520    The bailouts during the recent financial crisis enraged 
       the public. They felt unfair-and counterproductive: people
       who take risks must be allowed to fail. If we reward firms
       that make irresponsible investments, costing taxpayers 
       billions of dollars, aren't we encouraging them to 
       continue to act irresponsibly, setting the stage for 
       future crises? And beyond the ethics of it was the 
       question of whether the government even had the authority 
       to bail out failing firms like Bear Stearns and AIG. The 
       answer, according to Eric A. Posner, is no. The federal 
       government freely and frequently violated the law with the
       bailouts-but it did so in the public interest. An 
       understandable lack of sympathy toward Wall Street has 
       obscured the fact that bailouts have happened throughout 
       economic history and are unavoidable in any modern, market
       -based economy. And they're actually good. Contrary to 
       popular belief, the financial system cannot operate 
       properly unless the government stands ready to bail out 
       banks and other firms. Taking up the common objections 
       raised by both right and left, Posner argues that future 
       bailouts will occur. Acknowledging that inevitability, we 
       can and must look ahead and carefully assess our policy 
       options before we need them.
