Germany Joins Bailout Bandwagon

German President Horst Kohler and Parliament members approved a bank bailout plan Friday worth more than $674 billion.

…Economics Minister Michael Glos said the intervention plan that passed a parliamentary vote and was signed by Kohler was aimed at helping German citizens during the ongoing global economic crisis, Deutsche Welle said.

The financial official defended the plan that has come under fire since being proposed, saying it will bring hope to the countrys troubled economy.

“We can solve the problems,” Glos said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s administration would like the plan ready to go into effect by the time banks open Monday, Deutsche Welle said.
