Cash levels at the US Treasury are down toward a dangerously low level

Cash levels at the US trseasurt are going down toward a dangerously low level because Washington are still struggling to raise the debt ceiling until the last minutes.

As of May 25, Treasury had just USD 38.8 billion in cash and earing the bare minimum level of USD 30 billion. If Congress doesn’t raise the debt ceiling by June 5, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warns the US government will not have enough funds to pay all of the nation’s obiligations in full and on time, in another word – Default.

截至 5 月 25 日,财政部手头上只有 388 亿美元的现金,距离最低现金水平 300 亿美元只差一点点。如果国会不能在 6 月 5 日之前提高债务上限,美国财政部部长耶伦警告,美国政府将没有足够的资金来按时全额支付或部分支付国家债务的债息,换句话说——债务违约。
