U.S. Is Bankrupt and We Don't Even Know It: Laurence Kotlikoff - Bloomberg.com
Let’s get real. The U.S. is bankrupt. Neither spending more nor taxing less will help the country pay its bills.
What it can and must do is radically simplify its tax, health-care, retirement and financial systems, each of which is a complete mess. But this is the good news. It means they can each be redesigned to achieve their legitimate purposes at much lower cost and, in the process, revitalize the economy.
It's not too late folks. The libertarian train has plenty of seats.
