Sparking a Populist Revolt Against the Billionaire Bailout Society
Talk to your neighbors and you can sense how angry they are about the rich gaining ever more wealth during the Great Recession. They understand that the bailout money — our tax dollars — went to the largest financial institutions in the world which had caused the crisis in the first place. They sense that the middle class is getting screwed yet again.</p>
What a teachable moment! But what are we teaching?
I am especially fond of this proposal:
Break up all institutions that are too big too fail so that they are small enough to fail.
