A quick at-a-glance map via Bloomberg shows global debt-to-GDP ratios. According to Bloomberg figures, the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio is 58.2 percent, compared to 70 percent for the European Union as a whole, while a PIIGS member, like Greece, checks in at 126.8 percent. As you may have guessed, the highest debt-to-GDP ratio is in Japan, 196.4 percent.

Ironically, the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) issued 5 billion euros of five-year, 2.75 percent notes this morning, more than 20 percent of which was purchased by the Japanese government.
