    As to your link it makes several assumptions I find dubious:

    That Japan, the Eurozone and or the UK will not implode first making the US golden for perhaps the rest of the year.

    That no member of BRIC will simply go into revolution I find this doubtful too.

    That the Vermont secession movement will not take hold and permit most of the country to secede leaving the debts somebody else's problem (White vs. Texas after the civil war included wording in the SCOTUS that stated if a majority of states wanted to they could secede.)

    Even at only a 10% probability for each of those 8 events and that is very conservative that still leaves the probabilty of an intact US going down the toilet kind of low.

    What the government says is still believed by the majority of Americans. The sudden drop in the Unemployment Rate to 9.7% will work to lessen the present panic, and we might even see the stock market rally, only to fall at a later date.
