This amount is not that large (I presume that it is in US dollars). My own 
country Australia has a debt of about AUS$500 billion. Our GDP is about 
AUS$420 Billion.

Our government has no debt, but the rest of the debt is in private hands of 
our wonderful consuming citizens. This will result in a huge personal 
crisis when the economy finally falters. Bookmark this page. The milkbar 
told you so!
