After an almost untimely and stunning collapse, Morgan Stanley is finally showing signs of life. With fund infusions coming from the U.S. government through the bailout package and Japan’s Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, the American bank is able to buy back its own debts. Such anactivity shows that Morgan Stanley is ready to become an active player in the financial market.
It seems that the bailout plan worked, at least in the case of Morgan Stanley. However, the bailout package should be the last to be approved by the government. In the future, the government should not use the taxpayers’ money to rescue the ailing companies, whose failure were of their own doings. And the lesson that can be learned on this financial crisis is that banks should be more careful in introducing new products. Complex and risky financial products now proved to be unhealthy investments.
