Dark Belgian Chocolate

In his  article, Who Is The New Secret Buyer Of U.S. Debt?, Brandon Smith tries to solve one of the mysteries of recent events in financial markets: the enormous increase in US Treasury Bonds reserves held by Belgium. As you can appreciate in the chart above, Belgium has, in a few months, increased its reserves of US Treasury Bonds by more than 70%. This, for a country like Belgium, does not make any sense and it is suspected that those bonds belong to somebody else. Mr. Smith floats the theory that the real buyers of US Bonds would be the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), as part of a long term plan to displace the US Dollar and introduce the IMFs Special Drawing Rights (SDR) as the New World Order’s new global currency. Of course, he cannot prove his case, but the article is interesting nevertheless.
