DEBT MANAGEMENT : GRAPHIC REVEALS MOST RESPONSIBLE COUNTRIES














This will surprise you and change the way we view countries ...
























“The bigger the better”
proverb generally does not apply to this map.



That’s because HowMuch.net scaled each country by how much unsustainable debt they have.



 Japan is at the top, with a debt-to-GDP ratio of 230%. Greece is number two at 177%. 




The lowest ratios belong to countries with big nationalized oil and gas industries, like Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.



“This debt is not necessarily a bad thing — in fact it’s quite normal for a country to raise debt,”
wrote Raul Amoros, “but excessive debt could put a country’s future economic well-being at risk.”


He pointed out that there is no simple threshold for unsafe levels, but that mounds of debt are associated with more volatile growth.




“Countries with high debt levels are more susceptible to collapse when economic shocks occur,”
he wrote. 



“The important thing is therefore not so much the level of debt, but whether the underlying causes of the high debt level are being addressed.”




As for the U.S., it has dropped from the sixth most-indebted nation in debt-to-GDP terms last year to 12th this year.


 On the surface, that sounds like an improvement, but, in reality, it’s more a case of other countries taking on more debt, since the U.S.’s ratio has actually risen to 104% from 101.5%.




“Many countries, including the U.S., are dealing with unsustainable debt levels,” 
Amoros wrote. 





“In order to reign in this debt, either government revenue generation models will need to change, spending cuts will need to be made, or economic growth will have to increase.”

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
