The Debt Thing

There was a lot of puttering involved in yesterday's post. Much of it was double-checking my data (probably not too interesting) so I hid it as "additional notes" in that post. But this graph must not be hidden.

Federal debt since 1990 is fairly stable at 60% of GDP until 2008, when it shoots up to 100% of GDP. A big change, and sudden.
