GLOBAL DEBT TOPS $244.2T, CRITICALLY EXCEEDING 3X GLOBAL GDP
-- MATASII RESEARCH ANALYSIS & SYNTHESIS --
As of Q3 2018 global debt equaled $244.2T, equivalent to 318% of world GDP. This is nearly 3X Global GDP.
While debt is at a record high, interest rates are close to record lows (via Financial Repression) which is temporarily allowing this "charade" to continue.
There is $11 trillion in global negatively yielding bonds
The reason is the unprecedented intervention in debt markets by central banks. "Financial suppression" means there are $11.0tn of bonds trading with negative yields today.
One reason growth & inflation has disappointed in the past 10 years is the ever-growing level of debt, which is not "multiplying" into economic activity, but is rather leading consumers & companies to increase savings and suppress "animal spirits".
