    Well I guess thats true, they can't profit. They aren't losing the money they gambled by investing, that's for sure. Of course to businesses invested in those pools, it means they are getting the guaranteed interest gains that they thought they would because of government backing, but i suppose if in the long run it saves the economy its worth the government's intervention.
