The Fallout of Countries Dumping U.S. Bonds- Video Transcription
Several months ago, we talk specifically about why countries were dumping U.S. Treasury bonds and U.S. debt as a whole. As we continued our process of reviewing what countries were continuing to sell off U.S. Treasury bonds and who is currently the biggest buyer. According to the Treasury's international capital report, the flow currently shows that Brazil in August is the biggest buyer, followed by Ireland and France. Even though these are small countries, the buying does not match the amount that's currently being sold. The concern is now that the bigger countries are continuing to dump U.S. Treasuries.

It means that the global reduction of U.S. currency continues.
