In December 2008, mtvU and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation launched the InDebtEd campaign for college students to raise awareness about the dangers of personal and government financial irresponsibility and promote action to help stop the nation's fiscal crisis. The InDebtEd game is the Peterson Foundation's latest use of popular and new media to educate Americans about the country's growing fiscal challenges.

A new thirty-second InDebtEd animated video is now available to view here.
