    • 5. Capital inflows of 11 per cent of U.S. income cover the U.S. current account deficit of six per cent and U.S. investments abroad of five per cent. The net U.S. external debt of 28 per cent of GDP is made up, in fact, of 108 per cent of GDP in liabilities counterbalanced by 80 per cent of GDP in foreign assets.
    • 6. As U.S. interest rates on domestic assets rise, payments abroad on assets purchased by foreign citizens are likely to rise. Until recently, payments to U.S. citizens on foreign assets approximated payments to foreign citizens owning U.S. assets. However, payments on U.S. liabilities are likely to exceed income inflows from U.S.-owned assets abroad (see Godley and Izurieta, 2005).
