I'm watching a documentary and they mentioned the 2008 economic crisis with the banks etc. At first I use to believe you bail out the wealthy because they employ people, but that gets into "trickle down" economics to which I believe is a fallacy. Maybe job growth, but not necessarily raises. When people criticize smaller unemployment job numbers, I have to laugh because at least they're employment enough. If you want more than a job that doesn't require a HS diploma than you need training or schooling. So it really doesn't seem like you can complain. It's a good thing irregardless. It's like saying I want more, but I shouldn't have to do more.\n\nAnyway, I think gov't bails out large corps because if they just give it to the people well that's not creating jobs. Are they just bailing them out because they lobby for them, or is there something to what I'm saying?\n\nEdit: the reason I agree with the 9-11 bailout is I think related to infrastructure. Had they not, the whole markets dependent on the airlines comes crashing down I assume. Well it did anyway, sort of, but gov't gave them money to get started back up much sooner.
