Western debt based economics: It now takes $10 of debt to create $1 of GDP growth

When central banks embark on fiscally irresponsible monetary policies, they tend to create anomalies that lead to economic crashes, bubbles, and as we are seeing in places like Greece and Japan, eternal deflationary growth.
But the United States for the time being is different, and this is because they still remain the sole keeper of the global reserve currency.  And this means that they can print endless money without thought, at least until the consequences of ignoring reality comes to bear.
Following endless zero interest rates and four different quantitative easing programs, a number of anomalies have arisen that are becoming impossible to ignore, and even more difficult to counter.  The first is that they have created so much debt that it requires the creation of new credit simply to remain static within the current economy.  And secondly, that debt creation has completely wiped out the concept of capital, where a new report by the Bureau of Economic Analysis shows that it now takes $10 of new debt just to create $1 of new GDP growth.
