University of Virginia graduate students are using social media to help people understand the national debt. One class in the Darden School of Business has created a 10-minute YouTube video breaking down the issue.

Students of the Institute for Business in Society, a branch of UVA's Darden School, put it all into laymen's terms for anyone to understand. The animated video was funded by a grant from the Jefferson Trust, an initiative of the UVA Alumni Association.

"When you look at an issue like the national debt, it has far-reaching implications, across education, across healthcare, across a number of social and business sectors,” said Dean Krehmeyer, executive director.

The students know these implications will impact them in the future, and want to help everyone get educated about the problems now.
