ABSTRACT
The article looks at the rising public debt carried by different countries as a result of economic stimulus efforts. An exploration of which countries are at greatest risk from the growing debt follows. Japan's debt is an internal problem because it is owned by pensioners. European Union debt, including Italy, Germany, and France, is normal and their politics are designed to cope with it. The U.S. and Great Britain face the most trouble due to rapidly rising debt from the 2009 economic crisis.
