Government shutdown poses increasing risk to wider economy

The shutdown’s biggest effects on the economy are likely to be the cutback in federal spending and consumer spending. Reports indicate that were the shutdown to drag on through March, annual economic growth could fall to zero in the first three months of the year. With no signs of a breakthrough, an estimated 800,000 government employees are set to miss a second paycheck on Friday.
