Does the US Deserve the Downgrade? Is It Really a AAA Country?

The US has recently lost its AAA rating. This has sparked a lively debate, with many claiming that the decision is political. Setting aside these aspects, let us see what holistic complexity-based resilience rating says of the US as a system. Our analysis has been based on data from the World Bank, which includes 800+ macroeconomic and other parameters (see list below). The reason we claim the analysis is holistic is because we have taken simultaneously into account all the aspects of a country, such as:            

Economy Industry Agriculture Energy Society Ecosystem Transportation Telecommunications Military/Defence Education Health System etc.

In other words, our analysis combines 800+ KPIs into one single meta-KPI. The result, in any event, is as follows:

A robustness (resilience) of 70% - which corresponds to a two-star rating - is nothing to celebrate. Certainly, it does not justify the traditional triple-A rating which the US government claims to be more appropriate. The US, as a system, is approaching critical complexity (red zone) which it will reach, at the present rate, within a decade or so. This is illustrated in the plot below. The closer complexity (middle curve) gets to critical complexity, the more uncertain, turbulent and chaos-dominated the system becomes. It also becomes less governable and more difficult to fix. Since the critical complexity dimishes at a higher rate than complexity, the situation is progressively getting worse. Both curves peak in 2007, which is when the crisis has started.

As far as robustness (resilience) is concerned it is clearly dropping but the rate of decay is slowing down.
