It wont be a big deal. if all countries are downgraded so that AA or whatever becomes the highest that any country has, then that will be the new triple A. double A will be the new triple A. Its all relative.

Yes, our debt maturity profile is much longer than the USA so perhaps we have survived tll now because we don't have to roll-over so much debt.

However, we are running an astonishing defecit which adds to the debt each year and our economy just is not growing.

Not so sure. For all of Britain's woes, it is still for some bizarre reason, seen as the bedrock of world finances. The symbolic trauma of this would send shock waves fore sure. They may be temporary, but I'm sure it would be a big deal.

ThanKS OP. Don't see anything there that refers to either a 'downgrade' or 'tonight' though. They are talking the long term outlook. Anything pointing to the specifics you mentioned about downgrading and tonight?

Not sure I really credit this story with much substance, probably just another internet Chinese whisper type thing, but if I do recall correctly a trader put a huge bet on a massive downturn just a week or so ago.

B.S.
USA economy went through the roof into orbit after WW2. They invested trillions in GOLD from the treasury during WW2 into manufacturing capacity and industry infrastructure. After WW2 this capacity was turned to civilian products such as passenger planes, cars, trucks, boats, and other goods.

You reap what you sow.

Borrowing loans from private banks at interest isnt going to do jack shit for the future of an economy. LMFAO at the stupidity of it all.
