In 2007, before the crisis broke out, the debt in all the countries of the organization represented 49.5% of GDP and at that time Japan’s sovereign bonds accounted for 39% of the total of those traded in Japan. the market of the whole OECD, and the Americans 20%.

In 2018, the relative weight of US securities had increased to 39%, while that of the Japanese had decreased to 26%. (EFE) .-
