The 11th-Hour Deal - Edgar Perez

New York City, NY, USA (November 18, 2013) — Edgar Perez, the celebrated author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, and Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, is presenting his newest book, The 11th-Hour Deal, Behind Washington’s Closed-doors During the 16-day Government Shutdown of October 2013 (http://www.The11thHourDeal.com), the behind-the-scenes story of the dramatic days between October 1st and 16th. The 11th-Hour Deal, to be released on February 7, 2014, will provide a comprehensive day-by-day account of what happened behind closed doors in Washington when the political class negotiated in fits and starts reopening of the government and raising the debt ceiling to ultimately arrive to an agreement at the 11th-hour.

On October 17, 2013, just minutes into the day, President Barack Obama signed the bill that ended a 16-day partial government shutdown and raised the debt ceiling, after weeks of negotiations that gave way to a frenzied Wednesday night in Washington as Congress finally passed the bill that would prevent the country from crashing into the debt ceiling. Members of both the Senate and House of Representatives had worked dangerously close to the midnight debt ceiling deadline amid warnings the government of the United States of America could run out of money to pay its bills if Congress didn’t raise the debt ceiling.

The Republican-led House had given the final stamp of approval voting 285 to 144 for the bill brokered by the Democratic-led Senate, which had voted on Wednesday evening, 81 to 18. The proposal had been hammered out by the chamber’s Republican and Democratic leaders after continued resolutions approved by the House that defunded Obamacare, President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare initiative, went nowhere. The debt cushion was extended through February 7, with current spending levels being authorized through January 15.

The 16 days of the partial government shutdown had come at a steep cost. Standard and Poor’s estimated it took $24 billion out of the economy; Fitch Ratings had put the U.S. AAA credit rating on watch for a potential downgrade. The possibility of a debt default spooked investors on Wall Street and hiked interest rates. Furthermore, it impacted American’s top-notch financial and business global preeminence; China, America’s largest foreign debt holder with $1.28 trillion of U.S. bonds, was already calling for considering building a de-Americanized world.

Perez (http://www.MrEdgarPerez.com) is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert in investing and high-frequency trading. Perez has been interviewed on Sina Finance, CNBC Squawk On The Street, Bloomberg TV’s Market Makers, CNN en Español’s Dinero, FOX Business’s Countdown to the Closing Bell, CNBC Worldwide Exchange, CNBC Cash Flow, CNBC Squawk Box, BNN Business Day, CCTV China, Bankier.pl, TheStreet.com, Leaderonomics, GPW Media, Channel NewsAsia Business Tonight and Cents & Sensibilities.

Due to the government shutdown, the world’s largest sugar daddy dating site, SugarDaddyForMe.com, is seeing an influx of young women in search of a sugar daddy to help them get through these difficult financial times. But, according to SugarDaddyForMe.com, the problem for many young women is that they can’t even afford to pay for the membership fee in order to find that generous, supportive man they are looking for on the site in their time of greatest need. SugarDaddyForMe.com has come up with a unique solution to this problem. Responding to the toll that the government shutdown has taken on younger, single women who have been furloughed from government jobs, SugarDaddyForMe.com announced an unequaled opportunity for young women temporarily laid off from government jobs who are interested in seeking a mature, successful and supportive man. Beginning today, sugar babies with proof of government furlough as a result of the government shutdown, can receive a Gold Membership absolutely at no cost with complete access to all of the site’s premium services.

“This is a unique offer that no other online dating website we know of has made available to young women who are suffering financially due to the failure of Congress to end this shutdown. We are taking this bold risk because we believe that it is the best way to let single women who have been negatively affected by the government shutdown to find out how unique, rewarding and completely unlike any other dating site in the world SugarDaddyForMe.com is, and be able to do so at absolutely no cost during their time of financial difficulty. We are taking this opportunity to introduce the site to these single women who might never have tried our site or any sugar daddy dating site otherwise,” says the founder of SugarDaddyForMe.com, Gautam Sharma.

The old saying, “It’s just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor man,” may be particularly appropriate for some young single women in these difficult financial times. Site statistics reveal that when younger female members suffering financial hardship were given the chance to use all the features that the website provides, including the ability to contact sugar daddies at no cost, almost every female member became a loyal SugarDaddyForMe.com member.

SugarDaddyForMe.com has long been known as a well kept and treasured secret to those women who have experienced this life changing online dating service which many say is unlike any other. The site’s new offer of a Free Gold Membership with no risk and no cost, invites new would-be sugar babies in financial distress due to the government shutdown to discover the benefits of the kind of supportive relationships millions of other members have found on the website ever since its launch in 2005.

SugarDaddyForMe.com feels that this latest offer is the perfect no risk opportunity for women experiencing difficult financial times who have been thinking about searching for their own sugar daddy, but never took the next step for one reason or another, including for many women, financial reasons. For detailed information on how to apply, women should go to http://www.sugardaddyforme.com/adult-dating-services/shutdown.
