BIS discovers $14 trillion of dollar debt offshore, hidden in ‘footnotes’ 

The world’s top financial watchdog has uncovered $14 trillion of global dollar debt hidden in derivatives and swap contracts, a startling sum that doubles the underlying levels of offshore dollar credit in the international system.
