And lets just not forget the most importand part of money .
"Money has no actual VALUE"
It has the NAME VALUE of what ever you want to compare with it at a certain point in time .
Example.

Today 1 bread costs 1 $.
Tommorow 1 bread costs 2$.

That awkward moment when the dollar bill you're holding as a gag belongs to a country 15 trillion dollars in debt.

no, it belongs to him.. why would his money belong to the state?

(of course, assuming he has paid his taxes)

The currency or bill he is holding does in fact not belong to him.
It belongs to the country of origin.
F.eks it is against the law to destroy currency.

no, the US-Dollar (like most currencies) gets into the economy with a debt on it.

No North Korea is the kid the bully taunts in hopes he'll do something stupid so that he can point the finger at the kid and scream "HE'S THE BAD ONE", This being after he's already destroyed the childs home twice , and now doesn't let him rebuild it and at night he goes around flying his b2 bomber screaming "SWAG!" all night long, now both the bullied kid has a nuclear bomb...

Well first that's the real US debt of 16-17 trillion and the 87 trillion in liabilities are two separate things all together. The first is the real current debt of the US which has been made with real agreements to the paying and borrowing money.

But the the 87 trillion in liabilities are the what the debt might be if the economy is the same and the US carries on spending the way they do, but it also takes into consideration what deals may be put in place (like free medical care, education, possibly more bubbles bursting (like the dot com bubble and possibly a housing bubble in the future)).

So at the end of the day basically it is a possibility that the US will be in that sort of debt but of course you need someone else to give you the money in order to spend it to have the debt.

Also watch this /watch?v=BBZMaAttFkc about the china to US debt relations and also this /watch?v=pG225dz89TY to explain a little bit more about china why because it nice to know more about this problem.

No the housing bubble in the US has not totally burst yet the debt in it is still quite high. watch this on youtube to understand more about it /watch?v=bxLWm66tA also google the List of National Debt by Country on a website called economicshelp, and look at the info at intellectual takeout called "U.S. Mortgage Debt Relative to U.S. GDP and U.S. Housing Wealth".

hope this helps you.

That's only true if he were doing something else at the time. Most of the time, he makes money just existing. Were he walking down the sidewalk, just enjoying life, not on any important calls or anything, he would totally pick up that hundred dollar bill, thus giving him an EXTRA hundred.

That's just 100 extra dollars, it's not like he stops making money to reach down and pick it up.

But comparing one debt to income and how high the payments are gives you a general idea of how much expendable cash they have. Now your comparing ones total wealth to debt. We are arguing semantics. The US GDP Vs. Debt is not the same as having huge debt and no income.

The allies were exhausted, the French army was going through a mutiny, the Russians had internal conflicts (Lenin) to deal with. On the other hand, Austria-Hungry was not able to keep up with the Germans and the Ottomans were on the verge of collapse. Both sides were pretty much at a stalemate until The US joined the allies and provided fresh troops.

No... The Allies would have won WW1 with or without the US, it would have just taken longer.

And I think when he refers to Russia he means WW2, where Russia destroyed the Wehrmacht.

I'm not negating the US's involvement in WW2 I'm just saying what i think he meant.
