    Publius3, we agree that market liquidity is economically very valuable in and of itself.
    Regardless of what you believe, nations’ balances of their global trade are not particularly related to their nation’s volumes of domestic investing or wealth transferences.

    Although nations’ balances of global trade are unrelated to the ease or difficulty to liquidate assets within their nation, I would suppose that if it’s significantly more difficult to liquidate assets within a nation, it’s likely that difficulty would affect many of not most commercial transactions.

    USA’s global trade transactions are not particularly more than other commercial transactions affected by, or affect upon the ease or difficulty to liquidate assets within the USA.
    The ease or difficulty to liquidate assets within the USA are determined by our laws, regulations, and general commercial practices rather than by our annual global trade deficits.

    It's bad enough that most of my property taxes are used to send other people's kids to school, Sanders now wants me to pay for their college aswell.
    You should feel honored that you are contributing to educating today's young people to be tomorrow's leaders in America rather than they remain an uneducated group with nothing to offer anyone in their later years only to have to depend on the government for their existence instead of being self-sustaining through their good education.

    The investment is made in dollars, there is an inference from that that you are simply not drawing. These are dollars that they are not spending on our merchandise exports.

    What did you mean when you wrote, “These are dollars that they are not spending on our merchandise exports”?

    Well that's ultimately what causes them, inter alia, foreigners deciding to spend the dollars they earn on something OTHER than our exports. If they did, we'd have balanced trade, they don't, therefore there's a trade deficit.

    Of course this comes full circle that this is somehow 'bad' for the economy, ie that unless a foreigner spends export earnings on our exports that we are somehow 'losing' -- of course we can see that foreigners deciding to use it for other things has a beneficial impact on the US economy itself.
