Greenlight’s Einhorn Says a U.S. Default Is Unimaginable

David Einhorn, president of hedge-fund firm Greenlight Capital Inc., said it’s unimaginable for the U.S. to miss a deadline to raise its debt limit and default.

“Frankly not working this out so the government shuts down is bad enough,” he said in an interview today with Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schatzker on Bloomberg Television’s “Market Makers.” “It doesn’t seem that they tried to sit down to talk through their differences. It’s a real shame. I think it is embarrassing to all of them.”
