Simple answer: To ourselves.
Reason we cannot just annul it: Debt defines money. The money that circulates the world, pays your salary and keeps the economy going is based on other peoples debts. This is the reason why an economy must always grow.

who the **** do we owe all this money to? some guy named vinny?
User avatar #119 to #31 - ericzxvc (01/26/2013) [-]
To ourselves... instead of worrying about borrowing money from other people, we borrow it from or own respective currency; basically we pull it out of thin air. You cannot get rid of the debt because it would cause massive inflation and make the currency essentially worthless (see WW2 Germans who burned money because it was cheaper than wood).

Thats ******* stupid. We're in debt with the future...
#35 - joaomartins (01/26/2013) [-]
This should be on ****
#38 - wyldek (01/26/2013) [-]
I've always been confused about this. How can "The World's Debt" be anything other than 0$? It's a closed system isn't it? For every dollar of debt, someone else must have a dollar that's owed them.
#39 to #38 - anon (01/26/2013) [-]
Thats exactly what i was thinking. Like somebody is owed a **** TON of money right now!
#40 to #38 - limebriggss (01/26/2013) [-]
thats what i usta think but then my civics teacher ( the coolest mofo on the planet ) explained it to me basically its inflation that was just kind of though up like the money never really resented someone else s work, the super wealthy were just like ohh well i have this much money now and screw what you say

Am I the only one who wonders who the WORLD is in debt to?
User avatar #126 to #117 - Ruspanic (01/26/2013) [-]
The world isn't in debt to any one entity, that's a sum of the debt held by all the world's nations.
User avatar #128 to #126 - PieBraproductions (01/26/2013) [-]
i know that, i just wanted to state that the world has no debt at all... its just the people who live on earth that are in debt to each other.

World Banks and sometimes other countries. Like i Don't mean like TD Canada trust bank, but like BIG ******* banks that make loans countries for bridges, military, and other big projects.

Those mother ******* loan shark martians! They say if we don't pay they'll come round and break out ice caps.

But, to whom do we owe it?
#85 to #81 - anon (01/26/2013) [-]
The owners.

The banks, other countries, ourselves. In short, everyone. We literally borrow the money off ourselves by just printing it off when we need it. My economics tutor summed it up quiite nicely by just saying "money is only as valuable as people believe it to be". Cash is no longer representetive of anything, technically the USA could be called the poorest country on earth purely because of its debt. However money is much more complex than that.

the truth of his statement is visible in war scenarios when money isn't worth **** but goods like food are.
#106 to #87 - anon (01/26/2013) [-]
thank you, that was really helpful
User avatar #124 to #106 - gokombwantu (01/26/2013) [-]
No problem. Its hard to explain in a simple way but that sort of covers it.

"The world is in Debt"

I'm sorry but which planet do we owe the money too?

I hate money why can't we just advance as humans, with the resources we have?
User avatar #82 to #74 - PubLandlord (01/26/2013) [-]
Individual defecit countries like the ones stated owe lots of money to countries with a surplus, inter government trading. They also owe "future money" to their citizens in forms of pensions, and many private individuals and organizations are owed money from governments as they own government bonds.

Although it would be nice to live harmoniously without money, you would need to change the complete human psyche which would never work, money just makes it easier to acquire things you need
#116 to #74 - anon (01/26/2013) [-]
Your opinion is silly. Money is among the best "inventions" known to humankind. Money prevents us from living in a barter economy and living like cave men. I suspect what you truly dislike is not money, but instead avarice, materialism, etc. These are characteristics of human frailty rather than the evils of pieces of paper called money.

Who the **** is the world actually in debt to ?
User avatar #29 to #4 - zappasc **User deleted account** (01/26/2013) [-]
Some of it is private companies but most of it is depth to each other.

Banks
User avatar #28 to #8 - zombiebawls (01/26/2013) [-]
who owns the banks?
User avatar #33 to #28 - antinonymous (01/26/2013) [-]
ok everyone owes it to the banks which print the money, so when we pay back the interest its money made by those banks which actually has no real value. Banks that are factually owned by the rothschilds and rockefellers among others that I know not of.
User avatar #115 - dawggz ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]

User avatar #122 to #115 - thewalruss ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
To other countries, or to the WB.
User avatar #123 to #122 - dawggz ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]

User avatar #125 to #123 - thewalruss ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]

User avatar #132 to #125 - dawggz ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
... exactly, you don't need to study friggin economy to see what I wrote there for peak's sake.
User avatar #136 to #132 - thewalruss ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
Well, I think that "world debt stadistic" is the sum of each country's own debt.
#16 - anon (01/26/2013) [-]
who the **** are they all endebted to???
#21 to #16 - icanhasaccount ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
the world banks and the richest people on earth investing in those banks.
This system exists because real money is worthless the value is just attributes to it forcefully and there is not enough "stuff" to equal the money out.
Basically the debt is stupidity , useless work , overpriced items that lose value , failed jobs , bad business. Everything we did but never amounted to anything since it did cost money but it didn't produce jack ****
#22 to #21 - icanhasaccount ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
not saying it's a fair system but it's what it is
