The Monkey Cage asks

Will the U.S. federal debt ceiling be raised or suspended before 1 December 2017?

On 15 March 2017, the U.S. government's suspension of the debt limit expired (USA Today). Since then, the U.S. Treasury has undertaken "extraordinary measures" to prevent default (CNBC). The Congressional Budget Office estimates that these measures will enable the Treasury to service U.S. debt into the fall (CBO).
