Essenial Question: How does the US being in debt effect todays youth?

My Process

The United States is in a lot of debt and we need to find ways to save money. We should also make some budget cuts, but in the right areas. "Money is an opportunity for happiness, but it is an opportunity that people routinely squander because the things they think will make them happy often don't." (Elizabeth Dunn, Daniel Gilbert and Timothy D. Wilson) We should monitor what we spend on wants.

There are many simple and easy ways to save money. One sure way to monitor spending would be to start a budget. "When it comes to money and so many other things in life, understanding your weaknesses and strengths can help you with your future plans.” (Tagene Brown-McBean) Budgeting is a smart way to manage money. The government has a budget, but if we are trillions of dollars in debt then we need to change it up.
