That's the answer... You don't need to keep 100% of your debt value in cash... You MUST have a minimum GPD and savings increase (in time) so you can finance your debt.... Countries don't pay the whole debt every year and then make a new one... They just finance the same debt over time...
Of course. Think of the situation in terms of personal finances and it's easier. You may earn $100,000 a year (equivalent to a nation's GDP) but carry a $200,000 home mortgage (equivalent to a national debt). You pay the debt in installments over a period of time. (Of course, if you're the U.S. government you just pay the interest on the debt.) An individual in such a debt situation is doing OK even if his savings are low, but only so long as he doesn't lose his job!

The only explanation would be to own money outside the country, bonds and etcetera, but do they REALLY have nearly their national GDP in oversea assets?
you can. overall external debt of japan is about 30% of GDP.

Yep, 30 of them pressed the wrong button. The electronic voting is like watching your Nan trying to work the TV remote.
