Interesting chart. In isolation, doesn't mean much. You need to look at the debt in relation to the country's earning capacity - GDP. Otherwise, it's like saying Walmart has a lot of debt - and they do in an absolute sense, 56 billion - but not really when you look at their 25B a year in operating cash flow.
