Last Thursday, Secretary Geithner responded with 4 page letter to Majority Leader Reid, outlining dire consequences in the even of US default and insisting that Reid pursuade Congress to raise the ceiling for the statutory debt ceiling. I would expect that Congress will raise the debt ceiling,, just to keep the economy more or less functional as long as possible. However, doing this means that we will begin to print even more money, which in turn will mean that inflation will continue to rise.
