The Art of Not Making a Deal
Absent a deal, the American economy will dramatically change on January 1, 2013. A package of tax increases and spending cuts totaling $607,000,000,000 kick in and everyone in Washington D.C. will run around with their hair on fire. Of course, this is only if there is a world after December 21 when the Mayans may or may not have decided we will cease to exist. Betting on there will be a thing called December 22, it might be worth the modern man’s time to know just what’s at stake and why getting a deal done to prevent this calamity is no sure thing.
