Publishers Weekly on Full Faith & Credit

Publisher's Weekly talks to Abbeville publisher Robert Abrams about the upcoming political title Full Faith & Credit: The National Debt, Taxes, Spending and the Bankrutping of America – a very unusual title for the illustrated book publisher.

“As a publisher and concerned citizen, I haven’t seen this conversation [about the national debt] raised as it should be by the press,” Abrams said. “I do a lot of books for narrow markets. I hope this book finds a bigger one. The issues are critical to the country.”

Full Faith & Credit

The National Debt, Spending, Taxes, and the Bankrupting of America

What is the national debt? Who loses from it? Who profits from it? Why is it a greater threat to America than international terrorism? In direct, non-partisan language, this book follows the money and finds the answers.

Conservative, Liberal, Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Socialist... Each has a laundry list for America on which the slow-motion cataclysm of unsustainable national debt is but a lonely bullet point among dozens of others. Full Faith and Credit zooms in on that point, liberates it from partisan programs and political orientations, expands it, explores it, and explains it.

The book examines key dimensions of our national life—from a military-industrial complex more menacing than even Eisenhower could have imagined to a Tower of Babel tax code that covertly translates taxes into secret spending. With the aim of converting bystanders into informed advocates of change, Full Faith and Credit is rich with eye-opening data, surprising case studies, and you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up examples:

  • For every official the United States public has elected, its government supports 5,000 unelected employees.
  • $1 billion is the cost to destroy $16 billion in ammunition unneeded by the U.S. military.
  • $20,973,890,000 is the total taxpayer cost to the Treasury of gambling losses deducted by millionaires.

More timely than ever, Full Faith and Credit locates the tipping point of the $18.8 trillion national debt crisis and offers new ideas on how to fix it.
