Ending Government Bailouts as We Know Them

What are the dangers of continuing government bailouts? Are there alternative strategies to both resolve the current bailout problem and prevent future crises?

In Ending Government Bailouts as We Know Them (Hoover Press, 2010), a group of expert contributors examines the dangers of continuing government bailouts and offers constructive alternatives. The authors provide strategies designed to “make failure tolerable” and eliminate the current bailout mentality both now and in the future. They also show that it is indeed possible—and necessary—to explain the causes of the crisis in understandable terms and clarify why resolving the bailout problem is essential to preventing future crises and improving economic growth without inflation.
