Neither an x nor a y be

by Matthew Bartlett @ 1:30 pm

I read today that US has a national debt of $7 trillion. I wonder who to. I found a table of NZ national debt through history which appears to show that current NZ debt is approximately $6.5 billion. NZ’s population is approximately 4 million. The US’s population is about 292 million. So US debt per person is about USD24,000, and NZ debt per person is around NZD1,600. Feel so free to check my working.

  1. can we pay it back? I’d pay 2 G to have the whole country debt free if everyone else did too. but then again I am a commie

    ur workings fine i think. but that’d be 7 trillion for the US debt, not 7 billion.
