What does US Shut Down Mean

US Shut Down
The shut down in the US does not really mean US has stopped all the economic and social welfare activities. It is only a partial shut down and a temporary suspension of non  essential government services .

It has been 17 years since the last shut down and it is estimated that around 800,000 federal workers will be out of job for a while. The official website of the States says that closer to 17 government services will be also closed down during the period of shut down. 401 national park services which include the countries 59 parks will also get affected by the US shut down. 

$1.4 billion was the cost tax payers had to bear at the time last 9os shut down. We still do not know the far reach effect of the shut down and if it does not prevail, Indians have nothing to worry about it.
