  • The US debts are direct liabilities of the US government. You can find information on the US debt at the following site. http://www.ustreas.gov/education/faq/markets/national-debt.shtml You can find the US debt figure at the following site. It lists the total US debt as $8,768,614,254,781.88 I believe as of Feb 22. http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/BPDLogin?application=np Another good link but with stale figures is the following brochure printed by the Government Accountability Office. http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d04485sp.pdf In looking at other countries you could look at the country's debt versus their GDP. The CIA factbook shows the US debt at 64.7% of GDP while Canada is 65.4%, the UK is 42.2%, France is 67.4%. https://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/ca.html I don't know how the debt load is trending for each country but most countries have a central bank (like the US Treasury) that publishes reports on the debt load. This site has links to some of the central banks around the world. http://www.bis.org/cbanks.htm
