Deficit Blues

ZOOM’D host John Schmidt flies solo with a candid look at the United States Deficit Blues—which, if not addressed, is likely to make us all “black and blue” with impact. John offers a compelling narrative about realities today that includes perspectives of prominent officials (Robert C. Altman, US Deputy Treasury Secretary, and Richard N. Haas, President of the Council on Foreign Relations) as well as viewpoints from past ZOOM’D guests and his own sensibilities. The episode addresses three core elements: 1) the realities of the nation’s current “road to ruin”; 2) consequences of the immense US debt and what can reasonably be anticipated; and 3) the potential pathways ahead at national, local, and personal levels. The show continues to offer a transpartisan viewpoint, not left and not right but rather one that seeks to put definitive realities at the forefront of attention. Join John as he returns ZOOM’D to a big picture reflection of the era of extraordinary change in which we live.
