Air America Radio Talk Show Host Ron Kubyâ€”who apparently used to hang out at the Catfish Bar and Grill on the campus of Kansas University when my folks frequented the place circa 1976â€”has just nailed the crying shame about the Fanny May and Freddie Mac bailouts. So long as they’re profitable, these are private firms held publicly, with the profit offered to its investors. The minute they lose, of course, we’re all expected to bear the loss. I know. These two companies shoulder half our economy. Which would seem to argue the point that few companies should not hold an enormous wealth in any given sector of the economy. Wouldn’t it? Doesn’t that provide a good example of the notion that fiercely consolidated capital is actually a soft underbelly to any economy?
