الدين القومي الأميركي

Graphic News

January 11, 2019 -- The U.S. national debt soared from $.29 trillion at the start of the financial crisis to almost $22 trillion at the beginning of 2019, more than $2 trillion higher than when President Donald Trump took office.

The U.S. government, the Federal Reserve and pension funds own around 40 per cent of the national debt, while another 40 per cent is held by foreign governments and investors, according to the U.S. Treasury.

Foreign governments, led by the Chinese and Japanese, owned $6.6 trillion. Those two countries have cut their stakes since 2015, but each state still holds more than $1 trillion worth of Treasury bonds and notes.

The nation’s debt climbed to a record $21.93 trillion at the start of 2019, a seven per cent increase from January 2018.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
