- I don't know where you're getting this from but what debts "other countries owe us" that you think will make everything "be jsut fine".
The US national debt is enormous and your current spending deficit is huge.
You guys are up to your oxters in debt to the rest of the developed world.

There is Billions of dollars owed to the United States they give out loans to alot of countries at crazy interest rates. But most of those countries are poor as hell and will never pay back the money with the interest
