As US Closes June With $15,856,367,214,324.44 In Federal Debt, US Debt/GDP Hits Post WWII High Of 101.5%

Last week's bond auctions have finally settled and the numbers are in. As of the last day of June, the US had a record $15,856,367,214,324.44 in debt, a $75 billion increase overnight, and a post World-War II high Federal debt/GDP ratio of 101.5%.* That is all.

* Assuming GDP in Q2 grew at a 1% sequential rate, which in light of the global economic contraction, is quite generous.
