Hi friends !
The impact of the earthquake and tsunami will have some impact on the economy; letís hope it is minimal. My main concern is the lacklustre Obamaís flaccidity when it comes to major decision making, when the worldís and the nationís chaos is beyond his grasping any solution to resolve a crisis.
As mentioned by Ham12; it is surprising Obama hasnít issued an order for the closure of our nuclear facilities. He, on the other hand, may surprise us, yet!

No, I don`t think that Japan`s earthquake will heart the US economy because there no such a business connections over there.

It will in fact affect the US economy. Looking at just the automotive sector. There are US assembly plants that have been affected, whereby the parts manufacturers are still shut down causing parts to be scarce. This means that these plants cannot build their cars and will need to temporarily shut down. (possibly causing temporary or indefinite layoffs). At any rate, this lost production affects the US economy.

Agree with you. Almost every international business nowadays has connection with Japan or China, so the impact will appear for sure. The quesion is just how strong it could be...
