The Government Debt Flow Chart

Click For Larger Image:




Keep an eye on the tiny expense called "interest on government debt" as we move forward.  The interest rate on government debt is currently at all time historical lows.

Because the majority of government debt is financed with short term bonds that need to be rolled over, as interest rates rise this expense will mushroom in size.

Think of a large adjustable rate mortgage.
