External debt ratios United States

United States external debt is slightly less than 100% of GDP, and about eight fold the value of annual exports. Considering that the USA can easily finance most of external debt by giving US dollars to creditors, external debt is not a threat comparable to, on one hand, government debt that is about 105% of GDP, and, on the other hand, the risk that international US-dollar holders start demanding conversion of their dollar reserves into other currencies.
