On This Day In 2017

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With the meaningless focus on such distracting noise as daily POMOs, will/won't the Fed taper, how many shorts will the Fed's Markets desk squeeze today, and how massive will the second Fed housing bubble be, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture, namely just where is the debt juggernaut that is the US, heading? Conveniently, the US debt clock has a "time machine" function that extrapolates, at current rates of change, what the key metrics behind the US economic facade will look like.

So in a nutshell, on this day in 2017...

  • Total debt: $22.9 trillion (assuming "normalized" 5% interest means $1.1 trillion in annual interest expense)
  • GDP: $16.9 trillion
    • Debt to GDP ratio: 136%
  • Federal Tax Revenue: $3.3 trillion
  • Federal Spending: $4.1 trillion;  Federal Revenue: $3.3 trillion
    • Federal Budget Deficit
  • US Total Debt: $63.8 trillion (excluding unfunded liabilities)
  • Total National Assets: $167.2 trillion, $508,493 assets per citizen
  • Total Unfunded Liabilities: $152.4 trillion, $1,237,426 liability per taxpayer
  • Consolidated total debt and unfunded liabilities: $216.2 trilllion

And so on.

The constantly updated (and very sad) picture can be found after the jump:

Tyler is right to readjust his The-End-is-Nigh formula
to his blog. Nietzsche lent me a convenient excuse called
decadence, which I conveniently live out for the next hundred years of roman style imperialistic overstretch.

Sorry , no good news and no re-set of things .

The world will change beyond recognition even for any seasoned disparate globalist individual with the "free trade" agreement upon opposing imperialistic blocks.

Never let a crisis go to waste, this too will pass.

Pass congress, legislation, and pass by the voter
for good measure.

  • Consolidated total debt and unfunded liabilities: $216.2 trilllion

That works out to be $665,000 per citizen.  There is no chance that it can be paid down.

BTW, Kotlikoff has total debt and unfunded liabilties at over $240 trillion now.

Gold should be at least $3200 and silver $80 by 2017 if only the Fed would stop manipulating them down.

I think the game is to create a society where there are so few capable of resistance, and who ever care to resist that they can be put down almost immediately with very little effort.

I'm moving for a new job and I drove around the city where it is located. The decline of America was so apparent, you'd have to be Ben Bernanke himself not to see it.

America is moving to a 90/10 society. Either you can afford to be part of the 10% and live where they live, or you'll be living with the 90% sending your kids to schools where only 3% can pass a basic 3rd grade reading test.

But open borders with the promise of amnesty for votes will do that.

As long as the Power Party can stay in Washington and NY eating $250 per plate meals. Who cares if the rest of the country looks like Uganda ravaged by plague.

Remember that MOTOR/VOTER laws allows one "to aver" that they are a citizen. You int have to show proof of citizenship at all. So, we just allowed anybody and everybody in the world to vote in our elections. You don't have to be a citizen anymore, just a resident.

We are truly fucked.

the debt has been moved off balance sheet by 2017. the government is still paying off that debt at low fixed rates. since the deficit is under control there aren't any real concerns. bernankes replacement announced 2% deflation targets, in order to shrink the money supply to a workable level. the low fixed rates present a savings relative to new higher rates, yes higher interest rates, with deflation equals no economic growth, who cares? no more extend no more pretend, we're just trying crash land this economy with minimal damage.

It comes down to when the rest of the world gets terminally fed up (is unable) to absorb/import the US debt via the Ponzi that has become the USD.

Toward that end -- to postpone the inevitable -- TPTB will keep messing with the ability and resolve of the rest of the world and its pivotal players.  All is fair in fiat-love and war.  And the world will see plenty of both.

I would like it if someone would, on 1 Jan of every year, take a snap shot of the Debt Clock time machine for the next ten years, and track the accuracy of the projections.  The US national debt will be at least $25T due to the bump of the inevitable recession we are entering, and we may not exit until after the collapse.

 

BTW:  I assume these are all Then Year projections, not Base Year 2013.

This seems appropriate:

Paul Krugman and John Maynard Keynes were out for a walk and they came upon a pile of fresh dog poop. Keynes, feeling mischievous, offered Krugman $25,000 if he would eat it. Krugman, being a trifle low on cash, decided to take him up on the offer and ate the poop. Then they walked on.

