Monday Morning Meeting Notes (01/23/2023)

General Info:

  • The debt ceiling saga has begun and will likely continue to be in the news until resolved
  • The debt ceiling is more of a political bargaining chip than a genuine default concern; for context, the debt ceiling has been raised 22 times over the last 25 years and more than 100 times since World War II, so it’s far from an infrequent event
  • U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen estimated that the Treasury can utilize certain measures to continue paying external obligations until June if the debt ceiling isn’t raised by then
  • Fun Fact: Cleveland was originally spelled “Cleaveland” until 1831 when a newspaper, The Cleveland Advertiser, shortened the city’s name to fit it on the newspaper’s masthead
