James Turk: Update On The Gold Fundamentals

Another item mentioned in the video (an item I've talked about many times) is the deficit to outlay ratio. The U.S. is spending money which is borrowed for 40% on average from foreigners.

The latest data on deficit to outlay ratio in August 2012 shows that we borrowed 52% from foreigners to spend on our U.S. programs (medicare, social security, defence, pensions, education...):
