BBC News logo
Excerpt from BBC News -- "Many people worry that the way we've come out of the financial crisis is the governments in the United States and elsewhere have bailed out financial institutions which weren't even banks...insurance companies, money market mutual funds. So if those institutions now think that they're effectively insured, there's a danger that they're going to take... big risks, because essentially, they're gambling with the taxpayers' money. That's a badly designed system."
