Markets: Help! We're broke!
Governments: Here's a bailout...
Markets: Oooh - just look at all the new public debt. We're not having that. You might default on us.
I cannot help feeling that "the market" is looking on in shopcked bemusement that we are bailing out the banks in the first place. "We can't trust people who are that stupid now can we"?
notes from no w here

Vencit omnia veritas.
50% refers to total debt to GDP.
