Economist Mark Zandi told CBS’s Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer today that the government shutdown is going to continue to knee-cap the economy for the foreseeable future:
While some of the $24 billion of lost economic activity during the shutdown will be recovered, the inability of businesses and consumers to plan for more than a couple months at a time is “corrosive” to the economy.
“Pervading the entire economy is this uncertainty, which I think the effects of that are corrosive, have been accumulating over the past few years,” Zandi said. “And obviously given the nature of the deal is we’re going to take this into next year, will continue.”
That’s great news for Republicans.
And, one theory on the mystery of the disappearance of JFK’s brain has been put forward all these years later, as we approach the 50th anniversary of the assassination. Couldn’t have been a clean getaway.
