The economy is a very confusing thing, and apparently it had a bit of a hiccup in 2006 with "The Great Recession", which sounds like the world's economy wanted to break-up with us, but didn't want to have to move out of our apartment just yet so it had to "Recede" to find itself...
Brazil's economy is the largest in Latin America. The country makes its money through it's agriculture and tourism. It's also home to Embraer, which is the third largest producer of civilian aircraft, right behind Airbus and Boeing.
Sweden's economy is doing really well at the moment. In fact, the country currently sits as the seventh-richest country in the world, as far their GDP (gross domestic product) goes.
Did you know that there was more to Australia than just kangaroos, boomerangs, shrimp on the barbie and deadly animals hiding in every single corner?
Lo Stivaale, "The Boot". The third most populous EU state, the birthplace of the Renaissance, and home to the ruins of the once great Roman civilization.
This country is TINY. It's land-locked, in between Belgium, Germany, and France. The whole thing is about the size of Rhode Island.
Je ne parle pas français. Je vais donc rester avec l'anglais. France is a country with a rich heritage and culture, defined by it's romantic tendencies.
Nippon, the small island country next to Asia. It kept up a pretty strict policy of isolation from the rest of the world until 1853 when the U.S. sent it's navy to... convice the Japanese to open up their borders, which they did.
Hey, guess what? Brexit didn't kill the U.K... In fact, they're doing just fine. Good for them. Everyone was expecting Britain to mostly fall apart after leaving the EU, but those stubborn British buggers proved they were more than a match for what was to come.
European Union: $13,050,000,000,000
USA! USA! USA!
The U.S of A. A federal republic (not a democracy, btw. We're a republic) that spans a large portion of the globe, well past the North American continent. We own islands in the Pacific and the Caribbean. We're the third most populous nation in the world, with over 324 million people.
the Brexit HAS NOT EVEN HAPPENED YET??? and IF OU ALREADY DO A VIDEO ABOUT DEBT then use numbers that are SAYING SOMETHING...you just mixed together 3000 different things and took debt in real numbers but if I earn a million dollars and have 300k debt that's not debt FOR A COUNTRY...debt is the amount of money that exceeds the GDP and cant be repaid even if the country would want to...see Greece...or African countries and the USA...which has a higher debt than GDP and therefore has lost its AAA rating...
so??? you went in numbers here not % of GDP right??? cause that's nothing in australia....sweden those are a few of the lowest debt AT ALL...43% 33% LUXENBOURGH????is one of the richest countries and debtwise one of the least indebted... that nothing...Greece had 189% of its gdp meaning even taking A WHOLE YEAR of paying EVERYTHING they get would be not enough...Sweden though wouldn't even have to pay 4 months...
If the banks are bankrupt and has no money and the governments have to bail them out, effectively browning money from the very bankrupt banks and transfer the burden to new unborn babies to give it to the banks so that they will not sink, they call it it a bailout, so if the bank has no money, the government indebted as we see, and have no money, the question is to whom the world indebted to, and from where this money comes if all bankrupt, Mars that’s why we invading it.
Japan Still Beating China on One Score: World’s Top Creditor
May 21, 2015, 10:07 PM PDT Updated on May 22, 2015, 12:48 AM PDT
Japan’s foreign investments and assets climbed to a record in 2014, keeping it in front of China and Germany as the world’s top creditor nation.
China has the most powerful military and its an international creditor. This is because when you have a strong military people owe you money. Not the other way around. Its like the mob. The mob or loan sharks. They have the hired muscles and guns. So they get other people into debt.
There is a way for everyone who owes debt to someone to use our native Icelandic Independence Party to pay the debts. This party has enough money to pay all the world´s debts independently of which country has a debt. Charge the party!All of you!
And this is the dirty secret that they won't tell you about the so called rich prosperous nations. What do they all have in common ? Massive amounts of debt. They just borrow and borrow and borrow to give the appearance to the rest of the world that they are extremely wealthy. It's all a facade.
