Mayan Calendar has nothing on this week

In the ever continuing saga that is our national debt and the government shutdown, I thought I would have a series of postings around the topic.  I have always loved economics since I was very young and continue to this day.  However, it's amazing how complex the topic is, how little you really know and fast moving the overall global aspects are. 

As it stands we are set to default on the 17th of October.  Yet, Goldman Sachs published a report saying, due to Treasury's balance it's actually around the 25th.  Regardless of which, everyone is expecting the market to tank hard as we get closer.  Thought I would share the analytics.
