Have you looked at US public debt to GDP over the past 10 years? https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S

But, why just focus on government debt? What about ballooning corporate and private debt also? Every major trading nation in the world today is in a death spiral of low GDP/rising inequality/rising public and private debt. There's not enough interest in changing the system, so the whole thing is going to crash as soon as all the bandaid solutions stop working!

The French dumped their version of the Republicans and Democrats. But Macron was no maverick! More like the ultimate insider...briefly inside the Hollande Government as finance minister, but spent most of his time at the Rothschild Bank.

The left was divided between three candidates, otherwise their top pick: Mellenchon would have gone to the runoff against Le Pen. A third of voters didn't bother to vote...that's an unprecedented number over there, and a clear indication that a large number of potential voters couldn't accept either candidate.

With all the problems France is facing today, it's likely going to be a rough ride for a fencesitter like Macron!
Thanks from iolo

I think that the great difficulty about totally 'new' and highly personalised politics is that the old parties grew up on a basis of real social forces, however they pretended to escape them, and could be called back to them. People like Macron are just remakes of Napoleon 111 at best. I prefer to know what I'm buying.
