. February 8, 2007 SouthAmerica: Today when I was reading The Financial Times I noticed the following article. Peter G. Peterson's biography says that he is the Chairman and Co-Founder of The Blackstone Group â the private equity group. He is also Chairman of The Council of Foreign Relations, founding Chairman of the Peterson Institute for International Economics (Washington D.C.) and founding President of The Concord Coalition. He has a real heavy-duty background, and among other things - he was named Secretary of Commerce by President Richard Nixon in 1972. Mr. Peterson is the author of several books, including 1) âRunning On Emptyâ 2) âHow Democratic and Republican Parties are Bankrupting Our Future and What Americans Can Do About Itâ 3) âGray Dawn: How the Coming Age Wave Will Transform America and the Worldâ 4) âFacing up: How to Rescue the Economy from Crushing Debt and Restore the American Dreamâ ***** According to The Financial Times story Mr. Peterson want to make a movie similar to Al Goreâs movie on âGlobal Warmingâ â but his movie will be about the pile of US government debt that the United States has been accumulating since the Reagan administration. If Mr. Peterson want to duplicate some of the scenes from Al Goreâs movie â like the scene when Mr. Gore takes a lift and go up and up to show the line going straight up on his chart. In Mr. Petersonâs movie he will need to hire a stuntman and use the Taipei Financial Centre (the world's tallest building since 2004) â to show the level of US government outstanding cumulative debt that has been reached so far â after that Mr. Peterson will need to use Mount Everest in the Himalayas to show the level of cumulative outstanding debt that the United States government is going to reach in the near future. The article said that Mr. Peterson is not sure how to use pictures and charts to have a similar impact as the Al Gore movie. In my opinion that would be a piece of cake to be accomplished when you consider the size and the future impact on each of the major categories of the United States federal government annual budget. I hope he funds such a project ASAP. ***** âPete Peterson's big budget filmâ Published: February 7, 2007 The Financial Times - UK Pete Peterson wants to do for the budget deficit what Al Gore, former US vice-president, did for global warming.
