    Major accounting curriculum change recommendations have been made by the recent Albrecht and Sack study (2000). Professors Albrecht and Sack assert that the accounting profession has experienced significant changes in the last decade. One of their recommendations was that students understand “real-world” business better. Students can gain this knowledge as professors describe their own experiences or review case studies, but the topics discussed in the recent I.O.U.S.A. book and movie are important to every student. The purpose of this proposal is to share the major deficits discussed in I.O.U.S.A.: leadership deficits, trade deficits, entitlement deficits, and the national debt. The “real-world” challenges facing all Americans will be discussed and suggestions for integrating the topics into the curriculum will be offered.
