by Adam | The more I read about the financial industry bailout, the more angry it makes me. I have a hard time thinking rationally about this, but I think that's because the entire idea of the bailout is fundamentally irrational. This is really an unfathomable amount of money (i.e. more government debt) being tossed around, and I don't think the benefit is even close to being worth the cost. That's not even bringing up the enormous moral hazard issue here, and the basic lack of moral fairness in a plan that bails out investors and industry powers but leaves individual morgage-holders and taxpayers holding the bag.
