Two views of the U.S. budget

United States announced preliminarily confirmed budget surplus for September in the amount of USD 75 billion compared to the expected 42 million USD. September was also the last month of the financial year 2012, as America's "fiscal year" always ends this month. Who would like this information pejoratively called icing on the cake will be escorted from the mistaken closer look at the balance of overseas economies over the last year. Too it is not surprising that, apart from the last month to positive numbers only got June. Worse finding is that the U.S. total U.S. budget deficit reached the fourth consecutive year the value of one trillion dollars.

Optimists will certainly argue that this debt is falling. After the White House this year increased debt "only" 1.089 trillion compared to $ 1.297 trillion in 2011. Economic pessimists (intentionally or not used at one word realists) will argue, however, analysis of balance sheet items in the U.S. economy. Smaller relative deficit is "caused" mainly by higher corporate taxes and smaller government spending, not much higher performance industry and household consumption. The year 2011 was also exceptional in spending on stimulus measures and military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. These items far in 2012 was below the previous fiscal year.

The image of American farming therefore may not be defined as a clear disappointment, or, conversely, as a hopeful promise. Clearer answer on the development of local and ultimately global economy logically indicate to budgets of other years.
