U.S. Debt. Who Owns? A change
 
The broad Picture. Now Japan owns more than China.
Do you know how much?

Does the U.S. FED owe as much as Japan and China?

Does it matter?

just sayin' :)

Personally I think that this first article and this second article are better. Gives more of an over all picture not just focusing on foreign debt.

Of course, don't forget about the spending. It is the last pie chart you want titled,"All Federal Spending."

And Where the Government Gets the money.

The posted graphs are all the highest level you can get. Total Federal Spending, Total Federal Revenue, and Total Federal Debt. There are only really a few solutions to the problem.

1) Raise taxes
2) Drastically revamp Social Security and Medicare.
3) Debt forgiveness (including US persons turning in bonds for free)

There are others, but we’ve already stumbled into Porky’s territory. This isn’t the place for that, by design, understandably.
