Now that the Bailout Has Failed, How About Bebchuk’s Plan?
I’ve avoided saying anything at all about the bailout because (1) I’m not an expert on banking, finance, etc. and (2) events are moving so fast I can’t keep up with the latest proposal. Nonetheless, since the bailout bill has just failed, this might be an opportune time to consider an alternative to the plan the House just rejected. The most intriguing alternative plan I’ve seen is that set forth by Havard Law’s Lucian Bebchuk in this paper (which was produced in record time!).
