.. this includes contingent liabilities such as social security, government pensions and Medicare. The economy is 2-3 times more debt-dependent - with at least $29 Trillion DEBT EXCESS - - compared to the 1950-1970s! $175,154 per man, woman and child - or $700,616 per family of 4!
80% ($42 trillion) of today's debt was created since 1990.
"Foreign interests have more control over the US economy than Americans, leaving the country in a state that is financially imprudent. More and more of our debt is held by foreign countries – some of which are our allies and some are not. The huge holdings of American government debt by countries such as China and Saudi Arabia could leave a powerful financial weapon in the hands of countries that may be hostile to US corporate and diplomatic interests.” David Walker, the US comptroller general. 23 July 2007
"In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. The abandonment of the gold standard made it possible for welfare statists to use the banking system as a means to an unlimited expansion of credit (debt creation)" - Alan Greenspan (#8), 1966
Rate of Personal Saving Plunges 114% - a record low in world history - $1.1 trillion missing

If families have less inflation-adjusted income, despite more mothers working, then family personal savings must suffer as a consequence - unless, of course, families reduce their consumption. But, families increased consumption spending and, to cover this, they reduced savings to historic lows and increased household debt to historic highs. Dangerous Trend !!!

Governments will often try to disguise the true rate of inflation through a variety of techniques. These can include the following:

* Outright lying in official statistics such as money supply, inflation or reserves.
* Suppression of publication of money supply statistics, or inflation indices.
* Price and wage controls.
* Forced savings schemes, designed to suck up excess liquidity. These savings schemes may be described as pensions schemes, emergency funds, war funds, or something similar.
* Adjusting the components of the Consumer price index, to remove those items whose prices are rising the fastest.
None of these actions address the root causes of inflation, and in fact, if discovered, tend to further undermine trust in the currency" ( Jim Sinclair)


  1. Is this gross debt or net debt?

    ie are you double counting? (or triple/quadruple/etc counting)

    My guess is that you have no idea, do you? Spreading ignorant statistic doesn't make you part of the solution - it makes you part of the problem.

  2. Whoever you are, you need to get your facts straight before you post your articles. Youtube "David Walker" (former Comptroller General from 1998-2008) and watch some of his videos. We are around 56 Trillion in debt and it DOES include social security and medicare. If you go into you can also watch a 30 minute video hosted by David Walker talking about the national debt and its history.

  3. its black and white total american debt = 53 trillion..debt is debt. Its owed and has to be paid back. Thats the problem with you blind ignorant news viewing people. The Government feeds you a line and you believe them. HAVE YOU READ THE BOLD LETTERS?

  4. That does include social security and medicare.

  5. Has anyone read the article? It states that CLEARLY
