Tonight’s Campus Question
 
Top Republican economists have said that a default from failing to raise the debt ceiling would be an “economic disaster” yet they are still encouraging Republicans in Congress to extract as many concessions as possible before August 2nd. Should these economists advocate instead for raising the debt ceiling now rather than risk harm to credit ratings as the deadline approaches?
 

Good evening and fist bumps! (but feel free to ::hugggg:: amongst yourselves).
