The Economy

This update focuses on the economy. Financial firms including Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AIG, and Washington Mutual have gone bankrupt, been bailed out, or been bought out. This economic crisis was precipitated by the collapse of the housing bubble, which was caused by the Federal Reserve's monetary policy and government regulations. The government is now proposing a 700 billion dollar bailout of bad lenders.
