The author shares his opinion on the U.S. government bailout of companies affected by the economic downturn. He argues that corporate bailouts were more like sporting events and not so much like business dealings. He criticizes the government for giving bailout money only to the financial and automobile industries and asserts that the electronics industry can also make use of such assistance.
