The Troubling State of the US Government’s Credit Rating

Aug 2, 2023 | Uncategorized

In recent news, there has been alarming information regarding the US government’s AAA credit rating. This downgrade has occurred at a time when interest rates are skyrocketing, making it increasingly challenging for the government to manage its massive debt. With the debt clock quickly approaching 33 trillion, it seems that the government is continually adding more debt each month. This situation raises concerns about the state of the US economy.

The Rising Debt and Decline of the Dollar

The decline in the value of the dollar further adds to the trouble. The government’s strategy of increasing debt selling has created a situation where it will become nearly impossible for them to pay off their debt in the future. Lenders will likely demand repayment, creating significant difficulties for the government.

Poor Governance and Increasing Corruption

The US government’s poor governance and increasing corruption are also contributing to the problem. Corruption is evident and widespread, leading to a decline in accountability. The government’s approach to raising the debt limit is simply political theater, resulting in lenders losing confidence in their fiscal management. As a result, the deficit is rapidly growing, and interest rates are rising, leading to even worse circumstances.

The Impact on the Average Citizen

The repercussions of this situation extend beyond the government and affect the average citizen as well. People are losing faith in the US government due to institutional corruption and irresponsible spending. The massive interest payments on the debt are dragging down economic growth. In light of these factors, it is crucial for individuals to take precautions. This includes diversifying investments, such as acquiring gold and silver, as a hedge against the falling US dollar.

The Consequences of Continued Borrowing

Additionally, the recent rating downgrade comes at a terrible time, coinciding with the announcement that the US government is seeking to borrow over a trillion dollars. This trend of borrowing cannot continue without consequences, and the government may need to monetize its debt in the near future. It is unlikely that countries such as the BRICS nations will be eager to buy US debt, especially considering US sanctions against countries that refuse to comply.

Although the rating downgrade may currently have minor implications, it signifies potential problems in the future. It is important to keep an eye on the situation as it unfolds. These are just some thoughts to consider regarding the current state of affairs. Feel free to share your own opinions in the comments.
