    Thursday File 10-10-2013

    File Name: Thursday File 10-10-2013 File Submitter: bencosmef File Submitted: 10 Oct 2013 File Category: Thursday Files Resolution: Latin America Just when it looked like there was no real hope for a politics DA a new proposal is being thrown out to avoid the debt ceiling, and this week our file is up to date on that situation. An 11th hour proposal to raise the debt ceiling temporarily (about 6 weeks) to make time for negotiations and avoid default is now on the table. The proposal itself generated strong gains in the stock market proving just how viable resolving the debt ceiling is. This file was made by not only a great debate mind but also someone who actually works as a Capitol Hill staffer right now. Find out more about the author and file below. While you might think that the government shutdown means that no politics scenario really has any impact the debt ceiling is really what has been moving markets. The markets went up even after the shutdown; it was only when there was talk about defaulting that they really reacted. The impact scenario for debt ceiling is still very real. Obama actually gave a press conference this week where he indicated that a lot of the executive workarounds are not legally viable damaging a lot of affirmative answers. Finally, it could never be a better time for the link scenario, how bizarre would it be for Obama to try and inject discussions about Latin America into the current debate, he already cancelled 1 foreign policy trip for this very reason. This week's author is Francisco Becosme, he debated at Wake Forest University where he appeared in the octofinals of Harvard, Texas, and GSU, and was invited to participate in the prestigious Pittsburgh Round Robin. Currently, he is a capitol hill staffer who actually works in this area every day. He has in the past helped the Bronx Science team and has coached numerous successful high school teams.

    Thursday File 10-10-2013

    Version

    Just when it looked like there was no real hope for a politics DA a new proposal is being thrown out to avoid the debt ceiling, and this week our file is up to date on that situation. An 11th hour proposal to raise the debt ceiling temporarily (about 6 weeks) to make time for negotiations and avoid default is now on the table. The proposal itself generated strong gains in the stock market proving just how viable resolving the debt ceiling is. This file was made by not only a great debate mind but also someone who actually works as a Capitol Hill staffer right now. Find out more about the author and file below. While you might think that the government shutdown means that no politics scenario really has any impact the debt ceiling is really what has been moving markets. The markets went up even after the shutdown; it was only when there was talk about defaulting that they really reacted. The impact scenario for debt ceiling is still very real. Obama actually gave a press conference this week where he indicated that a lot of the executive workarounds are not legally viable damaging a lot of affirmative answers. Finally, it could never be a better time for the link scenario, how bizarre would it be for Obama to try and inject discussions about Latin America into the current debate, he already cancelled 1 foreign policy trip for this very reason. This week's author is Francisco Becosme, he debated at Wake Forest University where he appeared in the octofinals of Harvard, Texas, and GSU, and was invited to participate in the prestigious Pittsburgh Round Robin. Currently, he is a capitol hill staffer who actually works in this area every day. He has in the past helped the Bronx Science team and has coached numerous successful high school teams.
