I asked the cards if the Bush administrations bail out plan would save us from an immediate Depression. Yes, was the answer, but there were many caveats. It will be glorious for the wealthy, not so great for all of us. It would be a tremendous sacrifice to us the people and would set a dangerous pattern.
So a bail out is necessary to stave off a Depression, but this one is lopsided and while it would do the trick in the short term, it would end up costing us a lot not just in the way of tax dollars, but in future problems. It would set a dangerous precedent for future financial trouble.
