Global Debt Clock - public AND private

The Economist has a Global Public Debt Clock on their site now, along similar lines to the American and Irish debt clocks but monitoring the total public debt of the whole world.

But lots of people are concerned by the buildup of private, consumer and corporate, debt as well as debt incurred by governments. So, inspired by previous conversations with Nick Rowe, I decided to extend it to show the net total of ALL debt in the world - public and private.

The clock will automatically update to the correct figures in real time.

Here it is - enjoy:

How do you know economists have a sense of humor? They use a decimal place.

Am I missing some macro joke here?
