The National Economic Rescue Initiative:

 Rescuing the American Dream from Economic Crisis

Exploring and Proposing  Solutions

The American Dream, for ourselves and our children, is eroding fast.  Ever-increasing spending by the U.S. government could drive taxes higher, leaving Americans with less of their earnings.  Our nation needs solutions. The National Economic Rescue Initiative provides you with a clear understanding of how American families could be impacted by massive tax increases, and it empowers you to explore and propose solutions to rescue the American Dream for current and future generations.    


Explore the Problem Confronting America and American Families:

Our ever-growing spending, deficit and debt will soon reach a size (possibly in 2020 or sooner) when America can no longer borrow money to finance its deficit spending. As a result, Americans may be required to pay additional taxes to cover the debt -- a Debt Stabilization Tax.  (more). 


Meet Some Next and Current Generation American Families:

The PJ Institute assembled a team of economists and developers who built the PFI Projector, a web-based application that projects and quantifies possible future tax-rate increases facing American families.  You can see that financial impact on next generation working couples who are 25 years old and entering the workforce in 2010.  You can also see the effects on current generation working couples who are about 42 years old.  To view projections for those 20 and 40 year old couples, click here.



Decode Why U.S. Economic Problems Could Result In Higher Taxes To Stabilize National Debt By Using the PFI Projector here:

Use the functions of the PFI Projector to learn what your or your children's tab could be to cover the cost if federal spending spirals ever upward.  Use the PFI Projector to adjust the spending levels of various federal programs and see how fiscal restraint could lessen the impact on your future taxes.

Preparing for your family's financial future through virtual financial planning series.   

Frankly, when the PJ Institute was conducting market research on our National Economic Rescue Initiative, we were focused initially on the country's economic problems.  But those who participated in our research told us that they wanted to be more prepared. As a result, we are developing an interesting Internet series for financial planning.

Whether the topics are "How to deal with future inflation" or "Is Uncle Sam broke?" and if so, "What does it mean to me?" -- we will focus on topics that are relevant to today's environment. These will not be just talking head lectures. They are sessions designed to work in conjunction with financial planning applications that are rated highly by Money and Forbes.
