"But really the best comparison I have is 2008, where we had this bailout of the banking sector."
Which was a terrible mistake. Why? The best comparison I have is, you go in a casino, lose all your own plus your friend's money, and then run for mommy, crying to bail you out - the same mother you hate for all her rules she puts on you when everything goes well. Seriously, the financial area is so cancerous, opportunistic, and out of touch with reality, that I don't really care if banks are collapsing. After all, it's just money - all the people, all the machines, all the inventory of the industry will still be there afterwards.

The Tulip mania[^] is a good example on how to handle such situations much better - for the society.
