The Economic Crisis: When Foul Is Fair

Englund, Will
March 2009
National Journal;3/28/2009, p24
The author discusses the issue of unfairness over the U.S. federal government's bailout of financial institutions that are also the culprit or contributed to the financial crisis and recession facing the country. He explains that U.S. President Barack Obama is simply focused on convincing the public that his solution to the problem might be not fair but that is the best for the future of the country. He says that this could be tough sell for Obama and what he needs is to argue that fairness lies in the future.
