The Nightly World News Report of the 16th of November 2012

Written on the 27th of October 2012

Since you spoke about taxes, it let me get credit for researching what a sliding scale of taxes is. A sliding scale of taxes was proposed in California, so I want to know what it is. I already chose that taxes are not the solution, but I want to understand it anyways. says that it is variable, meaning that it is not consistent but changing. It also means the higher the profit, the higher the tax. The proposed sliding scale tax is not changing over a period of time according to what I read, but the rate is different for each individual. In this way is the tax changing. Sliding for me makes it sound like it may be going down a hill, increasing in velocity over time upon potential energy. It seems a lot more complicated in its name.
The second thing that I wanted to research is how much China is buying our bonds; although, our rates are extremely low. Reading an article, I see that China is still increasing their ownership of our debt. In this past “July, Chinese investors increased their holdings by $2.6 billion to $1.15 trillion;” however, 165 billion dollars of the ownership of our debt was sold about June of 2011. Doing more research, “slightly more than 21 percent of all the debt owned by foreign entities [is by China]. About one year ago, Chinese owners held just less than 27 percent of all foreign-owned U.S. government debt.” This peak was 1314.9 billion dollar. Japan is even with China in ownership of our debt. Mainland China owns $1149.6 billion dollars, and Japan owns $1117.1 billion dollars at this moment. These statistics were an updated today.
Japan has a history of owning a lot of our debt, and China has only taken their spot as the leading owner in the past couple years. I am talking about Treasury Securities. Japan owned about 38% of our foreign debt in 2004.
The increase in the percentage of Chinese foreign ownership has been consistent for the first 9 years or so of the 21st century; then it jumped 5 percent in 2009. It increased from 6% to 22% pretty consistently from 2000-2007. I don’t believe that China owns too much of our debt. In total it is about 7 percent of our public debt. It is a lot, but we own more than half of our own government’s debt.
