Bail Outs – explained in one easy to understand graphic


text of image below, if graphic doesn’t load

“bail outs”
countries don’t get bailed out, the bankers and the rich do: CEOs continue to get their performance bonuses for bankrupting companies, and for the elite life goes on uninterrupted.
for the poor, they get “austerity”: slashed services, increased taxes, rising unemployment, jobs going offshore, starvation.
This is what “shared sacrifices” means – when you are the 1%, they sacrifice so you get more than your fair share
bail out = private profit, public debt
