U.S. Shutdown, Jobs, Bernanke, ECB: Week Ahead Sept. 28-Oct.5
The U.S. federal government will begin to shut down on Oct. 1 unless Congress passes temporary funding legislation. The key hurdle to an agreement is a demand by Republican members of the House that any bill omit funding for President Barack Obama’s health-care law. Congress also may debate whether to raise the U.S. debt ceiling.
U.S. companies added more jobs in September as the unemployment rate remained at 7.3 percent, data in the coming week are likely to show. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke will speak at the St. Louis Fed.
European Central Bank President Mario Draghi and Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda each will give press conferences after their respective interest-rate decisions.
SATURDAY, SEPT. 28
