America's foreign debt burden soared to $532.5 billion in 1988, pushing the United States further into hock as the world's largest debtor country, the government reported today. The Commerce Department said the new debt total was $154.2 billion higher than the $378.3 billion in debt to foreigners that the United States owed at the end of 1987.
