External debt ratios United States

United States external debt is slightly less than 100% of GDP, and more than eight fold the value of annual exports. Considering that the US 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 109% thereof, and, on the other hand, the risk of international holders of US dollars demanding conversion of their dollar reserves into other currencies.
