Congressman Ron Paul - Bankruptcy is Economic Stimulus - Texas Straight Talk
Congressman Ron Paul - Bankruptcy is Economic Stimulus - Texas Straight Talk: "We should have learned from Japan. The 1990’s is referred to as Japan’s “lost decade” because of the zombie banks kept on life support by the Japanese government. Any productivity was redirected through these engines of wealth destruction, resulting in long term stagnation. We should and can avoid this outcome if we come to our senses. A recession should be a time of strengthening and regrouping for an economy. But as long as the government insists on maintaining the status quo by propping up failed institutions, we will continue to dig a bigger hole for ourselves."
