It’s one thing to hate on the bailout plan and quite another to come up with an alternative, but following are five attempts at a better way forward:
Michael Moore: Get the money from the 400 wealthiest Americans
Alec Baldwin: Make every bailout recipient issue stock
Dan Walker, Seeking Alpha: If the crisis is liquidity, make the financial institutions more liquid by buying equity
Jerome a Paris, Daily Kos: Create a National Investment Bank that would help individuals rather than banks
Sebastian Mallaby, The Washington Post: Is the bailout even necessary?
Anyone have an alternative to the alternatives?
