The Bailout Game

Congratulations! You have been assigned the task of saving the US -- and by extension the global -- economy. Make your way along the game board without getting caught by the recession... or worse.

Ride along with your drivers, Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chief Ben Bernanke, as they drive a dump truck of cash down Wall Street and bail out the banks in need of help, but be careful; some banks only want to spend taxpayer dollars!

"Chance" takes the form of Current Events, Federal Reserve and Treasury cards. Game play will change based on the decisions you make.

If you get stuck and need advice, just click "Ask a Greenspan" and Alan Greenspan, with his mad financial skills, will help to guide you.

The country and the world are depending on you. Good luck! You're going to need it!

(The above is the introductory text for the featured game, to be accessed by clicking on the image. As with virtually all interactive media clips here at mwbh, Adobe Flash Player is required. H/T to Allahpundit of Hot Air for having nothing better to do than stumble onto toys like this.)
