Budget crisis reading recommended by Bill Gates
That’s made very clear by USA Inc., an excellent, new, non-partisan report. It’s by Mary Meeker, a highly respected financial analyst and partner at Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, the very successful venture capital firm based in Silicon Valley. Mary’s report looks at the financials of the U.S. government as a business. It vividly demonstrates why the United States is headed toward bankruptcy unless we act decisively to reduce expenses and increase revenues. I want to encourage everyone to read USA Inc. and get involved in helping all levels of government to make the right choices that will put our nation’s public finances on a more sustainable course.
