The Lebanese Public Debt –  الدين العام [Infographic بالعربي]

The Lebanese Public Debt – الدين العام [Infographic بالعربي]

Ever since the Civil War [1975 - 1990] that shattered the country’s dreams and dispersed its families among the continents and the afterlife, Lebanon’s once booming economy is now sinking in a record-high debt surpassing the $55 billion mark. With a faltering lifestyle and a struggle to keep the economy afloat, hope seems in a gloom as no policy is in place to target the deficit but a measly attempt to shave off a fraction of the interest that nears equating the original debt. This infographic is dedicated to shed light on who’s to blame, an overview of the ramifications, and where we currently stand. Thanks.

  1. Hi, nice post. do you know about the amount of money that is being spent on the salaries of the politicians and armed forces?

    thank you

    • Hey Mazen. Unfortunately, my data and research was restricted to the salaries of politicians solely. I may, however, consider it for a separate infographic :)

  2. Awesome job. How accurate is this information to share? Its amazing yet depressing that as Lebansese we don’t realize how dangerous the situation is and we feel that we don’t need to do anything about it.
    I hope we wake up one day before it is too late.


    • Thank you Abdallah. Credibility is an important factor when making infographics. You can check the sources in the bottom to see where the data is coming from. Glad you liked it :)
