“We absolutely cannot protect the economy from a debt default…. The reserve currency is determined by investors around the world. They are voting on which economy they have most confidence in. Debt ceiling standoffs erode confidence.” –Neel Kashkari, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis
“It’s time for lawmakers to end the drama and come to terms and increase the debt limit. There has been little economic fallout from the political back and forth so far. But that is set to change quickly.” –Mark Zandi, Chief Economist of Moody’s Analytics
Rights & Warrants:
Stock rights are instruments issued by companies to allow existing shareholders to maintain their ownership stake. The subscription price of rights is usually offered at a discounted rate compared to the current market value, and the maturity period is typically short-term (30-45 days).
Similarly, warrants grant holders the option to purchase the issuer's common stock at a predetermined price (subscription price) in the future. Warrants often have a long maturity period, sometimes spanning several years or even having a perpetual life. The subscription price for warrants is typically set higher than the current market price of the stock. Both rights and warrants can be traded on the open market.
