Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Frank Schnittger:
I think we may be getting into a semantic squabble here.  I am partly using a market framing to get around the USA phobia of state intervention/ownership and also to avoid the taxpayer being stuck with almost unlimited liabilities.  I am also buying into Chris' more general thesis that the financial system as is is unrescuable and the focus now must be on finding ways to support the real economy which move away from dependency on "too big to fail" banks and from excessive debt financing in general.
Possibly. It's not the first time I am irked by a piece you geared to a different audience...

Most economists teach a theoretical framework that has been shown to be fundamentally useless. -- James K. Galbraith

Yea - my problem is I don't like preaching to the converted and prefer reaching to the convertable...
