It would be interesting to study whether private investors and business would
step in to what we now call public broadcasting to continue the programming.
This would enable government to get out of it.We have to be willing
to save everywhere we possibly can. I recently became aware, after attending a
meeting this week, that historically, nations with a national debt to GDP ratio
of 80% fail. A recent example is the Soviet Union. When a nations debt becomes
80% of its GDP, investors become very nervous and cash in their notes, causing
