The Debt Clock

In the spirit of its Big Mac Index, The Economist rolled out its Global Debt Clock, which features a running global-public-debt tally. It also provides specific data for different countries, such as public debt per capita and debt as percent of G.D.P., ranging from 1999 to predicted numbers for 2011. Here’s hoping they won’t have to follow the U.S. debt clock in adding more zeroes. [%comments]
