Can You Pass This Fiscal IQ Quiz?

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Comeback America Initiative has developed a “Fiscal IQ Quiz” which anyone can take to test their understanding of the federal government’s serious financial condition and bleak fiscal outlook.

The quiz includes two types of questions: ones that test knowledge of fiscal facts (fiscal knowledge), and others that will gauge whether the test taker’s views about potential solutions are realistic as compared to those of a number of objective federal budget experts (fiscal wisdom).

After completing the five minute and 30-question quiz, participants are provided two scores as well as an overall IQ score. For any question answered incorrectly, the test taker will receive information explaining why they were wrong.

David M. Walker, Founder and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative and former Comptroller General of the United States, conceived the quiz as a way to engage the public on issues that must be addressed sooner rather than later.

Walker and his organization believe that, once American voters fully understand the facts and the stakes, they will be able to pressure Congress to finally act.
