"US debt is largely fictitious"


The United States is in serious debt but the latest numbers show the US national debt has surpassed $14 trillion. From June, 2010 until the end of the year the US racked up another trillion dollars worth of debt. Economist Michael Hudson says the important thing to realize is the government doesn't borrow money it creates it, the whole issue of whether the US has a debt problem is largely fictitious.
