July 29, 2011 | Debt Crisis Impact

:  The clock continues to tick towards a potentially calamitous government default.  Two plans are in the works that would increase the U.S. borrowing limit and chop $1 billion in federal spending. With a deadline approaching, financial markets are on edge and families are paying attention to see if they need to make changes in their budgets to cope with whatever happens.  Rick Casey talks with two experienced economists to get the global, national and the all-important local impact that could come from the conclusion of this debt debate.
