This sucks more companies that are going out of business because of stupid economic policies. This has got to stop and we have to change our way of thinking. Bringing back FDR's new deal regulations would be a good first step.

I have come curiously close to the end, though
Beneath my self indulgent pitiful hole. Defeated I
Concede and move closer. I may find comfort here
I may find peace within the emptiness. How pitiful.
It's calling me...

USA: economic wasteland. I can see that now.

This sucks but hey its part of the whatever process this is...I wonder how many companies will need bailout or just cease to exist after this whole economic collapse/thingy/aftershock gets controlled..

I thought FDR's New Deal actually made the depression worse, and the only thing that got us out of that one was WWII...

And I don't like the idea of the government babying us. Businesses will fail, but then others will rise. That's how it works, right?

It depends on which side of the political spectrum the economist you're talking to falls upon.

But, really it's a mute point since economics is a pseudoscience and all economists are just bottom feeders who can't back up a single assertion with any real evidence.

If you support the bailout I don't see why you would have a problem with this.

It made at least some sense when the automakers asked for a bailout. Failing newspapers don't deserve a cent. It's a waste of paper anyways.

I'm beginning to think of you as a bit of an idiot.
Firstly, it's moot point, mute is a fairly common malapropism but it's still wrong.
Secondly, if you knew anything about economics you would know that economics is in no way psuedoscientific. I point to the works of Keynes and Friedman and how their policies, when adopted saved (not an understatement) the British and American economies respectively.

As a point, I think this article raises an interesting point since the newspapers, outside of government financing face certain collapse. While I agree that once the recession ends new ones will come into being, I'm worried about the interim period wherein people who traditionally read newspapers (some of whom I assume don't like or don't have access to online journals) won't be able to get the news other than tuning into shitshows like FoxNews and CNN. That's what I find really tragic.

If you were being sarcastic:

Because Nobel prizes are handed out like lollipops huh?

Yasser.
And he deserved it, in my opinion.
As far as Mother Theresa I don't understand why you think that a woman who dedicated 45 years of her life to charity does not deserve some sort of global commemoration

Also, I'm talking about Nobel prizes in Economics not in Peace. The prizes also come with grants, so let me rephrase:

"It's not like 1.5 million USD is handed out like lollipops."
