This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich

One week after the government shutdown began, the finger-pointing continues while a new deadline looms even larger—10 more days until a potential U.S. government default. While many are still calling it "extremely unlikely" there seems to be consensus in that it would be "a catastrophe." Meanwhile, many of the Congressional hearings were cancelled or postponed last week and the handful scheduled for this week look to be more focused on the blame game than anything else. Like last week, the following hearings may be postponed—so be sure to check the committee websites for last-minute updates.
