Is the proverbial sh*t beginning to finally hit the fan?

Hedgeye Macro/Financials analyst Josh Steiner is more than a little knowledgeable on this important topic. He discussed the rapidly ballooning, unsustainable level of US debt with Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough this morning on The Call @ Hedgeye.

The debt-to-GDP ratio is simply a measure of a country's national debt compared to its gross domestic product (GDP). It indicates how much the country owes, relative to the size of its economy.

For half a century, the US debt-to-GDP ratio was within a range of 20% to 45%. However, in the few years since COVID, that ratio has skyrocketed to 100%. Making matters worse, it is (conservatively) projected to reach 170% over the next three decades.

“Does it hit a wall at some point—and if so, when and what’s that threshold?” asked Steiner.

“You just don’t get to issue all this debt and then not pay the bill,” concluded McCullough.
