Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Nela Richardson discusses government regulation on Bloomberg Television's "Market Makers." (Source: Bloomberg)

Company that that's the only question that matters, our companies willing to pay these costs?

They are willing to pay costs for services they need from the government.

When it comes to permits are getting approvals, yes.

Time is money and the more the potential threat of a government shutdown, that means more money that the companies will eventually have to pay.

They will pay for services.

What they're probably not going to pay for is more regulation.

They'll have to be very directive.

Government shutdowns are so rare that they are willing to raise their hand and say, yes, i want to pay additional money to protect themselves on the off chance we have a shutdown?

Sort of like a lunar eclipse, no?

It is becoming more frequent, unfortunately.

In fact, the reason why our mystical and tech companies were insulated from the recent shutdown is because they had these user fees in place.

If these budget negotiations aren't successful, they might be things the government are willing to pay for their red the user fees would come on top of taxes or they would get a break in exchange for more user fees?

Republicans do not like the three letter word, tax.

They might like the words see a little bit better but have been vocal in that they do not want to see any tax revenue increases . what user fees represent as a middle ground that might end the stalemate and make it more palatable to republicans as well.

What are those republicans agreed to user fees?

They might, but it took the -- but it depends on where the fees go to.

They were very much against funding the derivatives regulation and that is because they did not like.


They did not want to see more regulation in the environmental world.

Fees that were directed to services such republicans approved of would probably get their stance.

These that went to more regulation, i would say absolutely not.

What is the downside?

Trying to figure this out.

User fees work best when they are given to a targeted number of beneficiaries that actually benefit from the service that is being offered by the government.

They do not work when the government service is broad- based and a lot of people benefits.

What a cruise to a small number of people and a large number of people.

Also, disconnecting certain functions of government, like supplying food stamps may be politically challenging in this kind of environment.

Thank you very much.

Good to see you this monday
