In the US, estimated losses from “shutdown”

В США подсчитали убытки от "шатдауна"What damages will tolerate the US economy.

Partial government shutdown would reduce US GDP by about 0.1 percent every two weeks.

About it reports Bloomberg with reference to the Chairman of the Council of economic advisers the White house Kevin Hassett.

“According to our estimates, GDP in the first quarter could decline by about one-tenth, if it (a partial closure of the government – NV) will be decided in the next few weeks,” said Hassett.

According to him, the economic consequences of the “shutdown” will be mitigated as dismissed civil servants will receive wage arrears only after the settlement of the situation with the budget. But some economic indicators will be lost due to the suspension of the work of governmental institutions.

Hassett not expect a large economic effect, provided that the “shutdown” will be over relatively quickly.

In the US, the leaders of the parties did not agree with trump about the end of the “shutdown”.

From midnight on December 22 (07:00 on Kiev) started the partial government shutdown for lack of money. One of the reasons was disagreement over financing for the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico.
