je cite Jim Willie CB :
"The US is an oversized Third World nation. It ranks poorly relative to other nations in its debt structure and exposure. The United States is in worse condition than almost all nations in the Western world, equally bad as those in Europe currently denigrated in crisis mode. Left to finance its own debt, the USGovt would suffer an immediate cave-in. It has the Printing Pre$$ at its disposal, and a USMilitary to expose to creditors, thus creating an unstable system. The US has an 80% debt/GDP ratio, easily to hit 100% next year. The US wanders and wallows with puffed chest of arrogance, yet besides Greece, the US is worse off than all the PIIGS nations criticized as basket cases so readily. "
