US Closes 2010-2011 Fiscal Year With $14,790,340,328,557.15 In Debt, $95 Billion Jump On The Day, $1.2 Trillion Increase In One Year

Tyler Durden's picture




 

America has now officially closed the books on the 2010-2011 fiscal year. It is only fitting that the last day of the year saw the settlement of all outstanding and recently auctioned off debt. The result: a surge of $95 billion in total government debt overnight, and a fiscal year closing with the absolutely unprecedented $14,790,340,328,557.15 in debt. Net net, in the past fiscal year, the US has issued a total of $1.228 trillion in new debt and has accelerated over time. At a rate of $125 billion per month, total US debt to GDP will pass 100% in just over a month. Incidentally, one may inquire about the benefits of centrally planned fiscal stimulus (cough Solyndra cough): the US economy added over 3$ trillion in debt in the past two years and the stock market is almost back to where it was back then. Perhaps it is about time someone demanded that all those lunatics who say that issuing debt for the sake of growth (and pushing the S&P higher of course) be finally locked away in perpetuity, and the key dropped into the deepest volcano in Mordor.

This is ACTUALLY GOOD for you.    The more debt they create, the more credit that extends beyond existing dollars.    This will make it even more deflationary and dollar purchasing power will increase.    If they can get the debt to 200% of GDP, you dollar will buy probably five times as much as it does today!   I'm personally hoping for 10x GDP, that way I can buy the NY State Thruway for about $50....Don't believe me, just ask Prechter or Shiller

What happens if you use the real numbers of $200+ trillion debt (inc. unfunded liabilities) and the actual GDP of $1.7 trillion?

My calculator doesn't have near enough digits.

FWIW, the claimed GDP of $15 trillion breaks down to ~$60,000 per citizen. I only personally know of only two people producing anywhere near that much in goods or services. I know plenty who are taking out that much with government pensions, SS, Medicare, welfare, food stamps, etc.

Competing currencies? Privately issued money is what we have now, we haven't had government issued money since JFK tried it with silver certificates and he got killed for it. We need money issued by The Peoples Govenment for use by the people. And not just us, every single nation of the world has to do the same. We can complain all we like about this aspect of the problem or that aspect, but until the cause is addressed, all we will end up with is more of the same. I think of it as a thistle plant, we can cut off any one of it's leaves that feed it (corporations/Wall Street) we can take off any one of it's flowers (politicians) we can scrape off it's mean of protection (Gov. agencies/law enforcement) hell we can even cut off the the whole plant at ground level (capitalisim). But it will still grow back, it may look alittle diffrent but it will still be a thistle. Until we kill the root (The Federal Reserve) and plant something better and less vile, until the means by which we conduct commerce among ourselves is free of charge at inception nothing will ever change.

'Printing" has nothing to do with it.    There has never been a FIAT currency that has not experienced inflation and asset deflation in its final death throes

'Printing" has nothing to do with it.    There has never been a FIAT currency that has not experienced inflation and asset deflation in its final death throes

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the crux of the matter.  Yes, cash is king under deflation, until the currency goes right off the cliff. 

We need to print to delay the crash, and they are walking a fine line between not printing and currency destruction through printing to delay the inevitable.  However, the unmistakable truth is that the inevitable crash that is coming IS inevitable, regardless of whether they print.  Once the complete destruction of the system is assured, it doesn't matter if the enviroment is delationary or inflationary, we are going over the cliff, and only the holders of precious metals are hedged.

That's what I have been asking myself for a while now. It's amazing how a mania (eg dot com, housing bubble) can just go on and on, far beyond anything you assumed was possible. The flight into USTs will be like that. Not time to back up the truck on TBT yet, imho. The inevitable is not necessarily imminent.

But whenever that day does arrive, the new question will be whether or not you'll get paid for your perfectly-timed TBT bet, since your derivative counterparty will be the system itself. Seems like you'd be facing another timing dilemma: trying to take profits while there's just enough time for the trade to clear before the whole casino closes for good.

Yes, of course! All of our problems are caused by an acute shortage of scraps of paper with pictures of dead presidents on them. But the presses are running 24/7. We will have no choice but to outsource currency production to China!

And I know how to really beef up our GNP numbers. Every dollar that the Treasury prints should be added into the GDP. After all, if the Gov prints a dollar, hasn't it by definition created something worth one dollar? Doesn't this deserve to be added to our GDP just as much as a 100 billion dollar bridge to nowhere?

How about them off-budget war costs?

That would be like a married man going out on the town and picking up single ladies.  Off-balance sheet, he is married with kids, but we are just dealing with on-balance sheet items out on the town.

1100 on the S&P is a big psychological number to many investors. The fact that it didn't hold today could have

a negative effect on tomorrow's open. I guess the PPT was on the sidelines.

Maybe Big Ben needs to have some damage done in equities in order to reduce the resistance

against firing up the presses again.

@ Van Halen, good observation (only today), green,

I have been called out (junked) on this before, but I think the ONLY chance we have is Ron Paul, and even then the pain will be awful.  ANYONE else will be worse.  And yet it looks like RP does not have a chance with .gov this and .media that arrayed against him.  We should do what we can to get him elected, but should not count on it.  And even if he IS elected, well the mess is still there.

The other thing we can do is protect ourselves by preparing.  If something REALLY BAD happens, well the better protected you are the more likely you will live.  If nothing BAD happens, you do not lose much.

And at the risk of preaching to the choir: Gold, Bitchez!
