Federal Debt Held by Foreign and International Investors: Graph of the Week 6/18/2012
The Graph of the Week shows the amount of Federal Debt held by Foreign and International Investors, as reported by the U.S. Treasury's Financial Management Service.
Well, lets look on the bright side. The debt is denominated in dollars - and if need be we can always make lots of those. We can also look at it as a "Flight to quality". Yeah, that's the ticket.... after all, would foreign investors be interested in Euro-denominated debt right now? Or would they want to hold Russian or Chinese debt?
