    I say let both the banks and the automakers fail. That is the true capitalistic way.

    I’m not a fan of American auto-makers, since they mostly sell humungous, highly inefficient, fume-spewing and fuel-guzzling vehicles in North America and to a lesser extent, worldwide.

    But, at least they sell goods and services of value and employ tens of millions of people directly and indirectly. Contrast them with the Wall Street banksters, who employ a microscopic fraction of the numbers that the car makers employ and sell nothing of value, only worthless packaged debt. Yet, the banksters have got trillions of dollars of handout money, while the auto-makers are refused loans. A free market should force bankrupt companies to fail. Instead, the Wall Street banksters have been bailed out with taxpayer money and their top management is rewarded with bonuses for making the company bankrupt!

    Also, banks like Citi are known for their unethical, outrageously usurious practices, even in India, where Citibank is a highly hated bank. If I was forced to choose between a product of, say, Ford and Citi or GM and Citi, I’d go for Ford/GM with my eyes closed.
