It's the holidays. We want to make sure everybody gets what they need."Railroads say a stoppage could throw the economy off-track, costing up to $2 billion dollars each day.SMU Economics Professor Mike Davis said Wednesday that it's hard to measure a dollar amount, but that if there's a strike, it could impact the supply chain for consumer goods among other items.
