National Debt Crisis

Post by tvubpwcisla » Fri Nov 15, 2019 8:37 am

Does anyone here on the forum have concerns about our (US) National Debt?

Could that be the next Black Swan event that triggers the global economy into a recession?

1) It is not a problem.

2) It is not the biggest elephants in the room. The number is very small as compared to the REAL problem. If you think this is a problem, you are misguided.

My only concern is whether this thread will get locked before my post hits.

If readers can't do anything with the content of a topic other than argue about it, it does not belong here. Examples include:
US or world economic, political, tax, health care and climate policies
conspiracy theories of any type
discussions of the crimes, shortcomings or stupidity of other people, whether they be political figures, celebrities, CEOs, Fed chairmen, subprime mortgage borrowers, lottery winners, federal "bailout" recipients, poor people, rich people, etc. Of course, you are welcome to talk about the stupid financial things you have done.
