Treasury Department reports $1.2 TRILLION loss in 2017

• thedailybell.com By Simon Black

This is something the government does every year, similar to how large companies like Apple, or Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, publish their own annual reports.

Unlike Berkshire and Apple, though, whose financial reports typically show strong, positive results, the US government's financial statements are a complete horror show.

Right at the beginning of the report, the government explains that it's "net loss" for the year was an unbelievable $1.2 TRILLION.

Read that number again.

$1.2 trillion. That's simply staggering.

It's larger than the size of the entire Australian economy… and constitutes a loss of more than $2.2 million per minute.
