OK, we all have heard this quote. Would someone who is an economist or at least an armchair economist tell me what will happen if the US defaults. I keep being told it won't happen. Maybe it won't. But what if it did? What kind of civil unrest would this generate? Who would it bring down along with the prez? The white power structure? Who would dance in the streets to see the US in this mess? Would there be any country on the planet who would pitch in the way we have for other countries? Why would a president be so resolute as to say he didn't care if it brings down his presidency?
