Not by a long shot. We have gone through difficult periods before. Nations act as creditors for one another, and things will have to get exponentially worse than they are at p…resent before we have to worry about national bankruptcy. US dollars may not be the hottest item on the international market, but there are positive spins even to that. Our exports become more attractive.
Can't have one side without the other. Sol that would mean you would be both applying for the Mtg., and it's probably better to keep the BK credit/party away. Especially… in todays market of complete aversion to "subprime" lending...which having a BK involved would likely make it.
Like any government, the US could default on its debt obligations, or even abrogate its national debt, which would be the same as declaring bankruptcy but not with the sam…e legal standing. But before that would happen, it could simply authorize a higher debt ceiling and use that money to pay its other debts, which is what it is actually doing whenever it has a budget deficit. The US as a country has a net worth far in excess of its national debt, but as of 2014, the debt of $17.6 trillion was about equal to 104% of the Gross Domestic Product.
Countries can not go bankrupt the way that individuals or businesses do. If the country's credit rating drops further, foreigners will be less eager to buy US bonds and intere…st rates will arise. The government will find it more expensive to increase the debt. Higher interest rates also drive up the cost of doing business and have bad effects on the general economy. Adjustments will have to be made at some point by government-- taxes must be increased and/or expenses must be cut. Both tend to weaken the economy and bring hard times for the people . Cuts in defense would weaken national defense with unknown results. Cuts in social programs tend to hurt the poorer and less privileged the most. Cuts in education (another opinion) I don't want to disillusion you but the US is bankrupt. Our nation's debt is nearly $16-trillion dollars and our annual deficits, in the foreseeable future, exceed $1-trillion per year.
It is legally declared of insolvent The simple answer used to be that you were bankrupt if you could not pay your bills as they came due.

Due to the state of our economy, many businesses have gone bankrupt.
It is. We would need to tax every fortune 500 company at 100% of gross for a hundred years just to pay our debt. With current increases, the debt service will surpass $1.2 mil…lion a family in a few years. We are broke. We still spend like drunk Kennedy's. We just do not realize this yet. Interestingly, half of our spending goes to entitlements, which strictly are unconstitutional. The war(s) make up less then 30% of our budget. We actually our giving too much to the non working class in this country.
Executive Summary - There are now 10 states in the USA that are insolvent and expected to file for bankruptcy in the fairly immediate future (2010). Which 10 States - Californ…ia, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wisconsin. These 10 states account for over one third of the USA population and this is significant. Think of it is more then 33% of the USA going bankrupt. Other States on the Endangered Species List - Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Hawaii. These states are in bad shape and can easily get pushed over into bankruptcy.
