With the worst recession in the history of the world, global markets are struggling to find their footing.
The Dow Jones industrial average has lost nearly 6,500 points since the start of this week, while stocks have lost nearly 5,000 points.
But with so much uncertainty, many people are looking for answers.
Here are three of the biggest questions that are on everyone’s minds.
What happens if the US doesn’t pass the healthcare reform bill?
The most important question is, will it happen?
If it does, it will mean a dramatic reduction in the amount of money the US spends on health care and a huge increase in the number of people without insurance.
The healthcare bill was supposed to cut out the insurance companies.
However, it only does so much, as it will allow states to opt out of certain provisions, which will mean fewer people will be covered by insurance.
In a sense, the healthcare bill is already a law of the land, with the Congressional Budget Office estimating that about 20 million people would lose insurance if it passes, according to Reuters.
What about the US’s debt?
While it is still unclear whether the US will be able to avoid a debt default, experts are starting to see some of the potential risks.
The US Treasury has warned that it could default on the debt by June 30 if the healthcare legislation isn’t passed, according the Financial Times.
And many experts have raised concerns that the US could be forced to raise the interest rates it charges on its debt in order to make up for the healthcare spending cuts.
What if the debt crisis worsens?
Another looming question is how the healthcare crisis will impact the US economy in the short term.
Many people think that the healthcare cuts will lead to a sharp slowdown in economic growth and an increase in unemployment.
However in reality, it could lead to some positive effects, experts say.
In the past, countries with weak economies were able to cut spending and stimulate the economy.
This time around, the US may not have that option.
What is the economic outlook for the US?
The US economy has been doing quite well in recent years.
However the recent economic downturn has caused some concern.
In addition to the healthcare bills, there is also the potential for other big economic problems to surface.
The Federal Reserve and the US government have said that the economy is in a recession and the jobless rate is expected to rise, but this isn’t something that is likely to happen overnight.
The US is still relatively insulated from the financial turmoil in the eurozone and Japan, but there are concerns about the financial markets in Europe.
According to Reuters, a major European bank recently said that investors are worried about the stability of the US stock market.
Are there any other economic indicators that are worrying?
The financial markets are still relatively safe from the healthcare problems.
Many economists are concerned that the global economy could become even more fragile as healthcare cuts continue.
However it is also worth noting that the number one cause of economic downturns in the world is over-investment, not healthcare cuts.
