As some of you may know, my left-brain deals with geeky economics, international trade and stuff like that. When I went back to college years ago after raising my sons, I majored in Mass Communications and dreamt of writing for The Economist. So there ya have it.
Anyway, watching (or rather tuning out to most of) the debt ceiling kabuki theater, a few tidbits got absorbed. Like this unappealing prediction from Credit Suisse should the U.S. actually go over the brink into full out default.
To those who claim nothing will happen, do you really want to risk it?
