I haven’t kept up with everything around this bailout, so I was hoping some people here can help me out. Here’s my thought: Let the bad institutions fail. They made bad investments and the problem will not be fixed by letting poorly run corporations continue to mismanage investments. Other institutions have invested conservatively, and other banks have been responsible in approving mortgages and loans. These institutions should survive, the rest should be allowed to fail. The good institutions might even buy the bad ones to manage investments and mortgages properly. Where is my thinking wrong here? Are we rewarding failure? Does anyone believe in capitalism anymore?
