ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the most aggressive market invention plan of government in the U.S. The government states that it will invest $250 billion in distressed financial companies. The announcement helped drive the Dow Industrials up 936 points, or 11%. The investment will come from the $700 billion package, which has the government buying both troubled assets and stakes in the banks selling them. The move will partially nationalize the banking industry.
