Could this be the beginning of a coordinated world-wide "solution", whose outcome has long been predetermined?

Already the EU is gearing up for joint action. Is this the 'bigger picture', or just a sensible response?

As usual the current plan is couched in terms of limited objectives:


Mr Bush said the rescue plan would free up credit for businesses and families but that it would take some time to work.

[edit to add:]
NB A video of Mr Bush speaking has just been added to the above article. Interesting that after saying (watch from 5:05) that deposits are now guaranteed up to $250,000 he adds that the FDIC has never failed to keeps it promise - followed by a ?revealing? stutter and splutter.
