The National Debt Clock Can No Longer Keep Up
For nearly two decades the National Debt Clock has stood in Times Square, faithfully tracking not only what the US debt is, but also an individual family’s part of that debt. When the number recently hit ten trillion dollars the clock ran out of digits. A quick fix was to turn the digital dollar sign into another numeral, but the Durst Organization, who owns the clock, will also be adding two new spaces next year. See the AP release here.
