The United States international asset and liability position: a comparison of flow of funds and Commerce department presentations
Abstract: This paper presents a detailed description of how the Flow of Funds' foreign sector asset and liability account is derived. The statistics found in the Flow of Funds' (FOF) foreign sector are related to the Commerce Department's U.S. International Investment Position (IIP) tabulation; a survey of information sources for the foreign sector shows how these data are largely reconcilable with the Commerce Department's IIP. A second section of the paper, based on these statistics, offers some observations about recent developments in the United States' net international investment position.
