Je me pose cette question depuis pas mal de temps maintenant et j'ai du mal à trouver une réponse claire et non biaisée sur le sujet.

Tout ce que je lis et que j'entends c'est du style "la dette c'est pas bien" ou "on a passé les X% du PIB !" sans jamais vraiment expliquer quel est le problème concret d'un tel niveau de dette pour l'état, voire même l'impact que ça a sur les français.

De ce que je comprends, l'état emprunte sur les marchés financiers pour couvrir certaines dépenses qui ne peuvent pas être couvertes par l'impot (problème de délai, faut demander au peuple de contribuer plus, etc). L'état paie des intérêts sur un emprunt et à l'échéance du contrat, quand il doit rembourser le capital, il fait un nouveau prêt pour rembourser le premier et ainsi de suite. Ce qui déjà est bien différent du fonctionnement des prêts pour les particuliers et donc peut potentiellement créer de la confusion.

Donc si ma compréhension est bonne, ne devrait on pas parler du coût de la dette (remboursement des intérêts uniquement) et non pas de son montant total ? Car si on remplace d'anciens contrat avec des taux élevés par de nouveaux contrats avec des taux plus faible, le montant de la dette peut augmenter mais son coût diminuer. J'imagine que le problème de fond serait une tendance inverse, une augmentation des taux qui rendrait le coût de la dette de plus en plus important ? Voire une situation dans laquelle l'état aurait du mal à faire de nouveaux emprunts et donc ne pourrait plus rembourser les contrats arrivant à terme ? Que ce passerait-il si jamais ça devrait se produire ?

This is a follow on from this event a little while back: 'Reckless': Man pretending to be injured on motorway overbridge arrested.

Back in April, I spent some time looking into a fledgling charity called the Suicide Reduction Trust (SRT). It had caught my eye after a reader tip-off about a TradeMe listing they believed might be a scam. The listing advertised a raffle with the prize too good to be true: a free house. And not just any house, a $2m Auckland mansion, along with cash for furniture and a brand new Tesla to boot. The raffle was advertised as raising funds for the SRT, which had launched shortly before the win-a-house promotion. While TradeMe pulled the listing, telling The Bulletin that it went against its rules, the raffle was legitimate, as Stuff’s Tony Wall reported at the time. But who was behind it and why?

A couple of weeks ago, an email arrived in The Spinoff inboxes with a provocative and, to be frank, shocking subject line: “Auckland lawyer hangs himself on Auckland motorway overpass.” It was from Jaques, criticising the media for failing to cover his new charity. The body of the email clarified this was simply an attention-grabbing stunt. “I’m going to do you a favour and give you the newsworthy clickbait you so badly desire and this morning I’m going to hang myself from an Auckland motorway overpass and you’ll have the story you really want,” he wrote. A few hours later, reports started to emerge of a man dangling from an overbridge, attached to a harness, causing delays to shocked rush hour commuters after two lanes were closed by emergency service. Newshub reported that Jaques was throwing leaflets at the speeding traffic below. He was later charged in relation to offensive behaviour and endangering transport.

Jaques acknowledged it could have “a profound impact on the Trust’s reputation and way of operating” and said “he may have in fact caused more harm than good”.

I found a good one in my neighborhood that I can sort of afford. With how rents are going up, I'd rather be locked in and have a chance of not being rent-burdened someday. Overall, it's in good shape with a good foundation, roof, and utilities. However the current owner was going at it silly and the whole thing is covered in half-started DIY projects.

My friend who is a builder said that actually it's in great shape, it's just going to be a lot of work to clean up the half projects and finish up with the drywall and so on. She guessed it would be 300 hours of work for her or about 1000 for me since I have a lot more to learn. She's offered to work together with me at a discount to teach me how to do things myself/do work-trade where I do grunt work at her sites and she does more specialized labor for me.

I think I wouldn't mind living somewhere jank for a few years as I fixed it, but I am seeking the perspective of people who have done it before. What were your regrets and what do you wish you had known going in?

My union has been coming through for us these past years so I can afford an okay down payment and to get some good inspections.

Overall, I feel mixed. On one hand, this feels like a real chance at stability but on the other it might be saddling myself with more work than I can chew. With each year that passes, my capacity for projects and things outside work wanes and I am a bit worried about the trade-off with having such a big ongoing project and the mental load of it being always around me.

Also for reference, I am used to doing manual labor just not building trades.

So yeah.

Also I'm excited because there is a really big and easy to access attic that can become a dance hall or a jam room. Like it was enough room to have 15 people dancing comfortably up there. Granted that's only really gonna be comfortable in the Spring and Fall months although if we get really moving the Winter could be doable.

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution Politics News:

A photo of Laken Riley, a 22-year-old nursing student who was killed in February on the University of Georgia campus, appeared on the jumbotron at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee ahead of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's speech at the Republican National Convention targeting illegal immigration. The man charged in Riley's death is a Venezuelan man who authorities say was arrested in 2022 after unlawfully entering the United States.
