US Government Shutdown: Will It Affect The US Economy?

At the time of writing, we’re now 34 days into the partial US government shutdown, which makes it the longest in history.
Recent shutdowns have been a consequence of political jostling between Congress and the White House. Despite that jostling, a compromise was always found.
But this shutdown feels a little different. With a Democrat-led House vehemently opposed to President Trump’s request for border wall funding, the markets are now pondering the economic impact of a prolonged shutdown.
