    Since 2008, half of the "external" Federal Debt is foreign held. The "foreign fraction" has been increasing, since NAFTA:
    total external Federal debt
    domestic-owned
    foreign-owned

    meanwhile, a third of the (total) Money-supply of USD is foreign held ("Foreign Exchange Reserves denominated in USD").
    Money in US
    Money abroad

    foreigners own half of US Government debt, and a third of US Money.
