Resource description

Public debt, sometimes called national debt, is the cumulative amount a national government has borrowed to finance its outlays. Usually a result of deficit spending, public debt is distinct from a budget deficit in that it is cumulative, whereas deficit refers to a particular budget year's shortfall.
