ABC News: The Costs of the Government Shutdown
The 16-day government shutdown is over, but the country has taken at least a $24 billion hit along the way.
The financial ratings agency Standard & Poor’s said Wednesday the shutdown “to date has taken $24 billion out of the economy,” equaling $1.5 billion dollars a day and “shaved at least 0.6 percent off annualized fourth-quarter 2013 GDP growth.”
These estimates are for the overall economy, taking into account not just federal wages and productivity, but all the ripple effects and costs as well.
