United States - Debt StatisticsThe United States of America, a vast country comprised of 51 states, home to Hollywood and Disneyland. A country known for its supersize. From burgers, over trucks right down to their skyscrapers, lining huge, famous skylines.America‘s national debt is no exception to this rule, in fact the monstrosity of this debt, might just top the leader board in terms of size.Looking at 2003 the United States of America bore a mighty burden of 6.731,99 Billion US Dollars. Over the following six years this amount had doubled, giving the States a debt of 12.445,90 Billion US Dollars by 2009. What is astonishing and daunting is the fact, that it has taken the United States merely four years to add a further five Billion US Dollars to the clock of national debt.Instead of stopping the flow of debt adding to the super sized pile, it is growing faster, making it the country with the second highest debt in the entire world.On average every US citizen carries a debt of over 50.000 US Dollars by birthright.The debt clock does not show any signs of slowing, let alone maybe one day turning backwards, which leaves the question open of how much debt one nation, and more importantly, one currency can carry. With these numbers it seems as though the US Dollar must crash. Only time will tell how much it can take and how much longer it can carry the wait of its country‘s debt.
