    See what happens when you bail out banks? They straighten up and fly right, why of course! Certainly they won't partake in more risky endeavors then their previous ones, granted that they don't have to pick up the tab when the losses come due.

    This is why we must remain vigilant and stand ready to provide more capital to banks, when need be.

    Central banks are bad. A bank should nt be allowed to loan more than it has in assets. Why can that type of law get passed
