Overdraft Screening


Pace University and the Travelers Institute presented a screening of Overdraft, a one-hour documentary made for public television that presents a compelling explanation of America's federal debt crisis, how it impacts American lives, and choices to address the problem. Following the screening, faculty experts from Pace participated in a panel discussion along with a special guest from the Travelers Institute to examine this topic. The screening was part of the Travelers Institute's national Overdraft University Symposia Series. Students were encouraged to think critically about potential policy solutions and their implications for the American opportunity.
