What if U.S. government is a company?


United States, one of the world’s most powerful countries has been shutting down its operation for days. I wonder what if U.S. is actually a company.

In a management terms, U.S’s management is in turmoil and there are divergent in the direction for the future. It can be said that it is managing issue that leads to the shutdown of operation.

In accounting terms, U.S. seems to be facing greater problems, the amount of liabilities U.S. government has is about 75% of the GDP and rising in Obama years. U.S. might face a “debt default and a near-certain credit downgrade” if it doesn’t resume its operation according to the article.

In theory, U.S. reassembles how the world’s worst company might look like on paper. In my view, however, U.S. most valuable asset is its brand and the value of the brand “United States of America” is priceless, thanks to their great marketing as the “protector of freedom and democracy”.

However, like any company with a big brand, the value of the brand cannot operate the company and finance its liabilities itself. U.S. needs to look way ahead in how to grow themselves and improving their finance.
