Over at Global Shift, there’s an article called “Who owns the U.S. debt?” which talks about and lists those countries and institutions that hold U.S. debt and why that is important. Check out who is number 12 on the list!

“it’s important to know just who owns our debt, not just for domestic reasons, but because it deeply affects foreign policy and international relations. Who does the U.S. have to compromise itself for? Without further ado, here’s the 15 biggest holders of U.S. debt:

15. Russia – 128.1 billion

14. Depository Institutions – 145.4 billion

13. Hong Kong – 146.2 billion

12. Brazil – 157.1 billion”
