ABSTRACT
This article reports that U.S. comptroller general David M. Walker flatly declares that the United States' fiscal profligacy could lead the country down the path of every other great republic, none of which has lasted more than 300 years. Walker is better called a "budget crusader," because the game is not over and he is working to help policymakers stop the U.S. government from toppling into the fiscal abyss. It remains to be seen whether U.S. President George W. Bush will decide to worry about the rising tides of deficit and debt.
