There is a corruption at the heart of American politics, caused by the dependence of Congressional candidates on funding from the tiniest percentage of citizens. That's the argument at the core of this blistering talk by legal scholar Lawrence Lessig. With rapid-fire visuals, he shows how the funding process weakens the Republic in the most fundamental way, and issues a rallying bipartisan cry that will resonate with many in the U.S. and beyond.
KPCB partner Mary Meeker, an investor and former financial analyst at Morgan Stanley, compiled this imaginative report to inform the discussion of America’s financial situation and outlook. USA Inc. examines the U.S. government’s income statement and balance sheet, interprets the underlying data and facts, and illustrates patterns and trends in easily understandable terms. This timely and comprehensive report also analyzes what’s driving federal revenue and the history of expense growth, and it presents some practical scenarios for how revenue and expense growth might change to help the country move toward positive cash flow. Read the full report to see why Mary and her co-contributors say, “We believe it’s especially important to pay closer attention to one of our most important investments.”

Beginning with a revolution, and ending on the other side of the world, it is a story about money, oil , and a clandestine romance of a beautiful woman in love with a man from a foreign land. This is where cultures clash, friendships tested, bonds broken and lives lost, in an international conspiracy of lies, spies and secret agendas, hidden behind a Golden Veil.
