US Exponential Budget Deficit

Interest-Rates / US Debt Feb 05, 2024 - 10:44 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Interest-Rates

The US Congress Budget Office report projects the US deficit as a percentage of GDP being on an explosive trend trajectory which is as a function of the US government borrowing money to spend on consumption resulting in an ever interest payments and debt mountain. Folks we are looking at an out of control debt spiral, as interest on debt continues to result in the printing of even more new debt.


Whilst all those who state that the US is going to bankrupt in the wake of soaring deficits fail to understand that the US can literally print as many dollars to service the debt, which is what they have been doing the price for which is INFLATION. The US Empire by virtue of it's military loot the world of resources, people (brain drains) and wealth such as via imposing extortionate fines, the likes the $4.2 billion fine on Binance.

However the primary solution the deficit money printing is to monetize the debt to artificially drive long interests down else risk a bond market collapse due to the weight of debt issuance. However the price paid for this is INFLATION as this graph illustrates that there is no end in sight, it's not just for this decade but literally forever! Net Interest Out lays are on the verge of exceeding the primary deficit for consumption and then it just keeps increasing with each passing year all the way to 30 years from now when it is projected to be 6.7% of GDP, twice that of the primary deficit resulting in a runaway debt mountain as the debt to GDP chart illustrates.

And remember this is the UBO projecting debt to GDP rising to 175%, going parabolic, actual reality will be far worse, OVER 200% of GDP. The devaluation of fiat currencies is going to be on EPIC scale, what we have seen so far this decade and yet to see is going to be a mere fraction of what's to come given that debt issuance is out of control. This is what happens when nations debt mountains pass 100% of GDP, interest payments start going parabolic and along with it the debt mountain as new debt needs to be issued to pay the interest on existing debt as the CBO itself projects interest payments rising to 23% of spending from current 10%, pure money printing.

So the last thing you want to be invested in is in CASH or cash like assets such as T-Bills and Bonds, yes there is the QE game that central banks can play to drive interest rates lower but that only works for short-term while before inflation takes off prompting rate hikes to prevent hyperinflation and hence interest rates over the long run should be heading higher, however by how much and when depends on inflation for which I expect waves of inflation over the whole of this decade, which is in fact a STEALTH TAX on workers not just in America but by virtue of the world being a part of the US financial system every worker on the planet has to be not only subject to the inflation stealth tax of their own government but also to the US via myriad of interlinked mechanism such as the Eurodollar market and that western governments and central banks at least play follow the Fed leader, for instance UK rate decisions take place the day after the Fed's so that the Bank of England keeps in step with it's master.
