Reports are filtering in that US Congress has suspended the debt ceiling bill to 1 January 2025. The ink has not even dried on the bipartisan “tentative” deal to raise debt-ceiling, but given the long impasse preceding the agreement to suspend the bill, it is being viewed not only as a fragile move but also self-inflicted political brinkmanship that leaves the US greenback weakened and US national security threatened. The US corporate interests and the political elite on Capitol Hill have however breathed a sigh of relief that a potential politically catastrophic default on US debt repayments has been averted.
