La Follette Proffesor Menzie Chinn on the U.S. Downgrade by S&P

La Follette Professor Menzie Chinn recently wrote and op-ed piece for the New Times on the recent downgrade of the U.S.’ AAA credit rating by S&P. He remarks that the downgrade has more to do with the politics framing the debt debate in the U.S. more so than the technical ability of the U.S. to pay its debts.
