How the U.S. last fully paid off its debt: You might be surprised
QUARTZ (The ATLANTIC's new strictly digital site for global business news & views) offers this provocative piece, "How the U.S. last paid off its debt: By stealing land from native Americans". (Also check out the piece about how some of America's richest people stand to profit from the fiscal cliff.)
I'm not surprised at all by this. The U.S. government is one of the largest criminal enterprises in the world. Now that there's no land left to steal, they're going after top wage earners first, then 401-K's, and eventually they'll even find a way to tax the 47%.
I think Teatime may be on to something with that Saudi Arabia thing.
