US Debt

Have you been concerned about the US debt? It’s growing, they tell us. I have wondered. But since I can’t do anything about it, I’ve pretty much ignored it after thinking about it.

Political Calculations has a graph showing the debt vs. GNP.

The national debt is going up but “…an important factor to note is that this trend has continued to the present day as the pace of economic growth has generally been greater than the growth of the nation’s debt.”
