The Bailout Game

Disagree with some of the government's decisions with respect to the bailout? The Bailout Game lets you chart your own course through this economic downturn. Banks and industries come to you for help, and you decide which ones are worth saving in order to help save the broader economy!

The authors have their own ideas of what the government should have done, and they will score you accordingly for each of your decisions. A wrong move on your part can destroy other companies, while a right move keeps the recession at bay.

This interactive tool is also a fun way to learn or re-visit some of the events of the last year that have put us in this position.
