Household Debt as a Percentage of GDP (Developed and Emerging Countries)
You can see in the graph from The Economist (with data from Mckinsey) that the Anglo-Saxon countries have the highest household debt of selected countries. The emerging countries have the lowest household debt. As you were able to see in this post with total debt (government, household, financial and non-financial) Britain was also the country with the highest total debt.
