Who owns the sovereign debt of the United States? (Part II)
By TigerHawk at 12/11/2009 11:38:00 PM
Yesterday we posted a static graphical depiction of the ownership of United States treasury securities by foreign country. Check out this dynamic video reflecting the same data over a period of years. Notice how the pie grows, and particularly the growth of China's share of the total and the shrinking of Japan's.
I believe that these various countries need to call in their markers. America NEEDS to KNOW how much down the crapper the o has forced us into. Then maybe America will finally storm the castle for the final time.
