As of January 2006, Foreigners Own Controlling Share in US Economy
According to IMF et al:
Foreign holdings of Treasury securities, private and public,were $2.188 trillion, or 51 percent, in January - up from and $1.976 trillion, or 49 percent, in March 2005. Foreigners held $1.576 trillion in Jan 2004, or 44 percent.Congratulations, America. You are officially no longer beholden to American interests.
Their control may not be de jure, but it's de facto.
Are you ready to end this madness? Or must you wait until that figure is 100%?
