Discussion Question: Which Scenario would be More Expensive for the average US Citizen (by average lets say the majority from 0-$200,000 income) or in general which situation is better for the average citizen. Scenario A) Aig fails, Wamu fails, many more banks fail one after another, SP500 falls to 700 dow to 8000, 401k's worth alot in 2007 are now worth nothing especially the majority of people who did not diversify properly, fed cuts rates to 1 or less, another round of free money for the possibility of this crisis repeating 5-10 years down the road. Scenario B) RTC takes on all bad assets, treasury prints money like no tomorrow, stocks "go up" lol, people are happy for the short term although they are not aware of how much their money is losing value. Dollar returns to 1.60-1.70 against the euro, us exports soar, and we somehow make it through this mess? If anyone wants to correct my scenarios feel free to do so, but in every post voice your opinion and state why you think either one would be better.
