每日新闻更新 - 特朗普与债务天花板 The Daily Update - Trump and the debt ceiling

我们在伦敦要进入一个漫长的周末,今天先来说些零碎的事。昨天是维苏威火山爆发周年纪念,在公元79年维苏威火山爆发,吞噬了庞贝、斯塔比亚和赫库兰尼姆城。

由于即将周末和公共假日,加之美联储主席耶伦和欧洲银行行长德拉吉将分别于英国夏令时下午3点和晚上8点在杰克逊霍尔会议上发表讲话,市场交易价格持保守态势。

美国总统特朗普继续在推特上评论债务天花板的问题,昨天晚上他指责共和党控制的国会“本应该非常容易,但现在一团糟”。但白宫发言人瑞恩听上去很乐观,债务上限将提升。

评级机构惠誉已经提出警告,如果国会无法在提高债务上限的最后期限之前达成共识,目前评级为AAA的美国可能面临降级风险。“如果债务限制不能在所谓的‘某个日期’前及时提高,惠誉将审核美国主权债务评级,可能导致消极影响。”

需要在十月份第一周之前提高债务上限,这样才能避免出现2013年10月份延续了16天的政府关门问题。据预测,如果不提高债务上限,到10月2日大概有810亿美元的债务需要支付给军事退休基金,这将成为政府再次关门的催化剂。

国会假期要到9月5日才结束,所以接下来6个周可能会有些艰难。

最后说一些小插曲。

1875年的今天,27岁的商船船长Matthew Webb成为第一个成功游过英吉利海峡的人。他在21小时45分钟内穿越了21英里的海面,但由于潮汐流的原因,他实际游了39英里。1991年舒马赫在比利时大奖赛的斯帕赛道上首次参加一级方程式赛车,多年后他也是在这里在跑第一圈的时候因为离合器的问题而退役。
