Debt Jubilee Campaign's map of Debt across the planet

3 Sep 2013

The Jubilee Debt Campaign has just released a new interactive map examining levels of debt across the globe.

 

They say "Figures on debt often miss the point entirely. When talking about a country’s ‘debt’, newspapers refer to just the debt owed by its government. But this includes debts which are owed to citizens of that country (not necessarily a problem). And it ignores the debt owed by private companies and banks (which can be a problem). No single figure can capture all the issues with debt across the world. But in these maps we present some of those which are most important and - we think - will surprise you".
