Foreign Ownership of America: A Matter of Concern
Department or Administrative Unit
The increasing foreign ownership of US assets has been causing serious concern among many Americans. Such ownership, to them, poses a threat to America's national security, if not to its political and economic sovereignty. Yet, even if foreign ownership of US assets were substantially higher than American assets abroad, it should not be a mailer of serious concern. Much of the inflows of foreign capital have been adding to the domestic capital stock, significantly contributing to the American standard of living and enhancing the country's ability to service its international indebtednesses. Thus, the benefits of foreign investment appear to far outweigh the costs in an increasingly interdependent world.
