In a worst case senario they would&nbsp;just have the reserve print more money and buy treasury notes. This would fund the daily operations of the government and maybe give a few hundred billion extra&nbsp;for pet projects.

When interest rates rise on government debt mortgage rates will also rise. When mortgage rates rise house prices will fall barring massive wage increases. <br/><br/>A government never goes bankrupt. They simply default on their loans. When the government refuses to pay who can get them to pay?<br/><br/>Or they print extra zeros on money so what they pay back is nothing like what they really owed.<br/> Fri, 24 Dec 2010 20:27:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/If-the-government-goes-bankrupt-what-impact-will-that-have-on-purchasing-real-property-of-any-kind/378569/ 2010-12-24T20:27:00Z Bankruptcy&nbsp;is a legally ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/If-the-government-goes-bankrupt-what-impact-will-that-have-on-purchasing-real-property-of-any-kind/378569/ <strong>Bankruptcy</strong>&nbsp;is a legally declared inability or impairment of ability of an individual or organization to pay its&nbsp;<a title="Creditor" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creditor" rel="nofollow">creditors</a>. for as long as there are mouths to feed and consume in the US we pay the world handsomely for their goods and services.
