Presenting The "Evil Empire's" Projected Debt/GDP

Tyler Durden's picture

Remember how ole' Ronnie bankrupted the Evil Empire by forcing them to build ever more and more nukes, leading to the collapse of the communist empire and unleashing a whole lot of upscale Wall Street prostitution rings in the process? Maybe the CIA can do the same back home, because if the Russian "post default" debt/GDP is any indication perhaps it is time Regan's ghost gave the order to bankrupt none other than the "good empire": the good old US of A. Here is Russian debt/GDP, based on CIA historical data and IMF projections. No "Kolhoz of 6" in Moscow any time soon.

Oh, and, for those asking, here is US debt/GDP.
