location: Hughes 208
Register: Click here (Mandatory: Space is limited based on seating and lunch availability!) 

 

After the 20-minute abridged movie is shown, Joan Woodward, president of the Travelers Institute, will lead a lunchtime discussion of the national deficit with you and a few Fordham professors, including Paul Bennett. This is a great chance to hear what experts have to say and chime in with views of your own.

Overdraft, which was independently produced for public television, has aired more than 200 times and won 11 awards. Travelers has selected 20 business and public-policy schools around the United States to hold special screenings for their students, and the Gabelli School is one of them.

You can click here to watch the trailer for the movie or the full-length version, which runs one hour. But we recommend that you click here to sign up to see it with your classmates on April 22 instead. The national debt is much more palatable with a free sandwich and soda!
