I see billions+ (soon to be trillions) being spent of taxpayer money to help Big Finance, but I cannot help to think that there is a better course. Why not paydown residential mortgages $100k and allow them to refi at reduced rate of, lets say, 4%. That would reduce the cost of living for many by around $1000-$1200 per month. Also, that money goes directly back into the finance markets. In the long run, Big Finance doesn't make the most money possible, but the economy, as a whole, should stabilize. Think of it as watering a tree from the roots instead of soaking down.
Ironically, the lemmings aren't seeing that the Democratic Party that termed "trickle down economics" as bad voodoo are the same promoting it.
