    Hover over each country and see how much each country owes in debt right now, with a rolling total.

    55 trillion in global debt... More than half of that debt held by the U.S. and Japan...

    Russia is very respectable in just under a trillion

    We print US dollars... Not global currency... On the global scale, our printing powers are a detriment

    No worries. I have all my gold stuffed beneath my floor. Which will be a huge help when the global apocolypse comes. Gonna throw gold nuggets at any home invaders.
