I came across this from Phil Plait (I think) on Bad Astronomy, and felt what it shows is highly overlooked recently…

When you look at what this bailout means in terms of the raw amount of money spent, it’s jaw-dropping in it’s scale really…

Now I hope we can turn the economy around, but regardless of how long it takes, I think it’s important to really understand the size of what we’re talking about, and hopefully this image can give people an idea of that…

    Tired of 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.
