    OmfgWtfZergd: Not all of it. And it’s a deficit, not a debt. The reason why it’s a problem, is that when a government spends money it doesn’t have, it causes an oversupply of currency, which causes inflation. A bit of inflation is fine, but when it gets too high too fast, it can spiral out of control and cause your economy (and any economy connected to yours) to completely crash. Thus, we want to control government spending – especially spending which is not in some way beneficial to the economy and thus balancing – because we don’t want to throw… Read more »
