Gerry Rice, Director of the Communications Department at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), said on Thursday that it is important for the US government to find a debt limit solution that avoids a “counterproductive brinksmanship,” per Reuters.

“The US should consider replacing debt ceiling with automatic adjustment mechanism or clear medium-term fiscal objective,” Rice added.
