THE Saudi Arabian government has threatened to sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets should the US Congress pass a bill that could hold the kingdom responsible for any role in the September 11, 2001 attacks, the New York Times reports. The newspaper reported that Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir told US politicians last month that “Saudi Arabia would be forced to sell up to $US750 billion in Treasury securities and other assets in the United States before they could be in danger of being frozen by American courts.” http://www.news.com.au/world/north-...l/news-story/0c2f6cf2bdd62b8380d5c84ae2d88be2 Would such a big player exiting the US financial system could cause a run? Are they that big? though maybe nearly a trillion dollars is not that much anymore? last time I looked the US debt was about 17 trillion.
