    A rescue plan for the U.S. economy is still in the works, but it is
likely already too late. Bailout or no bailout, America's financial system is
bucking under stresses that have been building for years, if not decades. The
world's largest economy has been erected on a mountain of debt from the
national government right down to ordinary people with hefty mortgages and
maxed-out plastic. The problems are systemic, affect every corner of the
economy and are spilling across borders to affect other nations as well. Some
analysts are even predicting a depression the likes of which we haven't seen
since the 1930s.
