A Tale of Two Bets

The world has never seen anything like the global meltdown of the financial markets of 2008-2009.

That is partly because banks and the governments of many countries have been on a long-term, self-defeating spending binge.

But the crisis also had a surprising element, which is that it was driven by the actions of a single group of traders: banks.

It’s been argued that the problem was not a lack of money.

It was that banks were too big to fail.

In short, it was the banks that caused the crash.

What did they do wrong?

They created a bubble in the asset markets of banks that could never be fully sold off or liquidated, and so they were rewarded by government bailouts.

That in turn was financed by a large rise in interest rates that made it easier for banks to lend to borrowers.

This is what happened to the housing bubble in 2007 and 2008.

The banks did not create the housing market, they bought it.

The mortgage market was a mess.

It had inflated prices that were out of control.

But they did so by lending too much money to too few people.

And that was precisely what happened in 2008, and it happened again in 2009.

The answer to the problem of too big a bank is to keep them too big, and to keep their bonuses to themselves.

This strategy of “bail out” by the banks has had an impact on the global economy.

Banks’ profits have fallen by about a third, and profits of the countries that bailed them out have been slashed by about 10%.

The governments that bailed out the banks are now demanding more.

They are demanding a big bailout of the banks.

The bailout that has been negotiated for Britain is a disaster, and the result will be a financial crisis.

The result will also be a loss of political power in the countries involved.

But even in this crisis the banks were rewarded for their failure.

In fact, the bailout that was proposed to Britain and other countries was a bailout that should have never been negotiated at all.

This was a mistake.

Bail out The banks that created the bubble in 2008-09 were the largest banks in the world.

The total assets of these banks are bigger than that of every other bank in the whole of the world combined.

That makes them a large, powerful financial institution, and they deserve to be bailed out.

They also deserve to receive a fair return.

If the government of Britain has decided that the government will make a large bailout of these big banks, then I believe that the bail-out will be fair, and that the taxpayer should be paying a fair share.

But this is a bad decision for the taxpayer.

The government’s decision should have been to stop the bailouts of the big banks and other big financial institutions that are too big and too big for their own good.

The problem is that this is the way the system works.

The big banks are big and powerful, and there are huge profits to be made from them.

But, by and large, their shareholders do not have a stake in them.

Their profits are not taxed in the same way as the profits of other firms.

Their owners do not benefit from government bail outs.

This means that if the government wants to make a big investment in a big bank, then the government should be able to tax its profits and the profits earned by the big bank.

But if the taxpayer does not have any stake in the banks, they should not have to pay a fair price for their losses.

The idea that taxpayers should not be paying any part of the bail out of these institutions is a common one.

It is the view that taxpayers are getting a good deal.

But that is not the case.

Borrowing is a business.

And, as a business, the government does not get a share of the profits.

The taxpayer pays for the risk that the banks take.

The taxpayers are paying for the losses that banks incur in trying to do their business.

In addition, taxpayers pay taxes on the profit that banks make.

These losses are paid for by taxpayers.

And in some countries, taxpayers do not even get to profit from the banks’ failures.

For example, in Switzerland, banks are required to provide a profit to their customers every time they borrow money.

This profit is a loss for the taxpayers.

The profits of banks are taxed, and, in addition, banks pay taxes in the form of interest and penalties on deposits and other assets held in their banks.

That means that the profits that banks are earning in the United Kingdom and elsewhere are also taxed in Britain.

The same principle applies in the case of other countries.

In the case where the governments want to borrow from big financial companies, they can, and do, do so.

In this case, the profits from the government-owned banks are not taxable to the taxpayer, but the profits generated by the governments-owned firms are.

In other words, the taxpayers do get a better deal from the
