Unsustainable Economy

The United States of America has a reputation of a big borrower (the money is for buying Big Mac, Ipods and guns). However, taking into account the external debt (financial obligations to non-residents) compared to the GDP, the world champion is, by far, the Republic of Ireland.

As a comparison, the ratio of the USA is about 1 in 2009.
Is a economic model depending mainly of the assets of foreigners a sustainable economy?
