Once upon a time a man appeared in a village and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.
The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them.
The man bought thousands at $10 and supply started to diminsh; the villagers stopped their efforts. He next announced that he would now buy them at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.
Soon the supply dimished even further, and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so scarce it was an effort to even find a monkey let alone catch one.
The man announced that he would buy monkeys at $50 each. However, since he had to go to the city on business his assistant would buy on his behalf. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers "look at all the monkeys in the big cages that the man has already collected". I will sell them to you for $35 and when the man returns from the city , you can sell them to him for $50 each.
The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys for 700 billion dollars.
They never saw the man or his assistant again. Only lots and lots of monkeys.
Now you have a better understanding of how the WALL STREET BAILOUT PLAN WILL WORK!!!!!!!
It does not get much clearer than this.......
