The U.S. National Debt is setting the stage for massive tax increases within the next 10 years and will impact a retiring generation of Baby Boomers.

More critical now than when produced!!

I saw this documentary when it was first available in 2018 and it impacted all of my retirement planning. Fast forward to 2022 and global economics are worse than anyone would dare to imagine just three years ago.

Limits on Roth Contributions
Verified purchase
The government put limits on how much money you can contribute to Roth IRAs. Makes sense otherwise everyone would put all their savings in this vehicle that will never be taxed. Whole life insurance on the other hand doesn't have contribution limits. Warehousing cash for future use in the cash value of whole life has been around for almost 200 years. If you are going to invest in life insurance, be sure you connect with an agent that can help you buy from a mutually owned company. This is super important to the growth of your cash value. Do your research and make sure your selected company is not a stock company.

A must see...
Verified purchase
If you want to plan for your financial future or you want to get background on how current world issues are going to affect you financially. You can definitely read a lot of books and do a lot of research or... watch this movie. This gives a good overall neutral view of the United States' financial status and its future.

Life changing! Absolutely everyone needs to see this!
Verified purchase
In the long awaited follow-up movie to his book title of the same name, author David McKnight takes his incredible crusade to the big screen in "The Power of Zero". I must admit I am much more into films of the entertaining blockbuster type and not much of a documentary or educational film goer, however, this movie is an absolute must watch for people of all ages. The message and crusade behind this movie is one of the most important causes in modern day America in my opinion. I cannot say enough good things about this film other than you should definitely take the hour and 15 minutes to watch it today!

This is something every working american should watch! If you think you are doing a good job saving for retirement and your future, think again. Uncle Sam is coming for your retirement account, and most Americans are asleep at the wheel.

A little drawn out

It was ok, but it looks like they had to work to stretch the show out.
