Off The Charts: No Surprise, Fed Was Biggest Buyer Of Treasuries In 2013 - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

The Federal Reserve financed most of the government’s deficit in 2013, in sharp contrast to the year before, when the Fed did not add to its holdings of Treasury securities. The American private sector appears to have been a net seller of Treasuries in 2013, but the foreign private sector was a substantial buyer, according to government estimates released this week. In 2013, the government issued a net $759 billion in Treasury securities to the public.
