On November 9, 2023
Analyzing the implications for the U.S. economy
Today there’s been a significant development in the U.S. economy – the U.S. debt interest payments have exceeded $1 trillion for the first time in history. This development warrants a detailed examination.
In this update:
- An overview of the unprecedented increase in U.S. debt interest
- An exploration of the factors contributing to this situation
- An assessment of potential impacts on individual finances
The Escalation of U.S. Debt Interest
“The CBO projects that U.S. government debt will increase by $20 trillion in the next 10 years, equating to $5.2 billion daily or $218 million hourly.” BofA’s Michael Hartnett
The U.S. budget deficit has been a matter of concern for some time. However, the recent surge in U.S. debt interest payments has intensified the issue. According to Treasury Department calculations, the total interest has now exceeded $1 trillion.

The Factors Contributing to This Situation
The increase in interest rates and expenditure over the past two years has resulted in the doubling of U.S. interest since April 2022.
Furthermore, as existing debt is rolled over into higher rates in the coming years, rates are projected to continue their upward trend.

Potential Impact on Individual Finances
This significant shift in the U.S. economy naturally raises questions about its implications for personal finances. The increased debt could potentially lead to increased inflation, default, and currency debasement.
However, it is also plausible that central banks may intervene to stabilize the situation through measures such as Quantitative Easing (QE) and the introduction of Yield Curve Control (YCC) which brings its own set of unintended consequences.
Given these possibilities, it is crucial to prepare for a range of financial scenarios.
