I have always been fascinated with graphs and numbers especially when they are easy to understand. Here is a snapshot of the U.S. national debt from March 2009. I thought it would be interesting to post this for future reference.
The U.S. national debt is approx $11T. Foreign ownership accounts for $3.3T.
Here is the break out.
|Bahamas, Bermuda, Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Netherlands, Panama||$213.6|
|France, India, Korea, Mexico, Singapore, Turkey||$204.0|
|Algeria, Bahrain, Ecuador, Gabon, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Venezuela||$192.0|
|Channel Islands, Isle of Man||$128.2|
|Egypt, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Thailand||$124.3|
|Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Malaysia, Philippines, Sweden||$89.5|
These figures are from the Department of Treasury and The Federal Reserve.
