There are stories like this floating in the internet.
Apple is now more liquid than the United States government, the Financial Post reports.
As the government struggles to resolve the debt ceiling debate, the operating balance in Washington is at US$73.768 billion and falling.
Meanwhile, Apple has US$75.876 billion – and that number isn’t going anywhere but up as the company continues to break records and make its competitors look bad.
Does Apple really have more money than the U.S. government?
Is the story misleading?
