<p>“Over $15 trillion was added to the global debt mountain last year, bringing the total to a new record high of $313 trillion,” the research said. According to a study citing IIF, “the global debt-to-GDP ratio declined for a third consecutive year, largely driven by mature markets.”</p>
<p>IIF estimates that the total debt was around $210 trillion roughly ten years ago.</p>
<p>According to Anadolu Agency, established markets like the US, France, and Germany accounted for almost 55% of the overall debt, with emerging countries like China, India, and Brazil also exhibiting an increase in debt.</p>
<p>The cumulative debt of emerging and developed nations increased to $104.6 trillion and $208.3 trillion, respectively, in the previous year.</p>
