Safe Havens


SAFE HAVENS….Via Felix Salmon, here’s some interesting news: Moody’s has decided that not all AAA sovereign debt is created equal.    Here’s how things shake out:

  • AAA-Worst: Ireland, Spain
  • AAA-Middle: United States, UK
  • AAA-Best: Germany, France, Canada, Scandinavia

I wonder what it would take for the United States to be downgraded into the Ireland/Spain category?

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
