The National Debt--Time to Collect?

Learners discuss money they may receive from their parents for birthdays, holidays, allowance or from working. They pretend to have received $20.00 and must allocate funds to buy specified items. Students further pretend that their income will be reduced by 10%. They re-calculate their original budget. Learners research the national debt and possible ways to pay it off. They write individual proposals for balancing the budget.
