    I hate to point out the obvious, but it's because it stood to loose billions on bad loans that no one would lend it money and it needed bailing out.

    The only sensible question is whether it would have been better to let it fail catastrophically at the time.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    A PM I knew in a previous gig started there recently. He was an arse. He also once gave me a bad reference after 2 years of busting my hump for him.

    It couldn't happen to a nicer fella.

    Probably not, but it might yet be better to wind it down in an orderly fashion if that's possible.
