    Silver lining

    The government shutdown may be an opportunity to make a killing on stocks and bonds. If past crises are a predictor of this one, then once it ends stocks will take off and make significant gains. Investing in U.S. government bonds during the shutdown while they gain and stocks lose and then dumping them after the shutdown ends is smart pool. As long as there is no default, that is, of course. The Wall Street fat cats will not allow that to happen. The tea party congressmen will obey their Wall Street mentors on this manmade crisis. It’s not about “Obamacare” after all, is it?
