How dangerous is the U.S. current account deficit?

Cletus Coughlin (), Michael Pakko () and William Poole ()

The Regional Economist, 2006, issue Apr, 4-9

Abstract: Although this deficit has been rising steadily since the early 1990s, a "hard landing" for the U.S. economy is unlikely. One reason is that only in the United States can so many foreigners invest so much money and get such good returns.
