hey, don't be sorry, it was a good question.

the media paints it as if some countries are stable and others aren't, i don't believe them. everyone's screwed. it's just my opinion though, no logic thought or academic reason behind it.

The answer is really very simple, as pieman has stated... Um, ALL of them are broke!!! Most have been broke for a very long time. It was only a metter of time before a good strong wind was going to blow this whole house of cards down. Top economists have always predicted that fiat currency and private fractional reservse banking would destroy Capitalism - looks like they were right on the money!

Really??? You use gold and silver coins there? I was under the impression that you used a fractional reserve banking system, much like the rest of the world, and that your Nationalbank functioned the same as our Federal Reserve, printing and circulating fiat currency? Oh wait, it does! So, your country is broke, just like the rest of them! They just haven't admitted it to you yet.

Um not every nation is broke / running on deficits (assuming that's what we are calling broke?)

If you mean "close to collapse" or having high debt to gdp, mostly its just a,erica and europe (not all).

Ireland has been ready to fold since oct, when their debts mature they will not have enough euros to pay it back and thus will default.. their debt to gdp is nearly 1,000%. Highest debt percentage in the world. In fact, ireland not collapsing yet is astonishing, they should have gone around the same time as iceland.

sorry, what?

gdp is 258bn according to google
debt in dec 2008 was 50bn and according to the news last night the deficit at the moment is 10bn, so that's 60bn tops.

where does 1000% come from?
