Prepare for bank failures
John Authers makes pertinent observations on the Fannie and Freddie bail out. Given that things are bad enough to need that Fed support, banks small enough to fail may well do so. Another point, made on Newsnight last night, is the sums are so large, the US may need to print money, which as we know means inflation. Wither deflation now.
