What do the national debt and a designer Hepatitis C drug have in common? This question actually spans two areas near and dear to my heart: economics and medicine. What Im going to be covering this week is something that I feel is going to be part of a growing trend in America over the coming decades. You see, too many myself included for quite a while were asking the wrong questions. Many still are. We shouldnt be asking what we can do, conventionally speaking, to pay off the national debt because it cannot be done. Consider the unfunded liability portion and that should be obvious to everyone.

n summary, it is payback time. It might be the sale of a national park near you, a new toll highway, the loss of cattle grazing lands, economic zones for the benefit of others, or the sale of a national landmark. Don’t be surprised when you see these things happen. Weve made our bed and now it is time to lie in it.

Sounds good. The Feds own way too much land.
Sell it off, pay down the debt already.
