    If the US government shut down, then my collecting would take a bit of a blow. Namely because my money would become worthless.

    Tread carefully, this can become political very fast.

    No, a government shut-down will not affect your private business transactions. Unless you work for the government, I guess, depending on where. The only services that go on break are those considered "non-essential", so not the military, police, fire department, utilities, mint, etc. It doesn't mean the government doesn't exist anymore.

    Similarly, if you live outside the US you will likely notice no change.

    I'm set to make a pretty penny if the government shuts down for any length of time, so, while I do have sympathy for anyone that will be affected, I should be pretty well taken care of.

    I don't think that would happen. The way I understand it, only government workers who are not vital to operations, like my sister, and operations for government parks and museums will be affected.

    Oh, and tax rebate checks.

    I don't work for the government, so I don't think so.

    Government wouldn't hire me to clean floors. So no, I'm fine.

    Oh, alright then. If that's how it works, I'd keep wasting my cash.
