NYU economist says US downgrade could come this weekend
Lawrence White, an economics professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, tells Reuters Insider a downgrade of the U.S. AAA credit rating could come as soon as this weekend. White said a downgrade was not 100 percent certain, but now looks highly likely.
I’d say (the chances) are pretty good, but not a certainty. If I had to bet, I’d bet that they will do a downgrade.
