My PhD is math and I encourage my students (when I teach) to feel free to ask questions, since they typically block themselves by thinking they're the only one in the room for which this material is a black hole.
The reality, of course, is that generally everyone breathes a sigh of relief when the question is asked, because they too wanted to ask a similar question and blocked themselves for just the same reasons.
Well, economics is not my forte, and I swear to God I am at least as confused as my students about what the h___ is really happening.
So please forgive the very short piece, but may I cut to the chase and ask you professionals can Obama basically "undo" the bailout, which one submission I recently scanned said was EVEN WORSE than 9/11?
Also, any really solid general outline of this convoluted financial world (at least to me) would be very, very gratefully received.
I thank my teachers in advance.
