In the last 2 centuries we have dramatically improved our wealth generating machinery, aka our productivity, so as long as the borrowing is not larger than the rate of wealth generation improvement it would make perfect economic sense to borrow a hard to make dollar today if I can pay it back with a easy to make dollar tomorrow.  And that's why, except for the Clinton years, the USA has been running a budget deficit every single year since 1835. And in the entire history of the nation you will not find a time less appropriate to worry about the budget deficit than right now!
