    that kinda blows. i mean seriously, who the fuck wastes around 6 trillion dollars on killing random people on the other side of the world when the country cant even take care of its own citizens..

    that would be nice amount of food for those who are poor imo.
    I don't deny that it is. I favor drastically reducing the defense budget and war expenditures. But I want it to be clear that it would not even be necessary to reduce our spending to free up money for stronger social programs.

    The USA's debt as a percentage of its GDP is far from the highest in the world and not even the highest it's ever been, and that's what matters. The actual point where such debt becomes a problem isn't even know. Countries have gone decades with high debt to GDP ratios than us yet still managing to get out of it with no calamities.

    On top of that, as I said, the USA doesn't even have a deficit. If things were to keep going as they are now forever, the USA would have no debt in a few decades.

    I wonder how that graph would look if it were adjusted for inflation, population growth, and GDP per capita.

    Especially inflation. The value of the dollar has changed quite a bit since the 1970s.

    I know they tried really to whip inflation, but it doesn't appear to have been successful, even with all those buttons they made.

    Well, nobody knows anything about it because you posted a photo of a graph with no source or references.

    Keep loosing more factories and exporting all the jobs to china and voila, your dept to gdp will skyrocked like hell. also looking at GDP per capita alone isnt a very good idea if you take into consideration the fact that USA has very high difference on incomes between the poor and the rich..
