NY Gov. Paterson: "For The First Time Ever, At The End Of December New York State Will Have A Negative Cash Balance"
David Paterson speaks on CNBC. Not good news for New York inhabitants, or NY CDS shorts. Or not... NY State CDS hit an all time wide of 357 bps in December. They are now around 140. Any escalation of NY's fiscal crisis may simply imply more and more taxpayer bailouts. Swaption time.
