The current political controversy over the role of government in economic affairs has missed one very important issue. At the root of much of the furor is a marked inability or unwillingness to define exactly what government's role has been. Taking an historical perspective, the authors evaluate and establish criteria for government bailouts of private industry, a policy that is consistent with the relationship that has been developing between the two sectors since the Industrial Revolution.
