An analogy I like to use for the economy and bailout(s) is a busy freeway. We’re all out there driving, going our own speeds, choosing our lanes. Sometimes you’re in the fast lane, sometimes the slow.
Traffic is always there. You can hop lanes and try to beat the overall flow, but the speed of others affects your progress.
Accidents happen. A lane or two gets blocked as a result. Cars following in the same lane as the crash are stopped and require a merge. Cars in the other lanes are still moving, but their flow is impacted as the blocked lanes attempt to merge (and rubbernecking at the carnage).
If you’re a driver in the lane of the accident, you’re stuck until you can merge to a lane of moving traffic. Your forward progress requires a merge to an adjacent lane.
The drivers in other lanes are performing microbailouts. They’re letting you in so a portion of the freeway doesn’t stagnate.
