What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words “fiscal responsibility?” It’s probably some old guy droning on like Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Oddly enough, Ben Stein actually has been writing on such a topic lately. But rarely do you hear young people getting worked up about deficits and national debt. Though if you think about it, Ben Stein probably won’t be around anymore when the time comes to pay the bill. You will. I’m extremely worried about how the economic policies of today are going to affect our generation’s career choices over the next 20 to 30 years. That’s why some recent television advertisements for a website called BankruptingAmerica.org have caught my attention. The site is run by a Virginia based non-profit organization called Public Notice, which identifies itself as “dedicated to providing facts and insight on the economy and how government policy affects Americans’ financial well-being.”

Start Working So You Can Someone Else’s Debt

Public Notice is quite obviously a politically motivated organization, and it’s unclear where they get their backing from. I wasn’t able to find much background information on the organization, but here are the executive director’s Twitter and LinkedIn profiles. You’ll probably want to do some more research on your own, and it will likely you lead you to some excellent viral content that they’ve developed. There’s the television ad that caught my attention:

And there’s also a video called “REAL or FAKE: Can you tell which of these government spending projects are real or fake?”:

The organization certainly seems to be using social media in an effective way, which is good because they are an awareness focused organization. If you care about our nation’s debt as much as I do, and you are all about new media, then you should check out Public Notice’s Internships page. Right now they’re offering three paid internships—one each in New Media, Policy Research, and Press. Take a look at the full descriptions to see if you’re a fit.
