Alex,I think I do understand what happened a bit better than the average Joe (and that in itself is kind of scary), but there's no way anyone can say that the individuals who packaged and sold these MBSs, while no one was paying attention to the ramifications, deserve to receive salaries, much less huge bonuses paid for by the taxpayers. You screw up like that in any other job you don't get a bonus, you get canned. Dispicable but the only option left, imho.The bailout maybe, but you can't possibly mean the bonuses. The financial system isn't going to come to a grinding halt because these guys don't get bonuses.So no, it's not the only option.
