How A Government Shutdown Would Affect Small Businesses

How A Government Shutdown Would Affect Small Businesses | Current Events | Scoop.it
As the U.S. government could be headed for its first shutdown since 1995, small-business owners are divided on the matter.

Courtney Simonson's insight:

   The government shutdown has caused a lot of people and businesses to lose money. Surprisingly this shutdown  is costing 1.6 billion dollars a week, 300 million dollars a day, and 12.5 million dollars an hour. Also, 800,000 federal workers arent working. To us, the does teems like a lot, but really this money is only a couple thousandths percents of the total GDP. 

   The article does give evidence that this isn't actually a lot of money compared to our GDP, but there isn't really any room to lose more money in this country. We already have national debt, so it's hard to think that we are losing even more money than our national debt. There may be a necessity for a shutdown, but it's hard to imagine we are losing money with this shutdown, when the government should just try to work together.

I agree with Courtney that the article does give evidence that this isn't actually a lot of money compared to our GDP. I find it unnecessary to lose more money than our national debt. We are pretty much making our debt even deeper down the hole. It doesn't even seem like we are losing more money than our national debt. The government should be able to fix this problem.
