Dear Wonk Room: No 'Right' Way to Bail Out Industry
Editor, The Wonk Room
While it's true that some ways of bailing out this industry would be less harmful than other ways, there is absolutely no "right" way to do it. To advise government to do the auto industry bailout "right" makes as much sense as advising a burglar to burgle the neighborhood houses "right."
