    It’s not that the Muni’s will default. It’s the Muni’s will raise taxes and fees on the individual to cover their default, who in turn will reduce his consumer demand for “Chinese junk”, lose his job, and generally fall from the middle class and into bankruptcy and government dependency.

    All this economic talk is an exercise in “kicking the can down the road”. JM Kenyes told you as much: “In the long run, we are all dead.”
