Super Committee: Go Big or Go Home?

posted 11/23/2011 in General

Market Commentary Highlights...
  • With no debt ceiling, default or downgrade threat, the market impact of this week's public unveiling of the super committee's recommendations is likely to be muted relative to the debt ceiling debacle of late July and early August.
  • Congress' record-low 9% approval rating reflects the low bar of expectations for the super committee. The market expects the default cuts of $1.2 trillion will do the bulk of generating the required savings.
  • Even with no agreement from the super committee, an end-of-year deal may still take place that may pair a smaller deficit reduction package of a few hundred billion dollars with the extension of the expiring payroll tax cut and federal unemployment benefits.
