Chart du Jour: What deleveraging?

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

The charts below, courtesy of Bianco Research (via The Big Picture), show U.S. private, government and total debt in both nominal terms (top graph) and as a percentage of GDP (bottom graph). In short, the deleveraging process still has a long way, and could cause a headwind for economic growth for many years to come. (Please note that the right-hand axis on the bottom chart should read “% of GDP” instead of “Trillions of dollars”.)
