  • Interesting work from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers partner Mary Meeker as follows….

    “USA Inc. is a non-partisan report that looks at the U.S. federal government (and its financials) as if it were a business. Mary Meeker, partner at KPCB and former financial analyst at Morgan Stanley, created and compiled the report with the goal of informing the discussion about our financial situation and outlook. USA Inc. examines the country’s income statement and balance sheet, aiming to interpret the underlying data and facts, and illustrate patterns and trends in easy-to-understand ways. The report also analyzes the drivers of federal revenue and the history of expense growth, and discusses basic scenarios for how revenue and expense growth might change to help America move toward positive cash flow.”

    Hat tip to Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis for posting some of the charts found below:

    Expenses at a Glance

    Unfunded Liabilities

    Growth in Entitlement Spending

    Healthcare Spending

    One item USA Inc. has no other ‘business’ has is something called a printing press for creation of money; not that printing more money will solve our problems, it won’t.

    Thanks for reading…..
