  • U.S. Deficit At Zero In December 2012 0 comments
    Jan 18, 2013 3:40 PM

    The U.S. has done a good job in the month of December 2012. Its outlays of $270 billion were fully absorbed by receipts of $270 billion which makes the December 2012 deficit zero (Chart 1).

    I think most of this is due to the fact that the debt ceiling was reached in December, so the U.S. couldn't spend as much money as it could.
