Reading this article, there is a line saying,
Still, CBO Director Phillip Swagel said in a statement that a crisis is not immediately at hand. “There is no set tipping point at which a fiscal crisis becomes likely or imminent, nor is there an identifiable point at which interest costs as a percentage of GDP become unsustainable,” Swagel said. “But as the debt grows, the risks become greater.”
I kind of feel it, but it is a bit ambigeuos to me.
Is the meaning of the verb "tipping" defined at this dictionary,, intransitive, 2, "lean, slant"?
Thank you for your help and kindly be reminded my next look might be later because I have to work.
