Two young entrepreneurs are developing an online game that will give users choices on how to pay back their share of the national debt. Just an FYI, your share of the national debt is roughly $201,000.
A trailer of the game can be seen here. Before you ask – yes, the game will integrate with Facebook.
This game seems to be part of a growing trend of young people being concerned about the ballooning national debt.
Paying $200,000+ back is a daunting task, so users will be given tough choices to make – should you raise the retirement age? Sell federal assets? Cut defense? Open an IRA? Raise gas taxes? Eliminate earmarks? Opt out of social security? All or none of the above? The choice will be yours, as the game is coming soon to a computer near you.
