Is anyone eager for another debt-ceiling crisis? Probably not. But just in case, the Congressional Budget Office wants us to know that we'll likely bump up against another debt-ceiling deadline at some point between March and June of next year:
So mark your calenders for March. Of course, it's always possible that Congress will get tired of these showdowns and simply raise the debt ceiling again before markets start getting jittery — in which case, no need to worry.
By the way, if you need a reminder of what the debt ceiling is and what happens if we "breach" it, see our comprehensive explainer.
Update: Alternatively, if it's apocalyptic scenarios you're after, check out this insane chart from the OECD's Global Economic Outlook, which shows the organization's estimate of what would happen if Congress failed to lift the debt ceiling for an entire year. Calamity ensues:
Now, very few analysts here in the U.S. think that Congress would fail to lift the debt ceiling for a whole year (the truly dire scenarios usually involve a short breach). Still, the OECD seems to be worried enough that they now rank the United States as a greater threat to the global economy than the slow-moving economic disaster that is the euro zone.
