As yields go higher what will this do to the economy? the market? http://bigpicture.typepad.com/ "Diversification Away From US Treasuries and Dollars: The Chinese are seeking ways to diversify their $1.2 trillion in foreign reserves; Middle Eastern Oil Countries are doing so also; Japan may soon follow. Most of these regions (Asia, Europe, Middle East) remain net purchasers of U.S. Treasurys, but at a somewhat slower rate. It doesn't require heavy selling to push yields higer, merely slowing the purchases of our massive debt sends yields upwards."
