United States borrowed about $439 Billion from others in 2010. That year we had a private investment of $1840 Billion. The investment was on plants, equipment and buildings. Also, we had a Government investment of $500 Billion. This investment was on defence though.
This is absolutely why the borrowing is necessary. Also government uses this for the health care services and other public services.
