Something interesting happened today. As my wife and I talked about the economic bailout during dinner, we didn’t notice that Yv, my soon-to-be-seven-year-old was paying close attention to what we were saying. The following is a pretty close description of the dialogue that followed:

  • Yv: … where are they getting US$700?
  • Me: They’re taking the mine from us and every other family.
  • Yv: Have they asked you if it is ok to do it?
  • Me: Not really…
  • Yv: But that’s stealing! Can they be arrested?

At which point I had no answer to give her…
