As of 22 Jan 2008 the national debt stood at $9.19 trillion.

Given the estimated population of the United States of 304,154,916, each citizen's share of this debt is $30,230.06 or about $121,000 for each family of four.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of $3.14 billion per day since September 30, 2005! That is about $300 per month for each American. Something will have to give, and soon. The Stock Market's collapse at this updating, is at least a harbinger of things to come, even though sectors of the economy are in great shape.

The trade balance is defined by:

Savings - Investments = Exports - Imports.


Trade Deficit $ - Millions (US Census Bureau)

2003 532,351
2004 650,929
2005 750,000 [Projected]

America is on an unprecedented spending spree, using borrowed money!
