Their undying quest: fighting together to prevent the credit market from collapsing and creating a rift in the space-time continuum that would transport America back to 1929.

    Private bailouts aren’t unheard of. In a 1907 crash, J.P. Morgan and his Wall Street cronies put together a rescue package designed to prop up other trust institutions. Of course, they all ended up much richer afterwards.
