      anything and everything cheap when the economy implodes as the cost of funds goes up.  When the credit rating is downgraded as a result of government inability to do their job, the economy will be crushed.

      A big thanks to corporate CEO's who have spent more money on special interest PAC's in exchange for tax exemptions and subsidies which they now realize have put our country in a very precarious position.

      Here's a preview for them, if the world ecomony tanks, their growth model goes out the window anyhow.  And, another clue, Americans are bled dry.  They cannot spend monies being sheltered or invested offshore.  If you really love your country, negotiate a deal to repatriate some of those monies you've been profiting on overseas.

      Economics 101:  If the GDP declines, growth declines.  People can't work with monies that are taken out of they system.  Realize that you've taken a vacuum to the US economy which has costs.
