Total US Debt

Bulltards and serial bottom callers beware, just a little bit more debt needs to get annihilated here…

via Credit Writedowns: Total US Debt

Back in May, I showed you a chart of Total US Debt which demonstrated that the United States was an increasingly indebted country. This chart was for all domestic debt minus financials and it topped out at about 225% of GDP.

Below is the same chart for the U.S., except this time I have added domestic financial and foreign debt, so it represents all debt outstanding in the United States.

The US Debt to GDP ratio starts out just below 125% in 1952 and rises steadily to an enormous 333.8% by 2008. Needless to say, this is one major problem hampering the deleveraging we are now seeing in the financial sector.

By the way, if you are wondering what the debt total for Q1 2008 was in dollars, it was $47.4 trillion.

Hi. Love your posts. Just wanted to point out that the bull/bear ratio has risen materially in the last couple of days (from practically zero).

You can feel it in the market too.

I notice the biggest gains in the Chart came during Rep. Admins. that jacked up War Department spending. Not a productive investment IMO.

Examine the soles of your shoes. Note where UGG Mini wear has occurred. Most people seem to be amazed that their shoes wear at the rear outer corner.

Most people walk and run with their feet slightly rotated from center. Runners, however, also have what is called a narrow base Mini uggs of gait. A narrow base of gait means that the feet contact close to the midline of your body. This creates additional varus (tilting in) of the limb.
