Quote Of The Day — Treasury Bonds Lose AAA Status?

by Brad Warbiany

Well, that’s what the S&P rating service is discussing, but they do point out one crucial point allowing them to retain their place:

“As an advanced economy with almost no foreign currency debt — and with the ability to continue to borrow in its own currency — the U.S. ratings face little threat in the foreseeable future.”

That must be nice. I wish I could simply print money to pay off my debts…

A little lesson about government– If I could print money to pay off my debts, I’d worry a lot less about my spending habits. That incentive doesn’t change just because Congress makes the decision.
