Anon,

You misunderstand, Cincinnati wasn't mentioned in the underlying link, only in the full link. For those of us in northern NJ there is only one Coney Island and it's located in NYC.

As I posted earlier the clickable link was,

Link headline was "Coney Island to Shut Down All Amusement Park Rides"

I had absolutely no idea that there was a Coney Island Amusement Park in Ohio.

Can you grok the difference between some pissant amusement park and a national icon.

Nathan's hot dog eating contest, a boardwalk, a large beach, amusement rides and all of it accessible by the subway.

Oh, the link you posted for us clearly has a very visible in Cincinnati ---there must have been OUTRAGE that led to that correction.

However-- I will note that there is a world beyond the east coast and the people who live there.

JIB --and likely millions in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, probably Illinois and southern Michigan too--know there is a Coney Island in Ohio!
You easterners' lack of awareness of it should not serve as some kind of standard, should it?? ;-)

That's why we have an Electoral College! Because our Founders knew you'd think like that famous New Yorker cover!!! They knew there'd be the people of the Acela Corridor who would try to act like all that matters is what they know about before there were even steam engines.

( I TOTALLY get your point---and this Michigander had no idea there was a Coney Island in Cincinnati either. )

OL,

I was interested in that, but it wasn't just government debt.

Yes, it included Federal, State and Municipal debt, but it also included personal and corporate debt. Government and corporate pension shortfalls. Entitlement benefits in perpetuity, etc.

It was a very wide estimate of overall debt in the US.

In my mind, state pensions are the worst. People work serious overtime in their last three years and collect a pension higher than their base salary. That has to stop.

Bannon has been over in the UK, too. He made 2 separate appearances at the Oxford Union which I listened to on YouTube.

I think 450% was private individual debt, but most of the debt doesn't consist of rated securities, but of unfunded, or underfunded, pension liabilities and entitlements. The pension liabilities in the individual states are enormous.

Question about the debt.

What if there is a LOT of money floating around that could be used to pay down the debt? I am talking about useless government programs, skimming and payoffs, unnecessary employees, etc.

Last night President Trump mentioned the debt and how he would get to it, but the military and some other things had to be built up first.

I can't help but think of all of those people in Congress who get wealthy (like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren) and others like the Obamas and Clintons.

Rats off the sinking ship: Illinois lost $310 billion in income to outmigration since 2000

The Infamous Ignatz

According to MMT, debt to GDP of 2000% is of no consequence. It's a beautiful thing.

OTOH and more seriously unfunded liabilities and actual existing debt are fundamentally different in a couple of ways. That actual existing debt has a short half life. It can definitely be rolled over or even repudiated but it is an existing hard debt that has no theory connected to its value, but has a face value and a defined duration.
An unfunded liability is a less concrete and more vague promise of future return over a much extended and elastic time frame. Many of the projections about it aren't a lot more valuable than those about the climate, both on the high side and the low. Moreover because the time frames are so long minor adjustments can have a lot more effect, as Rick Ballard often pointed out about SS [Medicare, not so much].
And since they are largely self funded and since the benefits are more subject to adjustment there is a lot more leeway in biting the bullet when crunch time comes. Many defined benefit plans are already being converted to defined contribution. Even CalPers has adjusted things. Not enough yet, but math will force it to.
I have a friend who was a fire captain in Stockton CA, who took a significant pension haircut when Stockton went bankrupt. He adjusted in various ways and didn't like it but recognized things that can't go on don't. That recognition will grow as the promises made expire.

Jane

Just came back from the pool. A friend from MA who is a part timer and a died-in-the-wool democrat has changed his tune, and not in a good way.

He asked me if I knew who we gave the most money to in the middle east. I said yes - we give the most to the only democracy - Israel. He asked me if I thought that was okay? I said yes. He demanded to know why we were so mean to Palestine, and I said because they are terrorists. He thinks that's our fault. He loves the squad. Finally he can't imagine opposing single mothers with their babies coming over the wall.

First person I've encountered who has completely changed with the democrat part. And this is a smart guy. Blew my mind.

Iggy, your points are all fair and we have been saying that here since Rick Ballard was a pup..

But in the end the qualification is useless since the problem is not the numbers, it is the rot at the core of WeThePeople which allowed the situation to get to this point.

If you have a way to fix THAT, then I can create the spreadsheet for bringing the debt under control myself.

Water under the bridge.

OL,

I'm just going off my memory of that article, but you are correct. Unfunded and underfunded state pension plans are a huge liability. Fix them now. A near impossibility. And they would be in good shape. Altogether too many state employees game the system and retire with HUGE pensions.

Save up sick days and deferred vacation days and cash in at your final salary.

In private industry your sick days expire each year. If you don't take vacation days you lose them. Most companies require you take a vacation because it also serves as an audit check. If you are engaged in fraud your absence will reveal it.

State-wide unions with local units often have more bargaining expertise than an individual city.

The underlying climate data is suspect. I understand the need to "homogenize" data so that a study is using "comparable" data. But early records are pushed down and later data are pushed up. When you compare the raw data against the "adjusted" data there is an upward slope line to the adjustments.

This day in history:

In the first unqualified defeat of a British naval squadron in history, U.S. Captain Oliver Hazard Perry lead a fleet of nine American ships to victory over a squadron of six British warships at the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812.

The battle was closely contested for hours, and Perry's flagship Lawrence was reduced to a defenseless wreck. He then transferred to the Niagara and sailed directly into the British line, firing broadsides and forcing the British to surrender. Perry had won a complete victory at the cost of 27 Americans killed and 96 wounded; British casualties were 40 dead and 94 wounded. After the battle, Perry sent a famous dispatch to U.S. General William Henry Harrison that read, "We have met the enemy, and they are ours." The Battle of Lake Erie forced the British to abandon Detroit, ensuring U.S. control over Lake Erie and the territorial northwest.
