Is the economy going to collapse? Is the great depression nigh? In the opinion of every informed economist (those with a track record of being right) - no. But that doesn't matter, because if you can spread fear and scare people into thinking the great depression has arrived, its all that easier to manipulate them.
The US government's debts have ballooned so badly the National Debt Clock in New York has run out of digits to record the spiralling figure.
The digital counter marks the national debt level, but when that passed the $10 trillion point last month, the sign could not display the full amount.
The board was erected to highlight the $2.7 trillion level of debt in 1989.
The clock's owners say two more zeros will be added, allowing the clock to record a quadrillion dollars of debt.
