My brother has a bailout plan too. He thinks we should declare shenanigans. Those of you who don't know what this means can click here and get schooled. If you want a more technical definition, click here.
How would one declare shenanigans against the financial crisis? Start by telling the government to stop distorting just about every major economic decision we make, from saving for retirement to buying a house to safeguarding our income, physical assets, and health. Then tell entrenched managers that they are no longer going to be able to run publicly traded corporations for their own enrichment. Then start the game over from scratch and for goodness sake stay vigilant this time. Check out public policy blogs instead of surfing for eye candy. Ask questions instead of FLAMING. But most importantly, read my books (and those of similar scholars) instead of wasting time watching TV!
