    It is interesting to monitor how the public and private debt curves are trending.

    Since the crisis of 2008, total credit market debt as a % of GDP has been going down for the first time since history. Private debt was in a debt deleveraging mode (blue graph), while the Federal Reserve's public debt was in a debt expansion mode (red graph).

    If we look at the nominal value of debt, we can see that since 2014, total, private and public debt are all growing again, resuming exponential expansion.
