The Three Great Certainties: Death, Taxes And Soaring Global Debt–Headed For $255 Trillion

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes and that global debt will keep rising in perpetuity. Addressing the third, yesterday the Institute of International Finance reported that global debt has now hit $250 trillion and is expected to hit a record $255 trillion at the end of 2019, up $12 trillion from $243 trillion at the end of 2018, and nearly $32,500 for each of the 7.7 billion people on planet.
