Are there other, more impartial sources that are also saying the same thing Moody’s is?
Either the default situation is a serious issue or it is not. If it is, we should not be telling the public that having the shutdown continue through it is trivial. It needs to be addressed and dealt with properly.
Are there impartial observers saying the same thing Moody’s is saying?
the only other semi-impartial sources i have seen are various articles on forbes, bloomberg and the like with CEO’s of varying political stripes saying even a prioritized default would be devastating. I’m not saying it’s true. But i will say I’m sure as HELL not going to trust moody’s.
