- Municipal debt is more attractive after the re-election of Obama. Investors should be careful of the long-end of the yield curve. TIPs are attractive.

- You avoid a fiscal cliff through a mini bargain, not a grand bargain, meaning a contraction from 4 percent to 1.5 percent of GDP – it’s more likely that we will avoid the fiscal cliff.
