Think about it. This bailout talk came out of nowhere and since then it has introduced nothing but fear and panic.

The market has been all over the place since this bailout talk started.

This had to be purposely introduced.

They wanted panic and fear for some reason.

Think about the economy and how things were before all of this panic and fear was introduced. It wasn't perfect but it wasn't like this.

Hitler said years ago, if you repeat the same slogan again and again people will eventually believe it.

You have:

Bailout talk
700B and maybe more
The G-7 meeting
The sky is falling everyday on the news

This was a manufactured crisis. There's a goal behind all of this, I'm just not sure what it is. I have some ideas.

Yes, there's problems but they had to know when they introduced all of this fear and panic it would become a self fulfilling prophecy.

You need to go and see a shrink as you have not only totally lost it, you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

Elaborate leo, share your knowledge as to why the OP is wrong.

haha, yeah.... The bail outs were a reaction to a problem. this would have happened regardless of whether or not the bail out happened. The first major stock crisis was in july after feddie and fannie went down. We had a rebound then Lehman brothers and AIG were in trouble. after that it was apparent something ad to be done or other banks were going to soon fallow, and we couldn't just keep buying out banks from the fed reserve.

the talks about bail out aren't really affecting the market. It made a big splash when it was being passed because ,well it failed the first time.

No, the financial institutions who lent out way too much money they would never be able to collect on are destroying the economy. The financial institutions that are using accounting tricks to hide their solvency are destroying the economy. The firms that played in the multi-multi-trillion dollar derivatives market are destroying the economy.

Just because YOU didn't see it before now doesn't mean it hasn't been happening for years.

This is exactly what governments have been doing for years. They know if they scare you enough that you will do anything.

You will go to war or become a mob based on fear and governments of the world know this.

The people are blinded to these things because fear overtakes reason.

The way the government introduced the bailout caused fear and panic.

They went to Congress and Paulson asked for 700B and said financial collapse was coming.

Remember, all of the congressmen and women came out of these "secret" metting with fear in their eyes. This started the panic and it's been out of control every since.

Why do you think small banks are rejecting government money? One bank said he had 2,000 outstanding loans and only 3 of them are behind.

C.E.O. after C.E.O. were coming on places like CNBC, FOX business and other shows saying they had capital and they were ready to go bargain hunting.

The bailout passed and the market has been tanking since then.

So of course the bailout talk has hurt the economy. Anytime you introduce this much fear an panic you are trying to cover up something else that you are doing because fear and panic blinds people.

Governments have been doing this for years.

Leo this does not help things...Bad Comment!!!

There is a lot of merit in what OP is saying, one of the major factors in our economy is what people think the economy is going to do. If everyone in the world believed the stock market would crash next week and behaved would. If i don't think your dollar is worth anything, I'm not going to buy it right? If no one thinks your dollar is worth anything, nobody buys and then your dollar REALLY isn't worth anything. Everything is based on peoples perspective. Thats why liquidity is usually a bad thing because it can be manipulated so easily.

Have you guys looked up what the word bailout means.

"to make an emergency parachute jump from an aircraft"

that makes me laugh, do you guys think that means something here.
