ECONOMIC COLLAPSE: Think It Can’t Happen Here?



The economic collapse of Greece has led many people into thinking, “Thank goodness we're not the the mess that is the Eurozone.”  Well, don't get too comfortable.  The US isn't in great shape either.

While Greece is in a worse state than the US, we have many of the same sorts of problems they do.  National debt that's greater than our GDP, expanding entitlement programs, low workforce participation….

If one includes future unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare, our real debt exceeds $90 trillion. That’s more than five times our GDP. Greece is still in worse shape — their unfunded liabilities top 875% of GDP — but we’re gaining.
