"The U.S. government is close to hitting its debt ceiling, and while much is said about protecting the 'full faith and credit' of the United States, this is a sideshow since all the government must do to avoid default is to meet interest payments. In all events, the lack of a plan to control government spending poses a much greater threat to America’s credit standing than uncertainty over whether the debt limit will be raised." (07/06/11)
