"National Debt" provides insight into the national debts of more than 180 countries! It shows the development of the national debt in real-time, and provides an overview of the year-to-year historical development of the debt. The app has the option to display the debt as percentage of the gross national product, and show this result on a comprehensible World Debt Map!
To put the large numbers of the national debt into perspective, the app shows what you would have been able to buy with the national debt (e.g. find out how many Iraq Wars is equivalent to the national debt). You can adapt and specify your own items in this list.
The app also shows how long it would take to pay off the debt when paying a given amount per day, and shows the debt as percentage of the gross national product.
The data is based on official numbers provided by the governments and are updated on a regular basis.
Disclaimer: the real-time numbers in the app are estimates. No rights may be derived from the data provided in the app.

This one app has taught me so much more then 15 years of school junk education about history of the world. The entire world is in debt, real tragedy of the world...
But the real tragedy is that the people don't seem to care anymore. It's not our problem, we say.
