Key Quotes

“Normally the market would not question the US Treasuries capacity to borrow.  And it may be considered heretical to see the USD as other than a safe haven. However, this US fiscal expansion is especially risky, coming near the end of the business cycle, closer to a steepening demographic fiscal slope, and politics more partisan than ever.  It is hard to imagine how Congress could cope with even a minor economic or financial crisis.”
