    I’ve been looking at financial figures like those mentioned in the federal debt article for a project I’m working on, and my main complaint about a lot of analysts is they don’t show us the whole picture and they don’t give us any understandings that could help resolve the situation.
    Yes, government debt levels are incredible. But so are household debt levels. Amounts invested are also very high. And they all tend to track (or “scale with”) the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) figures. Federal government income is usually a little more than 15% of the GDP. Household debt is about 80% of GDP in the U.S. (mostly mortgages). Government debt is about equal to GDP in the U.S. But there is more money than either of these figures being held as investments. When I recently proposed using part of an investment pool to buy a house, the answer I got was, “no, we want to protect the principal.” They would prefer I use the invested money to collateralize a mortgage, which will cost about 50% of the money borrowed in 30 years, rather than save that expense and convert invested money to cash to buy real estate!
    Taken as a big look, there are pools of assets – relatively liquid assets like investment funds – that “cover” a lot of this debt. Except that: A lot of the assets are held by the wealthy, who make their income by loaning money, and a lot of the debt is held by ordinary people, who make their income by working. The lenders don’t need the amounts they loaned ever returned, really. They just need the income they get from the loans. But the debtors need stable jobs to pay off their loans. The big question is: Why hasn’t the huge pool of invested money resulted in plenty of stable, good-paying jobs? And the apparent answer is: A lot of that money is not being invested in ways that make jobs for ordinary people. As an example, money is being invested in research to develop GMO foods. This is considered part of our “GDP.” But that investment pays the research scientists, who are part of the elite, and benefits the companies who sell the seed. The farmers’ seed costs go up, and the “food” produced makes people sick. So the medical establishment also benefits, through compulsory “health” insurance. Then most doctors don’t tell people to stop eating GMO food. They tell them to take drugs to help with their diabetes. So the drug companies are in on it, too.
    In short, more and more investing is unethical, creating a growing debt burden on people who would like to be more ethical, but are not being told how. This is why you can accuse the current system of being “criminal.” It’s not just a matter of debt levels. Debt CAN fuel growth. If it doesn’t, then there is an ethics situation in society that needs to be handled.
