The Economist’s global debt clock

The Economist’s global debt clock

UK weekly newspaper The Economist has produced an interactive animation showing public debt for the whole planet. It covers most countries (99% of world GDP).

With it you can display debt by year and country, see the amount of debt in dollars and as a percentage of GDP for each country and draw comparisons. A counter similar to the one in New York’s Times Square gives a second-by-second estimation of changes in global public debt.
