AUSTRIA DEBT CLOCK (EURO):
Each citizen's share of this debt is:
And Higher And Higher...
The debt of Austria Austria is the home of the traditional ski-sports. A magnet to tourists and winter lovers, this country offers many sights and a beautiful nature. Unique for it's culuture and wildlife, this perl of mother nature is a nice place to be at. Though, it's debt is rising and there's no end in sight. With a current debt of roughly 233.000.000.000 Euro, it's still doing good compared to it's european neighbours. Currently, every citizen carries a burden of around 31.000 Euro by birthright, giving the country no bright future if things don't change. Questionably the clock is ever going to stop running, let alone turning backwards. Austria's big credit costs it a stunning 8.226.000.000 Euro interest per year, making it very unlikely for the country to ever make it to reduce their debt to 0. This means that every citizen gets a good 1.100 Euro new debt onto their account, each year, by default. Yet, it can still afford to lower their taxes and monthly costs for their people. It's just another part of the economy crisis that still hasn't fully vanished from the markets, being mirrored by the massive problems within the European Union with it's Euro currency. Many countries are in deep debt, some don't have the liquidicity to pay it off by themselves, needing help from other EU- members, whose are already struggling themselves. If things don't change quickly, the euro is going to run into a big crash that will have effects on the worldwide economy. Politics must find a way to stop this debt-spiral that is pulling us further into it.

Austria’s Public Debt: What Does it Mean for the Country? As of 2019, Austria’s public debt stands at €323.7 billion, according to the Ministry of Finance. This number has risen significantly over the past decade, increasing by €50 billion since 2009. The reasons for this increase are varied and complex but largely boil down to the country’s low economic growth and a lack of prudent fiscal policies. Public debt can be divided into two categories: government debt and debt held by the public. Government debt is the amount of money owed by the government to other entities and can be divided into domestic and foreign debt. Domestic debt is the amount of money the government owes to entities within the country, such as banks, businesses and individuals. Foreign debt is the amount of money the government owes to entities outside the country. Austria’s public debt is largely composed of foreign debt, which makes up 79.3 percent of the total. The largest contributors to Austria’s public debt are the European Union and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The EU has lent the country €154.3 billion, while the IMF has loaned it €79.9 billion. Other contributors include the World Bank, which has loaned Austria €27.4 billion, and private investors, who have loaned it €20.9 billion. The Austrian government has implemented several measures to reduce its public debt, including increasing taxes and cutting spending. It has also taken advantage of low interest rates and has issued bonds to help finance its debt. Furthermore, the government has introduced a number of debt management strategies, such as lengthening the maturity of its debt and refinancing existing debt. The public debt of Austria is a cause for concern, but the country is taking steps to reduce it and improve its economic performance. Nevertheless, the long-term effects of the debt are still uncertain and it remains to be seen how it will affect the country in the future. In the meantime, the government will continue to implement measures to reduce its public debt and ensure the country remains on a stable financial footing.
