The government spends a lot of money for war, but the people pay for it. First through taxes; and in the case of WWII, through bonds; but ultimately through the lives of young men and women.

War Bond efforts during WWII were akin to Kickstarter campaigns. You invest in something, eventually get a return and often get rewards (like the paintings, drawings and cartoons offered in this 1942 War Bond Show). Kickstarter uses incentives too.

WWII had to be fought. Lives were lost. And that is the greatest debt any nation has to pay back (if it were only possible).
