The US Government shutdown contrasts with political progress in Germany, this week’s Davos conference could provide greater insight into differing styles of Merkel and Trump.
As I type this morning the US Government remains in partial shutdown as starkly differing positions on immigration result in deadlock between the Republican and Democratic parties.

In reality, a short-term shutdown will have relatively little impact on near-term economics.

4. Keep an eye on headlines from the World Economic Forum in Davos
