Bearman Cartoon: Goverment Bailout or Buyout

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2008 by bearmancartoons

It disturbs me that businesses are lining up to get on the government bailout dole, not to improve their own company but rather to use that money to buy out competitors. Is this capitalism??

This editorial cartoon by Bearman appeared at the Cincinnati Beacon website – cincinnatibeacon.com, on November 17, 2008.  It depicts a large corporate operative begging for money from Uncle Sam as part of a bailout in order to keep his company going while at the same time telling a smaller company that he will use the government’s money to buy them out.
