This is a two part report and the general topic is the US Debt Crisis. The first part of this report should identify those large and small companies (choose 5-10) that were most affected by the US Debt Crisis and how the debt situation might have caused some failures for the companies.
In the second part of this report, discuss risks and valuations of companies and instruments and/or risk and valuation methodologies are to be developed with respect to the US Debt Crisis. Several of these should be identified and developed separately.

An extensive discussion of the methods of valuation will be necessary in all of these areas. Please include and executive summary, introduction, body of report and conclusion.