A little while later, Krugman, feeling rather ill and annoyed at Keynes for the cruel trick, decided to turn the tables on him, and when they passed another pile of dog poop offered Keynes his $25,000 back if he would eat it. Feeling rather foolish at having wasted all that money and anxious to have it back, Keynes complied.

As they walked on, Krugman remarked to Keynes, 'You know, neither of us is any richer, and we've both eaten dog poop.' 'Yes' replied Keynes, 'but we've increased the GDP by $50,000.'

Brotherman,

My wife's grandmother came from Mexico illegally. Her son joined the USArmy, became a citizen and then passed the Q-Course to become a highly respected and successful special forces sergeant. He then graduated with honors from University of Southern California, so that he could get his commission. Retired as a colonel. Started his own successful business. My wife's grandmother came here to become an American. Only English would be spoken in the house. ALL of her children are successful AMERICAN citizens and are truly a joy to be with, especially when drinking a cerveza with the patriarch of the family.

What I was referring to in my earlier post was not that most folks coming here only want to suck off the system. That was not what I was inferring.

My position is that the crafters/writers of these laws (including certain select judges) intent is to create a whole class of political slaves (heard that term first here - political slaves and political slavery) indentured to a political class.

What is happening through this diversity non-sense is the straight up Balkanization of the US. and it is happening NOW...gated communities, militarization of the police forces, urban center blight, stratification politically and economically of the citizens and residents of this land.

Most of the folks coming here from south of he border have their allegiance to NARCO-MILITIAS, and have never had a taste of freedom and never will. They bring the baggage of their culture and language and have NO PLANS TO ASSIMILATE into the American culture.

Think ASLAN.

Not ALL of the folks coming here have the best interests of the host nation that they are residing in. There are a large portion that are willing to promote the destruction of this country couched in altruistic words.

How do you deport 11million illegals?
Easy. One at a time.

Do you folks who are here illegally have the same rights as a citizen of this country?

Debt-per-citizen vs dept-per-taxpayer, this very minute.

Taxpayers are screwed.

Wait! I thought all we had to do was pass Paul Ryan's budget / 10 year plan and everything would be hunky dory.

Oh, yeah that's right even HE projected with his own idiotic plan a 20+trillion debt. The idea that voting for one delusional idiot over another or that Obama is in or out of office are both complete wastes of energy. No one in Washington has the balls to do what needs to be done and no in the country will face the truth that it is mathmatically OVER.

We can't pay any more pensioners, soc sec, welfare, mortgage deduction, child credit, earned income credit, farm subsidies, ethanol goodies, solar loans, pell grants, WIC, medicaid, medicare, scrip drug benefit, food stamps, or any other gravy train .gov hair brained scam any longer. The money isn't there. The world owes you nothing.

I won't even go into the farce known as "defense".

Oh, you "paid in"? TOO FUCKING BAD. You are also the assholes that fucked it all up so I have no sympathy for you juts like I have no sympathy for all the self-righteous "voters" that are complicit in all this. I "paid in" too. I HAD TO GET A FUCKING JOB AS A TEENAGER TO PAY MY FUCKING TAX BILL (FICA) WHICH TOOK %15 CAUSE I WAS "SELF-EMPLOYED". I've been getting robbed every year since.

Legalise the whole damn country of Mexico and throw in all of Central America just for fun and every native born asshole will line up in 2016 and vote for Chris Christie, Billary, or whovever they trot out and it will make no difference what so ever.

First priority should be the wholesale elimination of Soc Sec. and Medicare. You want a taper that will matter. Start there. Taper that ponzi scheme until it is over. That means NO NEW ENROLEES and everyone else gets bought out (I'll take mine in silver bars please, gold would be okay as well) or otherwise paid to term.

Assuming 5% interest rates. That's an optimistic assumption, if current policy continues. This time is not different.

The fall of failed empires comes with ruined currency, high debt, public bankruptcy ... thanks to the same old rootless cosmopolitan international financiers, and their new fangled thing zionism, founded in the late 18th century by the old hofjuden of the vatican, monarchies, the feudalists who like monopoly, not Republics, nor patriots.

It is overdue for American jews to stand with the Republic their ancestors co-founded, and reject this nazionism...or go off to the showers once more, led by the nazionists who funded Hitler, and Lenin.

George Washington thanked the rabbis of Rhode Island for their support in founding the USA. It is a very great pity that American jews are misled by zionism.

Hubris precedes the ruin of money, and nation.
