Actually, what caused the debt was Industrialization and the destruction of Capital.

As Steve on Economic Undertow has demonstrated on numerous ocassions, Industrial processes never pay for themselves and always have to be funded with debt.  The capital is the stored fossil fuel energy, and when it is burned up it no longer has value, it just floats around as molecules of CO2 in the atmosphere.

As long as we burned the fossil fuels, we would have accumulated the debt no matter what.  That we accumulated so much of it pursuing endless war rather than trying to build a more sustainable system is very sad of course.

RE

And the capitalists on the hook for said debt pay for it in part via externalized costs, as enumerated in the meme.

If I knew I'd be drinking coffee out of it right now.

If I find out I'll let you know.
