US treasuries and FATCA
The US has already defaulted on treasuries, as of July 1, 2014. Only 30%, but can 100 % be far behind?
Due to Fatca, retention of interest payments by 30%, to foreign entities began on July 1.
Didn't hear about it? The big money was selling out their position in treasuries. Why would they tell you before they were completely out?
