No one gonna make you pay. That's the point. You are on a tight edge and China, with its US treasury bonds, can push you down with just a slight breath. Right now they don't want to make you fall, coz it serve their interest, but I'm sorry to tell you, the time of John Connally is gone. And now China owns you.

Don't worry man, chineses wages are quickly rising each year. Their domestic consumption is increasing at tremendous speed too. Soon they'll be able to run their economy without exporting so much
2018-04-23 09:57
And when the prices of their exports rise with their wages and they export less we will have more products made at home. So your point?

Not only broke but of course in debt beyond anyone's wildest imagination. It's so confusing???????? What is the thematic explanation being doled out by the ministries of propaganda? In the US the brainwash is too low taxes and military spending=current insane financial situation. Even though if the US had every dollar back from every war it would still largely be in the same situation. Besides all the taxes confiscating more of the US GDP than ever. The brainwash is strong.

2nd world war: you did jack shit because the policy of the US was not to intervene. yet if you were under attack you had to prepare, that boosted the hell out of your production. and dont tell me that since then 0 missiles/bullets/aircraft/submarines were made. the thing why US is rich and all us the European countries are poor is because mainly we dont keep the money. you produce something, money stays in the company, people are paid, taxes are paid. that money recycles in the US. + US has the second largest export economy in the world. we small european countries build aparments buildings by german companies, we drive german volkswagen, eat foreign vegetables, we ship using danish companies. money just doesnt stay here

2018-04-22 20:34
National debt isn't like personal debt. The more debt your economy can sustain the more powerful it is and that's why United States has the most powerful economy in the world, they can keep spending but not tipping over. This is also why China is on the rise atm, they are spending like it's no ones business, investing in their own country and other countries around the world, but they can sustain their national debt. You have to remember a country is more than just a country it's also a business, some leaders run their business very well and some don't. Give an example as well here let's say you have a credit card, every month you are paying the minimum (which is interest), your debt isn't going down but your building your credit, your line of credit is becoming more powerful even though your debt is remaining the same since you are only paying off the interest on your debt.
2018-04-23 02:43
National debt is implied higher future taxation beyond crowding out private debt. Nothing tips over until it does.
2018-04-23 02:53
OFC it could happen but the countries that have this situations have already thought ahead and made precautions to avoid it from ever happening whether that be by making the citizens pay for it or other means like getting control in certain parts of the world and having a dependency.

First of all you are using totally random words, like, there isnt even an official definition for "poverty" (At least not in germany) so that isnt very meaningful. Then you can't compare the living conditions just by some numbers regarding the living place and cars. There are way too many other factors that matter.

Read post #2 besides US poverty lives better than working class Euro. It's defined as bottom 1/6th economically regardless in the US. Bottom 1/6th in US on avg own a 3br 1.5 ba home and 1.5 cars- or live better than working Euros. Oh but you can't use this or that and compare this or that! Why is most of Europe broke for the 342nd time?

You know that median income is way more accurate than average? Median US income is probably way lower than average. Don't know what you want to tell me by your equation.
2018-04-23 00:17
Only if a big variance exists. Which is of course not the case with welfare benefits in the US but is the case with incomes just about anywhere. post #104=we're not broke! Still waiting-why is most of Europe paying 10-25% of it's budgets towards interest and not your schooling for example? Why has all of this debt accumulated? Think you'll get to that in this lifetime.

Western and Northern Europe have better standard of living than USA. Eastern Europe is poor mostly because of communism, wars, Ottoman and Russian rule. Also debt means nothing in nowadays world as my country Bulgaria has one of the lowest debts in Europe 26% of GDP yet we are still poor compared to Western countries that have about 100% of GDP
2018-04-22 23:31
US poverty=990 sq ft 3br 2 ba home, 1.5 cars. Western and Northern Euro working class=660 sq ft, .5 cars. That better standard of living again! and actually debt means a lot as historically it reflects future implied taxation and in the current 10-25% of these budgets are going towards interest and not current governance.

Yeah I know that, it's pretty hard to define poverty, but it is still important to differentiate between different forms of poverty. Because somebody living in the bottom of 1/6 of a developed country can't be compared to somebody earning less than 1$ in some african country.
2018-04-23 00:14
and yet that is exactly what happens- have the guy above saying 20% of US children are starving=ludicrous. meanwhile the upper half of that bottom 1/6th in the US has an incredible standard of living to be called poverty stricken. beyond draining the finances of too many countries to count- it is insulting to anyone who actually as really suffered from poverty.
