"Of course, 'nationalization' to capitalist financial interests is a stop-gap measure designed to temporarily refloat the markets and institutions at taxpayer expense. Once they are financially stabilized, the idea is to sell them back to private interests -- when they can make a profit once more. It’s the basic capitalist strategy of socialize the costs and privatize the gains." ~ Jack Rasmus
