Pros and Cons of the Bailout

Posted Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Congress is mulling a proposed $700 billion bailout of the nation's mortgage lenders. Both Democrats and Republicans are calling for more oversight and protection of taxpayer investment. There's no shortage of questions about the bailout, starting with whether $700 billion will be enough. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the debate over the bailout and the strings that might be attached and get answers to your questions about our shared economic future. Plus, we talk to the BBC's Ros Atkins at the tail end of the quintessential American road trip. Join us Tuesday morning at 9 a.m.


Economy, Facing the Mortgage Crisis, Government/Politics
