But we digress. Bill concludes "PIMCO’s advice to policymakers is as follows: you can’t bail out everyone, yet economic recovery is not possible unless certain critical asset sectors are not only reliquefied, but rejuvenated in price. Capitalism at its philosophical and practical center depends on credit, and while new loans can be and are being advanced via the banking system, it’s a much more difficult task to force shadow banks to lend. That lending depends on securitization which in turn depends on stable and eventually higher asset prices than currently exist."
Ok, we get it and we like it, but as hard as we try, we can't help being cynical in asking just how much of a benefit for his investors (and himself personally) would Bill reap as the U.S. uses taxpayer money to purchases these "cheap" security classes.
