Yup, says they will open full time at the beginning of next year

Basically says we have no idea what the impact of the shutdown will be but it's likely to be negligentnegligible.
He does point out that none of his analysis applies if the U.S. defaults
FTFY?

Also, I haven't reviewed the numbers, but wasn't the impact at the time of the default negligible as well? I seem to remember thinking that the market had already priced most of it in in the lead up to the default. Who knows if that's happening now as well.

Yup, fixed.
Who knows, but I suspect the markets will go haywire in the event of a default. Although, I really don't see them letting it happen

More power in the hands of the states? Maybe that's not a bad idea...

Can we help decide which government offices should STAY closed?

Aw man. I was actually fascinated to see what would happen (although I knew they would come to a deal)
Republicans blinked. Wouldn't it have been much better for their political standing to have done this weeks ago?

Not quite... It was agreed on between the leaders of both parties in the Senate, it still needs to pass a Senate vote (which it likely will) and then needs to be voted on by the House. This is definitely not a sure thing at this point.

True, I guess I jumped the gun based on the radio reports. Though, Cruz and others won't interfere so I see very little chance of a deal not being done.
