Doesn't hold water in my opinion since the conversion to Y2K compatibility
within the Federal Government alone will cost much more than any "windfall"
generated from investment sell-offs.

Granted, but consider this:

The Gov has to make the conversion anyway, there's no way around it.

However, "WHAT IF..." the Clinton Administration were to adopt a policy of "emphasizing" the disastrous effects of Y2K, in order to shake the "windfall tree", and ensure that all that wonderful capital gains tax money were suddenly available?

No one loves to spend your money more than the Federal Government, and no branch of the government more than the Executive as currently constituted (hey, it's all "for the children...")

Anyway, it sounds very plausible to me.