Why is he calling Japan a tiny country? 10/214 by population. 3/214 by GDP. 127 million people is not small. Russia has 144m people, is it small? If you rebutt that Russia is geographically large then... Iceland should be a borderline great power
Having the world’s most powerful military (a military that is made to fight wars with one arm tied behind its back and carry out peace missions that no military is supposed to do) does take the pressure of having its MASSIVE unsustainable DEBT. It’s kind knocking on your neighbor’s door to demand your “lawnmower” back... knowing full well that IF he was in a bad mood he could pound your brains into the pavement... “I’ll just mow the grass some other time”
totally wrong figures... Germany has 2.9 Trillion not 6 Trillion as this condescending trollop says.... and GDP is never proven to be correct especially in the way it is calculated and reported... mostly contrived ... totally bad reporting ... or should I say a LIE
all countries have national bebt from at least 20 percent to 250 percent including china. So the question is to whom they owe all money to. No one can lend money to other when they are in debt them-self. So who is supposed to collect all these money.
Lol if you say the uk has 400% external dept ..yes thats true but at the same time other countries owe the uk nearly as much ..and than you talk about the 19 Billion the us is in dept and yes i mean billion because if you are to dumb to count i will explain it
one 1 ten 10 hundred 100 thousand 1000 ten-thousand 10000 hundred thousand 100.000 million 1.000.000 Milliarde 1.000.000.000 now you say thats a billion but a billion is 1.000.000.000.000 than you say thats a trillion but that would be 1.(000.000) (000.000)(000.000) Long and short scales i know but i just call you to stupid to count ..the now 21 billion us dept is not the externail dep that would mean that the uk has 2.5 billon or 90% dept not 400 and the external dept is now around 240% don't mix this stuff up .
according to US debt clock including unfunded liabilities the real debt of america is over 112 trillions not 19 , you aren`t doing well , america is faking bilance sheets since the end of Gold Standard , You are Scammers .
Well the joke of the video was "America has the best military in the world". Seriously dude? This powerful military is stuck in rocks of afghanistan for 16 years and couldn't defeat a few thousands of taliban.
Jayesper President Andrew Jackson was the last president who completely got our country out of debt. His motto was "I killed the bankers." Since then, Central banks took over. The issue of money should reside with the people, and until that happens, the bankers will control everything.
that's useless numbers??? that's total bullshit if you earn 1000000 dollars and owe 300000 dollars would you call that debt??....compared to earning 10000 dollars and a debt of 20000 dollars??? this list and this video is RIDICULOUS.
Some like greece to world bank, pakistan to IMF etc. They asked bail out. People do not know economics. Example Japan has huge debt but it is mostly to japanese people. Japanese people have millions with no loans. So Japan debt not important. Also Japan has huge investments abroad and that is why they are great donors.
We would have won the war if France didn't help us
Our people was stronger ( better diet and more baby's were surviving) and had more people
Britain was the strongest army at the time yes but they didn't know how to fight guerrilla warfare
No he said 2 trillion external debt and that is just a portion of the total debt as most UK debt is held by UK bond holding companies like the bank of england and and many others just as with the US debt.
Sunil Ipe Pretty much, Japan is still a net creditor, arguably the largest. But it's close with the PRC. Both nations hoard credit. Japan is ten times smaller though, so that's something. Sorry PRC, ROK, DPRK and even some Dixie's, but Japan isn't sinking anytime soon
People do not know economics. Example Japan has huge debt but it is mostly to japanese people. Japanese people have millions with no loans. So Japan debt not important. Also Japan has huge investments abroad and that is why they are great donors.
this site calculates the national debt of china, china also has much more company debt. The debt of government owned companies and individual debt. combined is around 30 trillion USD i heard
I can't even imagine where you pulled that number from but china has $1.56 trillion debt which is 13% of it's GDP (Lowest amongst the large economies).
fake money = fake debt, what are the banksters going to do if the entire country defaults? It's not like they borrowed us their own money...they made it out of thin air. Don't tell me they own the military and loose them on us.
Pakistan asking bail out as it is poor. People do not know economics. Example Japan has huge debt but it is mostly to japanese people. Japanese people have millions with no loans. So Japan debt not important. Also Japan has huge investments abroad and that is why they are great donors.
Example pakistan has loan from china. Greece from world bank. Both asked bail out. People do not know economics. Example Japan has huge debt but it is mostly to japanese people. Japanese people have millions with no loans. So Japan debt not important. Also Japan has huge investments abroad and that is why they are great donors.
Okay, as a swiss citizen (and it has probably already been mentioned) I just want to correct (probably again): we don't have a debt of 1'500 billion. That would be almost three times our GDP... The federal office for statistics indicates our debt level is around 220 billions (confederation, cantons, communes and insurances all together) or around 35% of GDP.
The amount of 1'500 billions seems to come from Wikipédia for some weird reason and I can't find the actual source. It's just very weird and simply doesn't make sense.
