The economy and financial markets are a mess, and I realize that words and marketing can’t change those “fundamentals.”
But the word “bailout” has no upside, does it?
Hearing “bailout” over and over and over again is bound to make us feel so bad or mad that we want to publicly hang a CEO upside down (like that magician, David Blaine) until all his millions fall out of his pockets.
It seems to me that one of those shrewd political types would come up with some other term to put a less negative spin on this latest calamity.
Maybe — oh, I don’t know — “financial markets recovery act”?
