- Y-axis is measured in dollars/second. Yes, that's how much bigger the debts pool becomes bigger every second
- thin green line is a mean value of growth, and it seems pretty constant over time, but not let it fool you, because....
- red line represents the trend (or second derivative of the national debts). Simply put it shows how fast US govt is loading up on debts. And that's what really matters
I will continue publish this chart in a more automatic fashion for non-US readers entertainment.
For the US readers this won't be so entertaining, because essentially the situation will either lead to the currency collapse through inflation, or incredibly high taxes, or the debtor's default on its obligations. Although the first option is more likely than the others, either way means pain, pain and more pain for people who left holding the bag. Unless, they choose otherwise.
