US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has been urging Congress to raise the US debt’s ceiling this year. She warned that the US could run out of cash by June 1 without an agreement to increase what the federal government can borrow, and the resulting default on debt could trigger an "economic and financial catastrophe".

In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong invites Associate Professor of Finance, Fu Fangjian, from the Singapore Management University’s Lee Kong Chian School of Business to share his perspectives on the crisis.
