  • Sovereign Default: Putting the United States’ Debt-Ceiling Debate in Context – Why Self Help Is the Only Option: “Justia columnist and U. Washington law professor Anita Ramasastry provides important background on the United States’ debt ceiling debate, explaining exactly why the United States—unlike other countries – has only one option when the risk of sovereign default looms: self help.
