21brandon21: http://www.nationaldebtclocks.org/debtclock/newzealand The doom clock. The Debt is mathematically impossible to pay off.
If the figures in that debt clock are to be believed, I don't think we are doing too bad after all. Look at the % of debt to GDP, a quick glance at the USA, UK, Japan, South Korea.... doesn't make us look too bad, all things considered. And no doubt we took a bit of a hiding as a result of the Christchurch Earthquake, GFC etc.
I feel a little better, time for a glass of wine.
