In its introductory section, the article develops the contemporary paradigm of public debt, which, gradually, occupies increasingly more space in the European and international praxeological discourse; the initial approach starts from debt in its most general sense, going down to the concepts of public debt and external or foreign debt, described by significant common intersections or even congruence in various economies, in relation to their monetary convertibility. The central section of the paper is descriptive, focusing on the ranking of contemporary economies in relation to their public debt (including, in a relatively forced manner, also Romania in the table of the nations with a statistically significant impact globally (over 0.5 % of the total/world value) and identifies associations between public debt indicators and other macroeconomic indicators, carried out in conditions of ensured methodological and statistical comparability. A few final remarks describe both the importance and the multiple meanings of the present paper, revealing some of the prospects of new investigations of the public debt paradigm, placed in the author’s good intentions portfolio.
