Did you know that the top 30 nations based on dues paid to the United Nations are in a combined debt external as of June 2005 nearly $34 trillion U.S. dollars? With the population of the world given by U.S. Census Bureau, Population Division the debt of every person on the planet is just over $5,000. Norway is the only country that does not have any debts external. My question is who holds the debt?

hey jason, it's the same legal/political fiction we've always heard about the national debt.

the general assembly asseses the dues and imposes any penalties for non payment. so each member nation owes their portion of debt to each other and themselves.

so i guess it's up to Norway to bring us all to task. :-0

norway what a sap ...heh
