No to the Bailout!

No to the Bailout!

San Francisco Gray Panthers believes the current economic crisis is the inevitable result of economic deregulation dating back to the 1990s, which resulted in the biggest wealth disparity in US history and the dismantling of social programs, even before the current economic crisis. In response to the current economic crisis, San Francisco Gray Panthers demands:

  1. An end to foreclosures and evictions,
  2. New-Deal scale programs for jobs, infrastructure, housing, healthcare, education, secure retirement, safe food, and safe environment,
  3. No taxpayer-based bailout of Wall Street, and
  4. Return of US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan to the US.

    Tired of the bankers having all the fun.

    Bailout! The Game the hilarious parody of the government bailout where when you lose, you win. In this role reversal of the classic board game debt is king.

    Bailout! The Game gives you an endless supply of T.A.R.P funds, laughs and fun.

    Be the bank, lose billions and get a bailout.

    Play as one of six banks: Bankruptcy O’ America, Worth Farless, No Cashvia, Liquidation Brothers, Greedy Investors of America, or Washed Up Mutual.

    Land on or pass over Frantic May and Frivolous Mac spaces and get slammed with bad debt.(MBS’s and CDO’s)

    Just as Monopoly was born out of the Great Depression, Bailout! The Game was born out The Great Recession.
