In yet another sign that the debt markets are becoming occupied with additional investors, Japanese buyers contributed to the growing U.S. debt — both corporate and government — by buying U.S. bonds and issues in May 2003. The heavy buying is contrary to some market speculations that overseas investors would not buy U.S. bonds due to the declining value of the dollar, which would in turn produce higher yields for Treasurys and cause some pricing volatility among corporate bond issuers. According to Japanese Ministry of Finance figures, Japanese buyers acquired roughly $2.5 billion in fresh bonds, about 75% of which were from U.S. issuers.
