Here's what would happen if I fucked up really bad and lost a bunch of money on a shady housing deal:
Jesse: Oh fuck! This house I clearly couldn't afford is being taken away from me!
U.S. Government: Of course it is! You should manage your finances better.
Jesse: But now I'll be homeless and destitute! Where can I go? What can I do?
U.S. Government: Well, maybe being homeless for awhile will teach you a valuable lesson about fiscal responsibility.
Jesse: Dang, looks like it's back to living in the car for me!
Here's what would happen if I were the CEO of a major lending firm:
Jesse the CEO: Oh fuck! Lending large sums of money to people I knew full well would not be able to pay me back has bitten me in the ass. I clearly have no idea what I'm doing!
U.S. Government: That's ok. Here's 700 billion dollars with no strings attached. Enjoy!
