"Balance sheets (with assets) are published every year in the annual Financial Report of the United States Government. I've linked to the FY2011 report below."My post was about healhthcare, education, and infrastructure and their roles as national assets and the fact that they are not really valued as they would be in a business. The "balance sheet" that you show does not contradict this, it confirms it. A country's biggest asset is an educated population. Spending on education is an investment in the country's future. The balance sheet shown amounts to no more than the cash accounts the US holds.V.
