As we approach the end of the year, it may be a good time to revisit the US debt topic
We last visited the debt level back in Aug 2015.
As of 15 August 2012, the total public debt is 15,944,869,685,894.92.
As of 16 December 2015, the total public debt is 18,788,138,221,346.49.
The public debt of the US has increased and there is no immediate suggestion of any decrease to the rate of accumulation.
