A few words about transparency
Um, there still not enough. Treasury issued $461.7 Billion in debt in 2010 Q1, of which only $174.3 B has been accounted for on the Treasury’s quarterly bulletin (Table OFS-2). I hate to be the one pointing this out, but that leaves $287.4 B unaccounted for (62%). Treasury had more than two months to prepare the report.
