Un impago de la deuda EE.UU. causaría un crash en la bolsa de valores de Dow Jones, podría causar un crash en el mercado de bonos, causaría los tipos de interés se disparan salvajemente fuera de control, podría causar una crisis crediticia masiva, y causaría un pánico derivados que sería absolutamente sin precedentes. Y eso sería sólo el comienzo. Pero no tome mi palabra para ella. Estas son las cosas que los mejores expertos financieros de todo el planeta están diciendo que sucederá si hay un incumplimiento de la deuda EE.UU.
12 consecuencias del impago de la deuda de USA para la economia global:
#1 Gerald Epstein, a professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst: "If the US does default, that will make the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy look like a cakewalk"
#2 Tim Bitsberger, a former Treasury official under President George W. Bush: "If we miss an interest payment, that would blow Lehman out of the water"
#3 Peter Tchir, founder of New York-based TF Market Advisors: "Once the system starts to break down related to settlement and payments, then liquidity disappears, as we saw after Lehman"
#4 Bill Isaac, chairman of Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bancorp: "We can’t even imagine all the things that might happen, just like Henry Paulson couldn’t imagine all the bad things that might happen if he let Lehman go down"

#6 Richard Bove, VP of research at Rafferty Capital Markets: "If they seriously default on the debt, what we're really talking about is a depression"

#11 Warren Buffett about the potential of a debt default: "It should be like nuclear bombs, basically too horrible to use"
#12 Bloomberg: "Anyone who remembers the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. little more than five years ago knows what a global financial disaster is. A U.S. government default, just weeks away if Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling as it now threatens to do, will be an economic calamity like none the world has ever seen."
