Alicia Keys recently wrote “If we can bail out Wall Street why can’t we bail out the poor? Drop their debts and give them hope.” in The Guardian.
I say, “Wall Street can be bailed out because it already has a proven wealth system. They can receive that new money. In order for the poor to be bailed out they have to be educated about money and how it works. You know the saying, “pour” new wine in old bottles and they’ll crack because they’re not prepared for new wine. New bottles get new wine because they’re prepared to receive new wine. The poor has to be prepared to receive a bailout. Wall Street was prepared to receive one. Until that preparation is in order, it can never happen the way people would like it to happen.”
