    What would happen if the Ceiling is raised and what would happen if it is not???

    I'm curious as to what would happen to bonds, gold, silver, commodities, U.S. company stocks, inflation, etc, etc..

    Not much would happen for a while.
    Taller debts could walk around with a taller ceiling that is about it.
    The loss of jobs is what is taking us down for the longterm.

    Stocks would crash.

    Gold would spike then crash.

    In the last two shutdowns stocks went up. Marketwatch has a piece on the subject.

    The thing that will happen is black marketing if the prices will go high , tycon traders will stop the transition of the goods to the market and will stock them until the prices are raised and than sale them at the new price . In short , STOCK WILL BE CRASHED . this way or that .

    Any threat of a default by the US government would be enormously negative for stocks.

    Newt played this game in the mid 1990s and ended up resigning in shame after his party lost the congress in the next election.

    They just teased at this mess.


    These idiots are truely STUPID enough to do this.

    Dear idiot, the debt ceiling has always been raised.

    We have never defaulted on it

    Not much because there are provisions that would continue the government....I believe...10 months if I remember correctly.
    We shouldn't be concentrating on the debt ceiling, we should be concentrating on what got is there in the first place - and correct that.
