You are forgetting Spaceship One, Armadillo Aerospace, the rich people visiting the ISS, and even the guys from Denmark trying to reach orbit with a homemade rocket. People like you and me could be flying into LEO within our lifetimes. Isn't that worth mentioning?

I don't think they do this to resolve debt, but because due to inflation, they would otherwise end up paying $20,000 for a soda, which would be something very impractical to do even with $100 bills. At some point they have to convert their currency to something manageable again and as far as I know, the debt is also converted.
