Download the 451-page bailout proposal
Well folks, I hope you have plenty of time on your hands. The initial 3-page document that Bush and Paulson put forward has grown somewhat. It's hardly surprising, considering how much of a broad sweep the initial bailout plan was. However, you have to wonder how many people out there have the time, patience and understanding to read a 451-page economic document. But, if you want, you can download it right here.
Simply click this link and you should be prompted to save the entire document to your computer. For those with slow connections, this could take a while. But certainly nowhere near as long as the monumental read that awaits you. A document like this could hide all sorts of legal loopholes and technicalities, so I hope there are plenty of non-partisan economists looking through this for the sake of every American taxpayer. Happy reading.
