That explains why I always seem to hear things on my radio that other people don't ;-)

Comment Re:St. Reagan (Score 1) 788

What you speak of is a debt per assets ratio. We are quite good compared to the rest of the world I heard we are about 90 GDP to Debt, I was told it was more like 60 when I asked a family member who is an expert in this area so my numbers could be off. In comparison Japan is 180! Greece was close to 140 when all hell broke loose.

Which part of GDP is available to pay the debt? Without income (i.e. taxes) government has no means to pay anything. So you should relate GDP*(average tax rate) to Debt. See what happens to your ranking then.
