Definition:

A debt is a sum of money owed.

A debt crisis is what is happening right now. If you can afford a window, look out of it.

Note: The 'B' in 'Debt' is silent, like a Swiss banker.

127 – The average number of credit cards owned per person in the US.

704 vs 28,841 (USD) – China's average debt per capita compared to the US. (Real number)

5 – The number of fingers on the average human hand. (This one's real too)
