How so? The U.S. debt is more than $15 trillion. Even their next 7 hillbilly/ shitbilly generations wont be able to pay it back.
They owe China more than $1 trillion, and are on life support from Saudi/ Gulfy's and Japanese and Korean largesse.....and good will. They owe Japan unknown trillions, but won't admit it.
Russia has more more than 130 billion barrels of proven reserves, and the largest proven gas reserves. It is currently the largest exporter of energy in the world......even more than Saudi's.
It has a net negative population growth, and its gdp and gnp per capita have doubled in the last 5 years.
The Rouble keeps rising and the USD keeps falling. The EU trash union is bankrupt and is a basket case with the exception of Germany.
You gotta be shitting me 'Mustavaris' to believe the U.S is doing better than Russia, and not to mention the U.S. has better long term prospects than Russia......knowing what is going on in the U.S. right now.
Me, being in the Mining/ Oil & Gas game for the last 10 years am right in the middle of it. I know what's going on in the U.S;)
The U.S. is the new third world buddy........welcome to the new American Century..........
Russian foundament of her economy is far more shaky than US one. The US economy is set to decline and get smaller once the bubble part of it bursts, but in the long run it is the Russia that has rather gloomy prospects.
