U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time
U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time.
NeilS — So I have seen this site before, but didn’t really pay much attention to all the details. There are many interesting facts hidden throughout the links of this site. Notice on the top you can view world debt clocks and see their rates of change in comparison to each other. Also, the bottom shows energy consumption, gold holdings and a slew of other interesting facts about a host of countries. A few things that I have noticed is that the US has gold holdings that are double the next biggest (Germany) and triple the IMF. Not to mention the US holds almost 8 times more gold than China.
Also of note is energy consumption. It certainly seems that China is on track to surpass the U.S. very very soon. Hope you find many interesting stats in here and post them in the comments!
