The world in red and blue (3)

My Graph #3 from yesterday:
Graph #1: Domestic Financial & Gross Federal Debt, Billions
Red is Federal. Blue is Financial.

Looks like the red and blue lines run really close together for a really long time. Well... they could be pretty far apart and still look close, because the recent numbers are so very, very big. So I want to compare the red and blue lines with a ratio.

Graph #2: Federal Debt per dollar of Financial Debt

Graph #3: Financial Debt per dollar of Federal Debt

Oh. Just so you don't get the wrong impression, the red line on Graph #4 below is the same as the blue line on Graph #3 above:

After World War II, there was a lot more government debt. But not any more.
