I asked that myself...seems so obvious but at the same time...I wanted a detailed breakdown. Very hard (for me) to find. But anyways...this was the most family-friendly answer I could find...it is from Yahoo Answers and it is a 14 year old asking the question and I believe this kid got good answers with some good links...check it out:
Yahoo Answers Answers: What is the Bailout?
I just wanted to know, and I guess I knew the answer..but always good to investigate to be sure. Do you have a better link (family-friendly)? Share it in the "Comments Jar!" :-)
Happy Saturday Folks!
