With today’s uncertain economic environment and a substantial change in the makeup of government, either action or inaction on any particular issue may have important consequences. In recent years, annual appropriations have been late, and debt-limit crisis has been just around the corner; that pattern continues to this day.

The President has sought to move the ball wherever possible, sometimes stretching past norms, and the Congress has determined to stymie him to maintain its principles and to achieve political advantage. Now, we will have government controlled by one party, but with a President unlike any in recent history, with no experience in government. What does this election outcome portend? How will the election affect business uncertainty and how will our next president's proposed changes to fiscal policy impact the economy? We will look at early signs for these issues.
