Indeed. You may find - as a complete surprise to some - that the rest of the world is not all that keen on paying for the U.S.'s policy of global military conquest. In some cases (Japan for example) the cash can find better uses at home. ;-)

Depends on your point of view, doesn't it? Russia is not asserting itself, it is merely drawing a line in the sand for the 'New American Century'. And about time someone did that. The U.S. is engaged in unprovoked, illegal wars of aggression and invasions right across the globe with, it seems, more planned. I'm very glad to see that a line in the sand has been drawn.
ib - BLUNTLY - overseas investors don't matter --- there's a major change going on in international investment - remember when the TWIN Deficit was the hype/ if Russia is asserting itself and US is energy positive where do you think the money is going to go -- Europe?? // trading hourly charts is different than a decade investment

nh - not an Achilles heel more like an Achilles lower leg. That is a massive exposure to the goodwill of overseas investors who may choose to repatriate at any time, even for domestic reasons over which the United States has absolutely no control. Look for risks? That exposure is a massive risk.

ib - not beating a dead horse (PETA injunction) - plug US debt into a currency model w/debt as currency - the Fed buying of US debt has been "tightening" (i.e., buying MONEY) -- the EXPERTS are using 19th century economic/finance //// just think about it - maybe it's not a problem look for real risk

"Of the $8.1 trillion in U.S. government notes and bonds not held by the Fed, overseas investors owned $5.4 trillion as of January...."
but - bless their hearts - over at Bloomberg they're trying to spin this as good news.
