The Bitter Pill: A pitch for an economic-themed ARG

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

What would a “free market correction” feel like? What if the U.S. Government had allowed AIG, JPMorgan, Bank of America, and Citigroup to collapse? What would have happened if Treasury had chosen not to prop up the nine largest American banks on October 14, 2008? What news reports would have trickled out over Twitter, CNN, CNBC, Fox News? What emails and text messages would we have received from our banks? What would the impact have felt like over a 48 hour period? Subscribers would experience this alternate reality as filtered through Twitter streams, emails, text messages, photographs, video, and podcasts.

Suggestions and ideas are welcome.
