Won't work.
It's going to be more paper shuffling.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.

Well I am joking. There wouldn’t be buyers for the number of shares needed to raise the capital, and the dilution of the shares would tank the stocks and ruin the shareholders, which is really what should happen. There would probably be some cases where they could make it work, but to me it is funny (in a very black sort of way) that the taxpayers are doing—under coercion from the banks via elected officials—exactly what the banks know would be suicide to actually do.
