  The Impact of Exchange Rate Movements on U.S. Foreign Debt - Federal Reserve Bank of New York
Although the net international investment position of the United States has fallen throughout the 1982-2001 period, the rate of the decline has increased sharply in recent years (Table 1).
This mechanical valuation effect accounts for nearly one-third of the deterioration of the net international investment position since the end of 1999—a sharp contrast with the past when valuation effects were either negligible or modestly advantageous.
The $50 billion average annual decline in the net international investment position between 1982 and 1990 (Table 1) can be decomposed into a $92 billion worsening from financial flows and a $42 billion improvement from valuation changes.

 CSO - EireStat - BPDA - International Investment Position (Annual) generated on 18MAY04   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Direct investment is a category of international investment that, based on an equity ownership of at least 10%, reflects a lasting interest by a resident in one economy (the direct investor) in an enterprise resident in another economy (the direct investment enterprise).
Once the direct investment relationship is established, all subsequent financial flows between the related entities are recorded as direct investment transactions, regardless of the type of financial instrument used in the financing arrangement (except for financial intermediary affiliates among which direct investment transactions are limited to those involving equity and permanent debt).
As examples, (i) investment in a foreign security should be reported and classified to the country of residence of the issuer of the security; (ii) a loan advanced to a non-resident borrower should be reported and classified to the country of residence of the borrower.

 How Dangerous is the U.S. Current Account Deficit? - Poole Speech - St. Louis Fed
When we bear this perspective in mind—that international capital flows are determined by investors’ efforts to allocate their capital most efficiently and not by passive financing of the current account—prospects for a painful current account adjustment in the future seem less likely.
Despite the fact that the U.S. international investment position at the end of 2004 was –$2.5 trillion, U.S. net income in 2004 on its investments abroad slightly exceeded income payments on foreign-owned assets in the United States.
For example, Australia’s negative net investment position reached 60 percent of GDP in the mid-1990s, Ireland’s exceeded 70 percent in the 1980s, and New Zealand accumulated a position amounting to nearly 90 percent of GDP in the late 1990s.

 Development of International Investment Position Statistics
IIP statistics are also among the items of information that members are required to report to the Fund under Article VIII, Section 5 of the Articles of Agreement.
As the IIP is a comprehensive framework covering the complete range of a country's external assets and liabilities, the source data requirements are so extensive that it is most often compiled on an annual basis.
The covering letter to national compilers would stress the growing importance of IIP statistics and emphasize that the objective should be to work toward compiling the data with the necessary detail depending on country circumstances and characteristics, and in line with the relevant statistical methodologies.

The international investment position can be likened to an individual who lists his financial assets and financial liabilities, ending up with a net balance either positive or negative.
We compared the net investment position to an individual listing his assets and liabilities to find whether he was a net creditor or debtor.
It is tempting to regard the negative net investment position as simply the consequence of our negative current account through the years.

 Valuation of the U.S. net international investment position Survey of Current Business - Find Articles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The article describes two alternative methods for valuing direct investment in prices of the current period, presents estimates of the direct investment totals for 1982-89 that are prepared using these methods, and compares these estimates with BEA's existing historical-cost estimates and with current-value estimates from several earlier studies.
Although many of the assets in the U.S. international investment position (such as portfolio investment and most reserve assets) were being valued at current-period prices, other assets (such as direct investment and U.S. gold reserves) were being valued at the historical costs at which they were purchased.
The BEA review focused on direct investment because the largest differences between historical and current costs in the international investment position were thought to have resulted from a significant nmisstatement of the relative positions for U.S. direct investment abroad (USDIA) and foreign direct investment in the United States (FDIUS).

 Balance of trade - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A positive balance of trade is known as a trade surplus and consists of exporting more than your imports; a negative balance of trade is known as a trade deficit or, informally, a trade gap.
Similarly, a surplus on the current account implies an increase in the net international investment position and the shifting of consumption to future rather than current generations.
The positive balance was partly the result of protectionist measures that also caused the price of goods in Japan to be much higher than they would have been, had imports been freely allowed.
