Instability in the political sphere always ripples through the markets. The GOP, for reasons beyond all comprehension, have decided to negatively affect the US economy.
Market Prediction below.
The Stock Market will lose 500 points by the end of today. I base this prediction on the effect of the government shutdown of 1995.
Say good bye to economic recovery.
Say good bye to any job growth.
Say good bye to infrastructure renewal and upgrade.
I am somewhat pleased with the fortitude of Democrats. I do feel that if some of this fortitude were used earlier, i.e. less caving, that a showdown resulting in a government shutdown would not be necessary. I will also say that it is impossible to know how to deal with whiney, selfish, GOP assholes.
What is your Stock Market Prediction???
