CIA Report: United States Account Balance – Negative $561 Billion

THANKS OBAMA REGIME!!

Source: Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)

The Central Intelligence Agency often reports interesting tidbits in their online publication, The World Factbook. A reader sent me a link pointing towards the “current account balance” of all the countries in the world. The entry records a country’s net trade in goods and services, plus net earnings from rents, interest, profits, and dividends, and net transfer payments (such as pension funds and worker remittances) to and from the rest of the world during the period specified.

Guess who is in the lead? And guess who it towards the bottom?

China leads the world by a long shot, with Greece, Portugal and other EU countries such as France bringing up the tail-end (hence, the austerity measures, riots, etc). Of course, as we all guessed it; the United States is in dead last place with a total account deficit of around $561 Billion. And these are the 2010 figures. At this rate, we will soon be into the trillions, if not already. Depending on what part of 2010 these figures are from, it could be close to 18 months old.

Where are the American Riots? I suppose the herd hasn’t bothered to look up and realize that the cliff is quickly approaching.

Death of the US Dollar; in T-minus 14 months and counting.

  • If China and Saudi Arabia stop giving foreign aid to us (i.e. our banking system has been financed by China & Saudi since the early 90's); we're collectively screwed. Maybe Israel, with their budget surplus, will bail us out? After all, 1/10th of our budget goes to Israel, so they least that they can do is help bail us out.

  • It's amazing how Obama single handedly ruined this country. He must have been working on this since the day he was born. Since we will have a new GOP President in place after the 2012 election, everything will be fixed by July 2013, so there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

    • @dirtbiker201 learn your history. last president to have a surplus was Clinton but that was by cutting a lot of the military and the us was still in the negative (Cold war spending) Obama Inhertited a mess from previous administrations bot Rep and Dem. The US makes so much money it would not be hard for them to turn this around if they wanted to. Not saying he's doing a great job, but he could a lot of things better!
