Not since 1933, when Germany unilaterally decided to renege on debt, has a western power pulled the plug on what it owed. Yet, President Obamaâ??s administration and House Republicans are still at loggerheads about raising the countryâ??s looming debt ceiling. Should the deadline for borrowing authority on Oct. 17 come to pass, without at least a stopgap measure, it could â??bring the $5 trillion market in Treasury-backed loans to a halt,â?ť according to Bloomberg.com.  And that could mark the beginning of a worldwide war on market stability.  Letâ??s hope not.
