It is possible that the 700 billion dollar bailout may backfire. The banks will have to sell their bad derivatives at less than cost, thus incurring a loss. Such losses may put the banks in bankruptcy.
They can carry such derivatives on their books at full value until there have been sufficient sales to establish a new and lower value. The fact that just some banks sell at less than full cost may put all banks under a lot of pressure.
