The International Monetary Fund is warning today that the global economy will face a shock if the United States doesn’t sort out an impending mess as the government reaches the limit on borrowing.  The debt ceiling is the talk of Wall Street, but it isn’t leading to much movement in share prices today. Juli Nieman, an analyst at Smith Moore and Company, tells us what Wall Street is saying.
