New method of business on Wall Street...

When the company does well the money changers reap mega profits.

If the company fails they want the public to absorb the losses.

What a sweet deal.

That's a simple answer. The Taxpayers.

You are being saddled up with future debt by a private corporation called the US Federal Reserve. You pay, they hand it out to their Wall Street cohorts who lost all the capital they had. Sweet deal for them...sucks for you.

If they bail them out, what about the big three coming up? One of the analysts said something to the effect that if AIG was bailed out, it would be a shift from the private sector.

Looks like a run on AIG:

If this is happening elsewhere AIG could be up against the wall big time. I can see them calling the Fed, saying you have your Chap 11 papers ready to file at the Fed Courthouse and do you want to have a chat before we head over there.

If AIG gets bailed out, then what about Goldman Sachs, which is also going to fail. This is going to be very interesting.

It comes off a monster Fed magic fiscal database... click-click-click & poof!, there it is!

That's how monetary inflation is produced. And monetary inflation becomes consumer inflation.

we don't owe them anything, they owe us...they are the ones in debt, we kept up our end of the bargain, they set the rates and made the laws that demanded we pay...and squandered the money.
