I heard this interview on NPR and I think both sides provided excellent arguments regarding the issues. If you can’t link this, go to npr.org and search for Michael Scheuer.

“U.S. stocks gained nearly $1 trillion in value in April alone. And the S&P’s March-April gain of 18.7 percent is its best two-month rise since 1975.”

So it seems as if we have avoided a complete meltdown of the US and world financial markets. We are weathering the storm and though it cost us a lot of money, I think the right steps were taken. This could have been much worse. There’s a long way to go, but it’s hard to argue that we did the WRONG thing.
