Deadline Day

Today is June 30 and is an arbitrarily chosen deadline in a wide range of contexts. A few deadlines to be met or missed:

  • The authorization for the Export-Import Bank expires (budget hawks expect to bring it back to life within a few weeks)
  • Greece is not expected to make a loan payment due today
  • Talks on the nuclear program in Iran were set to expire, but have been extended to July 7
  • It is the end of the fiscal year in many U.S. states (so that new budget is ready, right?)
